Are you convinced that you could never get away with committing a violent crime due to the myriad of ways they can be solved these days?

  Criminologists, detectives, forensics experts, and others in those fields have infinitely more combined experience in crime-solving than does the average violent criminal, especially more experience than the first-time violent criminal, or a person who commits a violent without malice or forethought and then attempts to cover it up or shift the blame elsewhere.
  Are you convinced that you yourself could never get away with committing a violent crime due to the myriad of ways they can be solved these days?






[NOTE: I am not asking the broad question as to whether or not you would ever commit a violent crime based on your morals, values, upbringing, temperament, education, spiritual or religious beliefs, the amount you care about human life and respect you have for the safety, comfort, liberty and wellbeing of others. My question is more specific in scope: does the probability of easily being found out play into the myriad of other reasons that deter you from committing a crime of violence against another person or against other people?]

    I would never commit a violent crime based on my morals, values, upbringing, temperament, education, spiritual and or religious beliefs, the amount I care about human life and respect I have for the safety, comfort, liberty and wellbeing of others....gawd, Randy.

      I’m sending The Q&A Police to investigate you.

    Ok, disclaimer aside...I would have to say yes.  The way my luck is, it's a sure thing that I'd get busted every time.   (what do you mean an ant witnessed it?)

      Lots of ants!  (Rumor has it that Randy D may be their puppet master.)

    I'm convinced I can't get away with committing any crime because I can't get away with driving 20 km/h above the speed limit, even when I'm the slowest driver on the road.  However, I may have learned something from binge-watching CSI.

    But real life doesn't follow all those cop show scripts.

    According to  FBI crime stats there are currently about 256,000 cold case murders nationwide, some older than 40 years. 

    On average investigators are able to close roughly  62% of all murder cases, and only 35% of rapes and other crimes. That breaks down to about a 40% chance that someone who commits assault, rape, or murder will not be caught. Better than casino odds. 

    So the question is, do you feel lucky ...

      Er, um, I haven’t made any reference whatsoever to any TV shows, I’m referring to real-life situations just as much as you are.

    People who investigate the investigators tell me that less than 20% of violent crimes are ever solved. 

    That worries me because other investigators report that 12% of homicides in the US involve a cop on duty. That does not show up in the news because cops don't publish such statistics, for obvious reasons.
