Man, I wonder if there are these things call factors that influence the lives of other people, and I wonder if these factors might cause someone who lives in New York to have a different life and outlook than someone who lives in Mobile, or Savannah, or Indianapolis.

Yes and it does't add up. You are who you chose to be. The state your in does't matter ask a homeless person if there still homeless just because there in a different city or state. There plenty of examples I can give you that is an alternative. Church outreach, food paniterys, food stamps, etc etc etc.

It doesn’t add up that different people with different personalities and different experiences and different lives living in different places might choose different options when faced with inescapable poverty?

You do know humans are individuals, right?

Nothing gives you any reason to go to crime. If you think you do you are just giving your self the excuse to commit a crime. Versus being an adult and finding you an alternative.

For some reason you seem stuck on the idea than someone haveing a reason for committing a crime somehow absolves them of their actions, which isn’t what this means.

Because if you have never committed a crime. Your logic would be useless since you would be using your own interpretations on the matter and not actual facts. So it is a very relevant question.
