Some crimes require proof that the defendant not only committed an illegal act, but also with an illegal purpose. With the overwhelming majority of crimes, defendants must act intentionally—or at least recklessly—in order to be guilty. Statutes that require intentional acts fall under either “general intent” or “specific intent.” (For more on the mental state, or “mens rea,” required to commit a crime, see How Defendants' Mental States Affect Their Responsibility for a Crime ref.: The extent and nature of involvement in other criminal groups, also predominantly controlled by men, are often limited to sexual service roles or other secondary positions Should the state wish to make rehabilitation programs a higher priority, it will need to invest additional funds, as well as address other barriers to the implementation of effective programs for inmates and parolees These data almost certainly understate the true numbers of hate crimes committed.

Others believe that Mark Kilroy was a human sacrifice murdered because Constanzos� true belief in Palo Mayombe required his death; for these adherents, what happened in Matamoros could and does happen across the nation."

Cases in which the defendants were regarded by prosecutors as professional white collar offenders, or in which an ostensibly legitimate enterprise was in fact pervaded by illegal purposes or practices, would presumbly be regarded by prosecutors as worthy of the enhanced sanctions of RICO. 377 Notably, almost none of these cases involves even a hint of organized criminal activity The percentage of 8th grade boys reporting past-year use of steroids increased from 1.6 percent in 1998 to 2.5 percent in 1999, and from 1.9 percent to 2.8 percent among 10th grade boys. Anabolic steroids are illicitly smuggled from Mexico and European countries to the United States. Recent DEA reporting indicates that Russian, Romanian, and Greek nationals are significant traffickers of steroids and are responsible for substantial shipments of steroids entering the United States ref.:
The current idea is that each case of criminality results from a peculiar, if not unique, combination of factors, each with its own degree of weight , e.g. Crimes that otherwise could not have been joined in the same indictment could be amalgamated, 195 crimes over which the federal government would ordinarily not have jurisdiction could be proved, 196 and defendants who were involved in only a small part of the operation could be tied into the same indictment. 197 In addition, greatly enhanced penalties would be available, without the need for procedurally cumbersome mechanisms such as those of the Dangerous Special Offender statute. 198 If Turkette was guilty of violating RICO, then almost anyone who could be characterized as a professional criminal could be convicted on evidence of several of his activities Chechen and other ethnic crime groups are highly visible, but most organized crime involves a broad range of actors working together to promote their financial interests by using violence or threats of violence. In most of the world, organized crime is primarily associated with the illicit sectors of the economy. Although post-Soviet organized crime groups have moved into the drug trade, especially since the fall of the Taliban, the vast wealth of Russian organized crime derives from its involvement in the legitimate economy, including important sectors like banking, real estate, transport, shipping, and heavy industry, especially aluminum production It is precisely because of this conceptual problem that the new term democide (from the Greek demos for "people") is useful.
