It does not matter. Some crimes are justifiable depending on the reason for the crime.

Example...................

Katrina victims break into store for food............OK by me. Katrina victims break into store for guns...........Not OK by me.

I don't think so...

breaking into stores to take food that's going to perish any way isn't what I call a crime.

I must agree with Inyri and Relander here. Certain (small) crimes can be justified, if you are starving you shouldn't be punished for stealing a bread, if you need to pee and there clearly is no legal place to pee (a public restroom or toilet in a restaurant or bar) you shouldn't be find for doing so. This being said one should always look into alternatives, rather then stealing a bread one should first try to ask or beg for one, and instead of peeing against the nearest object one should find a location that has a minimal affect to your enviroment. If you tried all alternatives then for certain "crimes" you should not be punished.

Thats right,i think the Judge that condemn someone who is peeing in a open Place or condemn someone of stealing a Bread cause of Hunger,should go to jail for not under 3 Months,you ask why? Cause that Judge is so ignorant in practicing his given Law,that he doesnt mentioned that there is something like moralic Law.

Basically, "illegal" is not the same thing as "wrong". So yes, crime can be justified in some cases. The reason for commiting the crime is the imortant factor.

Of course it can be justified sometimes, as long as people don't take for granted that they can do as they please.

Certainly it can be justified the law, especially lately, is often in the wrong.

Fine by me.

Katrina victims break into store for food............OK by me. Katrina victims break into store for guns...........Not OK by me.

Why is stealing a gun "not ok", while stealing food is? A gun is equally or even more important - as a looter deterrent. But in the case of a natural disaster like Katrina, looting food guns, or anything else is unacceptable. The military and rescue groups came in and established control within a couple of days. The infants and other weak people had enough food to last until then. If everybody just started looting like that, the chaos and death rate would have been even worse.

Precisely what I'm getting at. Intresting how the media covered those minorities scaveging from stores as "looters" and the anglo's were called "survivors"

The media trys to color, litterally, the stories they cover

It's all to do with justice and law. In some ways they are close-knit and in others they have nothing to do with eachother.
