Throughout history, men have always been seen as major criminals. In short, biology determined the destiny by looking at a male criminal. Gender and organized crime are the main factors.
The main factors observed to ensure the dominance of crime were:
- Testosterone hormone;
- Male competition in socialization since early childhood;
- Male tolerance and willingness to tolerate pain;
- Herd instinct;
- Aboriginal cultural views “man as hunter” and murderer.
Women were always useful as being bar dancers, prostitutes or lesser gang members but were not committing serious crimes themselves.
This may be true of large-scale organized crime in earlier decades and centuries, particularly in cities around the world where urban life provided the wilderness in which violent criminals flourished.
Now, in the 21st century, the nature of Gender organized crime (“OCG”) has changed as technology has changed the way crime is paid and a killer can end a life. The criminal who uses the keystrokes of a computer to rob an illegal drug deal or steal from a financial institution, whether it is a bank, mutual fund or insurance company , can easily be female.
On reflection, why should crime not change like any other industry in the 21st century which is affected by the power of the Internet and the potential of cyber crimes?
And if so, what difference does a person make by making keystrokes?
In this sense, increasingly OCG can be seen evolving towards equality in opportunity, regardless of gender.
Sometimes “wet crime” is required. It is the same type of crime where people are killed by guns for hire, drug deals are done on the street, drug dealers are killed when deals go bad, and violence is used as a method of persuasion. Is done in the form. The reasons for violent persuasion vary : collecting debts, taking revenge, ending the competition, such personal fights that men can fuel testosterone, armed robbery when all else fails.
In short, business as usual in the world of organized crime at lower levels of organization.
The male (Gender) historically had a numerical advantage in wet crime because physical force or the ability to fight to death was compatible with a physically strong male. While women are fully capable of gaining physical strength – see the number of women police, military and workers in every profession – it has proved to be a lesser crime with women. There are never more than 25% in any study.
At higher levels of crime organizations, there are increasing numbers of women who play executive roles, mostly widows or wives of wives who have been jailed. He took over the reins. They are very good at strategy making and often successful.
A question for law enforcement officers: Has the criminal crime system adjusted to the increasing gender equality of senior criminals operating organized crime? What if the crime boss is a woman?
Today, a distinctive feature of organized crime is the greater importance of social relations. It is not possible to begin without a good connection to suppliers, customers, co-offenders, and profitable criminal opportunities. Trust is important. Women are seen as more trustworthy. The changing character of organized crime provides women with new criminal opportunities.
Drugs, firearms, and counterfeit goods sour from all over the world. OCGs often have a presence in many courts. The global communications infrastructure enables criminals to operate across geographical boundaries, to target countries from far away, and to reach continents in other countries. Women are usually able to pass investigations more easily and are more anonymous. But by no means less powerful as criminals.
