That is so not true! People turn themselves into criminals.

What a load of old bollards raftl If that were the case, there'd be no crime anywhere else.

People need to start taking responsibility for their own actions instead of blaming the economy/upbringing/where they live/lack of education/etc**

Nobody forces people to commit such crimes, they make a conscious decision to do so. Something like that takes at least some prior planning, if not a lot of prior planning! That's not a spur of the moment crime. To hurt innocent people going about their lawful employment & business is beneath contempt.

If people like them worried more about making something better of themselves instead of wanting the best tv/game console/mobile/whatever** then they'd be a success lawfully and probably feel a lot better about themselves. That's just the easy option! Working for what you get is too much like hard work for some - literally!!

Economic deprivation pushes crime up, its a fact. People shouldn't turn to crime but they do.
