Dictionary defines crime as a wicked act or an offence objectionable under law. True! A crime is an activity that comes in conflict with law and deserves the doer to be punished. But the question is- Why it happens? What instigates a person to go on killing spree without caring the result? What incites him to act violently and commit wrong, to the extent of taking one's life?
Mother of all evils is anger. It is the anger that makes one blind, vanquishes reason and drives him or her act recklessly ending on something irreparably destructive. It induces a frame of mind, which is devoid of rationality and is targeted upon a sole aim- hurt. About more than half of these misdeeds are said to be performed at the spur of the moment and are the by-product of anger, while rest are pre-planned.
Often we blame on government's heedlessness or call for Police Department's laxity as the main causes for accumulation of crime in society. But, don't you think somewhere down the line, it is we, the people, who are responsible for such a spate of ill-will activities.
As much responsible is the governance system for the country's security as we, the citizens of this country. To bring order and peace in country, its citizens first need to imbibe order in them. To prevent any occurrence of crime, one need to suppress the very root causes of crime- anger and ill-will. Agitation invokes harbor of ill-will, which if not suppressed leads to law breaking activities. Therefore to avoid this situation, we need to control our streak of anger and bring an inner calm that has the power of pacifying the tide of anger and flow away its ill effects.
