    The answer is simple, we live in a fallen world.

    Because law enforcement has to ideally toe a really fine line between invasion of privacy and violating rights, and controlling crime. The only way to completely control crime is to completely control the population, and I think we'll all agree that we wouldn't tolerate that very well.

    Demands and desires are increasing.

    Now even 10 years old boy wanted to have ipad or iphone terribly and to get that he can take some serious steps.

    There are many other reasons ... Just look around and you will understand.

    We are by our nature flawed and imperfect.  I would suspect that actual crime is greater in a developed country or region more than in a completely undeveloped area.  When ones life is totally dependent on the cooperation of his tribe or village he is less likely to behave in ways that would result in his expulsion from that group.  When ones survival is separate from his social obligations he is more likely to behave in ways that might result in his ouster. 

    We do not make the best choices every time we act and the more freedom to act against the common will or the common good the more likely it is that we will choose to act against the common.  It is a product of our flawed nature and the liberty enjoyed by relatively prosperous societies.  The ordinary person will be satisfied by dressing differently, talking loud, playing music loud or some other individualistic action.  The worst of us elevates himself so far above social convention that even reasonable moral restrictions are too binding.
