Via Kathy Shaidle I see this note on the link between poverty and crime.

"We associate crime with poverty because criminals are so often poor. However, the association is an inversion — people don`t become drug-addicted thieves because they`re poor— they`re poor because they`re drug-addicted thieves. "

It`s even simpler than that. I can explain the link between poverty and crime in three short words: Crime Doesn`t Pay.
