    Is running a stop sign a crime, or is merely illegal? Not all law breaking is criminal. I think that is the point Leopold i strying to make.

    I don't know. I've thought that all illegal acts are crimes and all crimes are illegal. What exactly is the difference?

    None...

    crime (krīm) Pronunciation Key
    n.
    1. An act committed or omitted in violation of a law forbidding or commanding it and for which punishment is imposed upon conviction.
    2. Unlawful activity: statistics relating to violent crime.

    Both mean 'breaking the law'.

    Why would anyone even be arguing this, unless they are just bored and want to post bullshit?

    Well this is what wiki says:

    A crime is an act that violates a political, religious, or moral command considered important in protecting the interests of the State or the welfare of its citizens or subjects.

    I guess one could argue that running a stop sign is a crime because it's a moral command that protects its citizens. Running a stop sign could kill a person and you have the moral obligation to stop.

    Maybe?

    Quoting from wikipedia (article on crime)
    "Not all breaches of the law, however, are considered crimes, for example, breaches of contract and other civil law offenses."
    Traffic offenses are not generally thought to be criminal offenses in many countries - that is my understanding, but I lacked the time to do proper research on the point.

    i couldnt care less if you insult a religion. if you insult a person because of their religion it is a different story... unless they are trying to force their religion on others, in which case they are fair game.

    samcdkey is continuosly targeted by bigots here. Sandy needs to shut up or grow a spine as thick as sam's. If bashing Muslims is OK here then by all means christians should be fair game as well.
