Can crime be justified if committed for a Valid reason like public welfare?
I guess it depends on the type of crime being commited. For instance some would claim killing of dictators is good for public welfare. Are we thinking of the United States public welfare or someone elses? I do believe generally a crime is a crime once you start determing if something is for the benefit of the people you scew the laws to much
It would not be a crime if it were for a valid reason. For example; a store is on fire, and you smash the glass to get out. You are not guilty of destruction of property because you had a valid reason.
A crime is a crime, is a crime. You would have to ask who determines that it is for "public welfare" and what is "valid". There are laws that tell you what you can do under specific circumstances, therefore, if it is legal under certain cercumstances it is not a crime. But if a person decides to play, say Robin Hood, robbing stores to give to the poor, there is no law that justifies that even if Robin Hood thinks he is doing so in the interest of public welfare and would certainly end up in jail. There is a reason for laws so that each person does not get to determine what crime they can commit in the interest of what they believe is "valid"
No, crime is crime. There is a way to solve public welfare issues without committing a crime. Perhaps the reason we have welfare issues is crime, so two wrongs don't make a right.
For me, as long as there is a valid reason, the crime committed can never be or will never be consider as a crime. But by the end of the day, it still depends on the hands of the authority if they consider it as a crime or not.
there is authority to check the crime and to have the proposal of public welfare..so crime in society will add to the woe of the society... again whether the crime is serious if it is so then public welfare cannot be accepted for such crime...better judge, who win the race whether crime or welfare and also need to re look the impact of the crime again on society...better avoid the crime ,we cannot makes weaken one part of society just for making another aspect strong
Examples of my opinion- Killing a rapist who raped your daughter- Justified
Killing the guy who ran into your car-Not justified
To the next person it may be the opposite and there will always be those who don't believe any crime is justified. All opinions!
