Crime

The definition of the word crime, according to the presentday dictionary is: An act committed or omitted in violation of a law forbiddingor commanding it and for which punishment is imposed upon conviction or unlawfulactivity: statistics relating to violent crime.

Having defined the term itself, let us look deeperinto the dark and dangerous world, filled with lies, deception, thievery,murder and other sinister deeds...

Since the dawn of time, mankind had the need toestablish and maintain a certain level of social order and control. A mechanismwas needed that would enable a certain group or a society to function in specificparameters. The result of that need was the establishment of law, an agreedcode of conduct, applied to everyone without exceptions. That in turn, had theappearance of individuals or organized groups unwilling to act according tothis agreed code of conduct known as the law. The act of defiance against thelaw was termed CRIME.

At the center of organized crime is a body with itsown hierarchy, in a way similar to its legal counterpart. That type oforganization is ever conspiring to obtain a certain kind of profit throughillegal means such as violence, bribery and brute force accompanied withretribution threats. Its wide specter of activities cover from credit cardfraud, gun running, illegal gambling, insurance fraud, kidnapping for ransom, tonarcotics trade, pornography, prostitution, racketeering, smuggling and vehicletheft.

Now let us move to some of the prominentorganizations, particularly successful in their gruesome enterprise. Probablythe most infamous is the Italian mafia known as Cosa Nostra. A veil of mysterycovers this organization, hiding the truth about their origin and structure. Basedin Sicily, it consists of associated criminal groups with a strict code ofconduct, where each individual group is referred to as The Family, and membersare commonly called Mafioso

Shoulder to shoulder with Cosa Nostra stands theirinfamous counterpart, the Japanese Yakuza. They are also known as Bōryokudan, aname given to them by the Japanese police force and the media, meaning “TheViolence Group” as opposed to the name which they use to describe themselves "NinkyōDantai" meaning the “The Chivalrous Organization”. Their structuralintegrity lies within the combination of traditional and modern system

We have seen some of the examples of how the crimeevolved since its appearance to this date. It was a horrifying road paved withevil intentions, ghastly deeds and tears of those who felt injustice done uponthem at the hands of the wicked. This category contains the documentariesportraying that road along with the stories of people from both sides of thelaw.
