Dollar for dollar which crime is more profitable (money-wise) to do?
disclaimer ]I am not thinking of a career as a criminal. I am not advocating stealing from anyone.
Some friends and discussing the motivations of why criminals do certain crimes that led to why some do certain crimes over others. Those who steal cars do not burglarize places, those who sell dope don’t steal bikes. Part of why people do what they do illegally is money, another part could be the effort needed to do the crime, or the risk of arrest. Dollar per dollar (factoring in profit, effort, risk both physically and arrest) out of which crime is the highest profit made verses the negatives:
• Jewel thief.
• Dope dealer.
• Bike thief.
• Car thief.
• Booster (professional shoplifter).
• I.D. thief
I.E for each $100 profit which would be the easiest to do, the less risk of getting caught, less sentence of you get caught, less chance of getting shot by the person you are stealing from, shop by someone else, ease on disposing the goods if that was the way on which the stolen goods would be converted to cash, etc. Even if the actual dollar amount was smaller say stealing a $3,000 diamond ring and fencing it for $80 bucks as oppose to stealing a $26,000 vehicle and flipping it for $1,200, effort needed to get the item, versus risk, and ease of cash conversion which crime is easier to do dollar for dollar?
