54. No, only a small percentage of career criminals turn to murder
And many murderers were not career criminals at the time they committed their crime. Think abused or jilted spouse.

Nonetheless, the fact that a person is committing major crimes is a very good indication that they will continue to commit major crimes. So how do we deal with them while they are committing the crimes? How can a society function if crime runs rampant through it? How can people live their lives if what they work for and what they create can be stolen away by anybody bold enough to simply take it from them? How, if those that try to resist crime are punished as much as the criminals are?

Is the only alternative to have a omnipresent police force to make catching criminals a virtual certainty?
