Blue Collar Crime in Pakistan

Here you may find information as to blue collar crime in Pakistan. Our dedicated team of professional lawyers may best assists their clients in combating blue collar crimes in Pakistan.

Blue-collar crime is a term given to criminal acts more likely to be committed by citizens of lower social class in society, such as those which inflict direct harm on the person or property of others. This is in contrast to white-collar crime, which is generally committed by citizens of higher social class, who are more likely to be presented with the opportunity to commit such crimes.

Blue collar crimes are considered to be criminal offenses which are of a less social platform than that of professional white collar crimes. While many blue collar crimes involve force, violence, or weapons, they are also types criminal offenses which are simply crimes of opportunity.

In criminology, blue-collar crime is any crime committed by an individual from a lower social class as opposed to white-collar crime which is associated with crime committed by individuals of a higher social class.

"Blue-collar crime" is an informal classification and holds no particular legal weight. For the most part, blue-collar crime entails whatever crimes are most immediately possible for a person to commit, those that are most often spurred by passion rather than those that require careful deliberation. Crimes against the person, crimes against property, and many forms of victimless crime such as prostitution, gambling and drug abuse all tend to be classified as blue-collar crime. Blue-collar crimes are, for the most part, those that cause an immediate and highly visible injury to society, so they're usually punished much more rapidly and severely than white-collar crime. Also, citizens of lower social class cannot generally afford high-quality legal assistance, which means they tend to suffer far more severe punishment than white-collar criminals.

Blue-collar crimes are crimes that happen on the streets everyday. This is just one among the many types of crimes such as white-collar crimes and computer crimes which involves the use of computers in committing the crimes. Blue-collar crimes can be include, but are not limited to the following: Kidnapping, Shoplifting, Vandalism, Rape.

Blue collar crimes are also crimes which are more visible, detected sooner, and occur on a more frequent basis than crimes of a white collar nature.

Blue collar crimes may involve the following types of crimes, but not limited to:

  • Forms of Robbery;

  • Kidnapping;

  • Gang Related Crimes;

  • Sexual Crimes;

  • Drug Crimes;

  • Assault or Battery;

  • Domestic Violence;

  • Stalking;

  • Illegal Gambling;

  • Extortion through Intimidation;

  • Prostitution & Solicitation

  • And many other types of crimes.

Citizens of higher social class are certainly capable of committing "blue-collar" crimes, and do, all the time. However, the vast majority of these crimes are committed by citizens of lower social class, who in turn have limited opportunities to commit white-collar crimes such as financial fraud and money laundering, which is how these classifications originated.
