17. apprenticeship in criminal behavior
is and always has been appealing to some people moreso than others, regardless of income.

the idea that poverty is a causal factor in crime is not established, regardless of what you suspect

with the understanding that correlation does not equal causation, there are other factors that are far more correlated with crime than poverty is.
