Poverty and crime

Despondent man kills 3-mo-old son — INQ.net

This is not the first time that parents have killed their children out of poverty. Several years ago a man poisoned his children and his wife, then tried to kill himself as well, but survived. There have been stories of mothers who kill their children, or fathers who go crazy and turn on their families. Poverty kills, in more ways than one. This is why it’s a sin to flaunt one’s wealth at a time when people are dying of hunger. This is why it’s a crime to steal from public coffers when people are dying of poverty.
