What Makes People To Steal?

TOPIC: what makes people to steal?

Its troubles my mine when I see young youth under the age of 18 are be killed for robbery. The question that mount my mind what makes them to do that, is it laziness, unemployment or non-proper training. Recently I came across four youths under the age of 18 were killed for robbery case. What is happening? Someone should help why people are stealing.

Stealing could be due to mental illness.Have you heard about kleptomania?

Or it could be due to hunger or poverty.Or could be due to immediate need,

like it's your last resort.And as for younger generations,stealing is a form of

rebellion(against parents,teachers,etc)

For some people its not even greed or poverty, they just get a compulsion to take something thats not their's, or something they dont even need,

I used to have a cousin that was a serious klepto, we (even my dad and mum) used to run and hide our valuables/ not so valuables anytime she came to stay, her case was so bad that nothing was safe around her,

Not everybody steals because of greed, most times people steal things they do not even need or want, they just do it on impulse.

To my own best of knowledge d only reason why people steal is because of greed, because u are poor is not a good reason for u to steal rather greed makes poor people to want to live big which resort to stealing.
