Under the surface of official crime rates, we often have the really bad behaviour by powerful institutions which does give rise to official crimes, even if moral responsibility remains with the offenders.

Non-payment can be dealt with in different ways and reduced payment is a whole lot better than the criminogenic wasteland of non-occupation. Is housing too important to be a commodity dealt with by crude business methods?
