What is the social definition of crime?
According to the US Legal Definitions website: A hate crime is usually defined by state law as one that involves threats, harassment, or physical harm and is mot…ivated by prejudice against someone's race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation or physical or mental disability. Laws vary by state and if hate crimes are provided for by statute, the defintions of hate crimes and penalties imposed vary. States that have hate crime statutes provide harsher penalites for such offenses. The underlying criminal offenses that are designated in hate crime laws include, but are not limited to, crimes against persons like harassment, terroristic threats, assault and crimes against property like criminal trespass, criminal mischief and arson. It may also include Vandalism causing damage to a church, synagogue, cemetery, mortuary, memorial to the dead, school, educational facility, community center, municipal building, courthouse, juvenile detention center, grounds surrounding such places or personal property located within such places. The current federal law regarding hate crimes deals with crimes where the offender is motivated by bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientatio, or ethnicity/national originn and only applies if the crime happens when a person is attending a public school or is at work or participating in one of four other "federally protected activities."

A social system in which the means of producing and distributing goods are owned collectively and political power is exercised by the whole community Political system in which… the (major) means of production are not in private or institutional hands, but under social control. Typically this is seen as one aspect of a more general concern for people's equal rights to various benefits (health, education), and of a concern to limit the inequalities of wealth and power produced by the unrestricted operations of market forces. Socialism avoids the totalitarian implications of communism, and works within liberal democratic constitutions.
A crime which works infamy in the person who commits it. 189 S.E. 441. At common law, any infamous crime was one that rendered the person convicted thereof incompetent as a wi…tness. 4 N.Y. Cr. R. 545, 546. This was based on the theory of untrustworthiness whereby a testimonial disqualification was imposed to prevent the introduction of evidence thought not entitled to credence. In this sense, infamous crimes comprehended treason, felonies and any crime involving the element of deceit 23 F. 136, 137 and examined the nature of the crime rather than the nature of the punishment inflicted. The modern view of infamous crimes, which under Art. V of the Constitution must be prosecuted by indictment, is any crime that is punishable by death or imprisonment in a state penal institution, with or without hard labor for more than one year. See 604 F. 2d 569, 572. Under this view, it is determined by the nature of the punishment, which a court is authorized to impose, and not by the character of the crime. The common law procedure of excluding witnesses because of prior infamous convictions is no longer followed, although such convictions may affect the credibility of the witness. See 182 A. 2d 15, 16.

In its purest form crime prevention looks at people (usually babies, children and young teens) who are not involved in criminal activity and asks, "What can we do to make sure… they never come into conflict with the law?" Crime prevention also looks at places and situations which are not yet troubled by much criminal activity and asks, "How can we make sure crime never becomes a significant problem here?" For example, in the early 1980s, a new mining community was being built in north-eastern British Columbia - Tumbler Ridge. The designers of the town followed principles which ensured a good flow of foot traffic through all parts of the town, and an easy view of areas where crime might occur, thus discouraging criminal activity. Because this was a brand new town, Tumbler Ridge was a classic example of pure crime prevention.
