    Which crime is worst, white collar or blue collar and why?

    White collar crime is suppose to be victimless  on the other hand blue collar is supposed to be violent. I hope some legal person signs in on this for an open debate.

    There is no such thing as a vitimless crime other than with the exception of someone buying drugs for their personal use or paying for sex. Even with that there will be those who live in the area that don't want those transactions taking place near them or their children.

    With regard to ripping someone off whether one uses a gun or a laptop they can both be equally bad. Just ask any of Bernie Madoff's victims that lost their entire life savings, homes, and investments. When someone betrays your trust it's probably more difficult to get over the hurt than if a random person car jacked you. We live in a time where more and more teens are commiting suicide because of bullying tactics on the internet! One does not have to see or touch a person in order to make them a victim.

    Neither is any worse than the other in theory.  The question that needs to be answered before we can answer this one is; what was the crime?  It is only after that information is revealed that we can then debate which is worse then the other, and ironically as I think about it, that will also give us no solution because we would need to do a massive amount of opinion based research that could be negatively affected by various dependent variables.  The results would most likely be inconclusive.

    I would like to see a victimless crime.  There isn't a crime committed on this earth which could be considered victimless.  I always thought the distinction was absurd.

    While blue collar crime may be more violent and result in something afwul for the victim or victims, white collar crimes usually impact many more lives. Both are bad and should be punished, but ask anyone worked at Enron or one of Madoff's victims and they'll tell you how their lives were devestated. It's a toss up.
