Capitalism in the criminals' mind,

Even criminals make economic decisions. When deciding where to stage a burglary they go to certain neighborhoods more than others; they also look for certain types of people to be their victims. Most often they look for unarmed people to become their victims. Why? Because the cost of committing a crime, is much lower (to the criminal) with a unarmed person. The law of supply and demand isn't just a money thing; it is a universal principle that applies to every economic decision made by any individual.
