    Well, hello boys and girls! I was wondering about branching out with my universally favorite past time. As the title can suggest, true crime! I know a lot of individuals have a keen interest on this subject and I had a little look on the site to see if there was anything available but apart from war crimes.

    So!

    What is crime??? u ask?? well

    Look at that citation, big wow.

    (Side note: Giddens is a great start for those wanting to delve into criminology at a higher level.)

    Anyway.. With the explanation of crime and what exactly crime could be considered, I would like to see what crime is for you guys. I come from a minority country (basically minority = minor set back and issues) and would love to hear from you about the crimes that either happen locally around you. Is there crimes that are prevalent within your societies? What would you consider a lesser crime that happens within other places? Whats the whackiest story you've heard recently?

    So here is a little example of what you get for searching Scottish news:

    Man arrested

    A crossbow and bolt, an axe, a dagger, and a hunting knife were found in an address in Church Court, Philipstoun, along with a quantity of cannabis.

    The search of a house in Auldhill Entry, Bridgend, resulted in the arrest of a 30-year-old man, who is scheduled to appear at Livingston Sheriff Court on Monday.

    Officers say they are continuing with this investigation and are following positive lines of inquiry.

    Det Insp Paul Batten said: "After intelligence was received relating to illicit items, including weapons and drugs, being within a number of West Lothian homes, swift enforcement action was carried out resulting in these recoveries and the arrest, so far, of one man.

    "Our inquiries are continuing and the public can rest assured that all resources at our disposal will be utilised as we continue to target those linked to organised crime in West Lothian."

    Would this be considered a crime within your country for this man to have all these items or would this be the exact description of ur chill asf neighbour that likes to dabble in hunting with that dank kush.

    Would like to hear ur thoughts.

    Thanks

    It just happened. I think i'm more interested to type something in here rather than doing my assignments now.

    Soccer fan clubs in here are like gangsters. Territorial. It's between Jakarta and Bandung clash which i found happening the most. Shame to be a person who was born in Jakarta and live in Bandung, to be honest.

    It just happened again, Haringga Sirila was beaten to death by "Bobotoh", or Bandung soccer club supporters just before the match begin. Can't find any translated reference, but this is in Indonesian : www.cnnindonesia.com/olahraga/20180923223857-142-332585/suporter-persija-tewas-the-jak-siap-bantu-penyidikan-polisi

    Can't write no more. Just disappointment of being here.
