Police data published by Daily Mail on the Internet, provides evidence suggesting that one crime is committed every five seconds in the United States of America. Resulting in seventeen thousand two hundred eight crimes per day. This shocking number evidently demonstrates that on average too many crimes are committed everyday, and while this data is a reliable source that can be relied on to give people an idea of how many crimes are committed everyday on average; it fails in informing us on the reasons or in what situation the criminals were in to have to be in a position to break the law.

When a teenager is arrested because of possession of drugs in a ghetto town, it’s not very alarming because we all expect that to happen, but what happens when a middle age white man who has never had any problems with the law is arrested for the same reason?
