Capitalism and Commodification of Crime The connection between economics and crime activities is multifaceted and complex. Perhaps as a result of this density, there has been thorough coverage of the issue of crime in connection to capitalism which has become elusive to administrative or mainstream criminology, more especially in the United States, regardless of some occasionally high-profile and ostensibly elaborate attempts to address it. The modern market system is capitalism. It has been grafted into almost the entire economic system. The idea behind this modern economic system, capitalism, is that it is not an economic activity’s usefulness-it’s the fulfillment of the actual need of an individual-that is vital, but it’s only its commodification

Transnational and organized crimes are considered to be the violations of laws. For a transnational crime to take place it would require more than one country to be involved in the planning, its execution, and the impact must also be felt by other countries. Because of the multinational culture of transnational crimes, they are considered to be different from other crimes and this can at times be a partial roadblock in defining their causes, as well as developing preventative measures and mitigating factors.

Police were seen in many cities as corrupt, receiving bribes in order to ignore real crimes. Police were thought of as brutal, using excessive force against citizens, often in conjunction with fake charges and unlawful arrests. To the working class, they appeared as a tool of economic leaders to battle against laborers and the relatively new unions. A movement grew, advocating the professionalization of the police forces. Escobar (2003) mentions how professionalization meant enforcing, “high standards for entrance into the force, a rigorous training program, better pay for officers, and more modern equipment and administrative procedures.”(p.175) Reformists argued the position that law enforcement should be carried out impartially, removed from the influence of politicians that had been using police as a force to protect their own interests and attack anything that threatened those interests.
