The society prepares a crime, the criminal commits it-- Henry Thomas Buckle.
Buckle was a chess player and good at recognising the connections many of us seem to struggle with. A bit like the pieces moved by a chess player searching for an opponents weakness, people are nudged by society in one way or the other by the opportunities available to them. Many opportunities are open to all, some are not. Not every body is honest and law abiding. Sometimes people take advantage of an opportunity that they are not entitled to, this is when a crime is committed. It is society that is responsible for the pieces and prepares the rules that define the criminal act. Criminals then do the wrong thing and commit the crime.
@ Agantum--- Thank you for answering the question. Henry Thomas Buckle was also a British Historian who is famous for writing the unfinished 'History of Civilization of England'. Sometimes when you see a crime like the recent Colorado shooting, you find many questions coming to your mind. Why such type of crimes which do not have a established motive and cannot be explained, only happen in most advanced countries.

Here is the gist of it in a statement provided by the judge:"Many police practices may be useful for fighting crime — preventive detention or coerced confessions, for example,” she wrote, “but because they are unconstitutional they cannot be used, no matter how effective.”So much for the idea...
