These crimes include property crimes (theft, forgery, and vandalism), personal crimes (rape, robbery, assault, and murder), and performance crimes (e. g., fighting and disturbing the peace). Foreign friendly civilian crimes are committed against citizens of another country. The same types of crimes found under extra-occupational crimes but committed against foreigners, are examples. Enemy civilian social system crimes are crimes against residents of countries in which the U. S. military is fighting. Examples of such crimes include property crimes (e. g., looting and pillaging), personal crimes (e. g., committing atrocities and massacres), and performance crimes (e. g., colluding with citizens to harm the U. S. military). Inter-occupational crimes are crimes committed against the enemy military system. These include property crimes (e. g., misappropriation of captured supplies), personal crimes (e. g., torture and mistreatment of prisoners of war), and performance crimes (e. g., helping the enemy). o State-corporate crime - Governmental agencies are employers (or “corporations”) and these agencies and their employees sometimes commit various types of misconduct. Crime is committed on behalf of the government. According to Ross and Rothe ( 2008), those who expose state crime offenders run the risk of experiencing the following responses from the state: Censure : Officials may withdraw support or withhold information. Scapegoating : Officials may blame lower-level employees for the misconduct. Retaliation : Officials may target the advocates exposing the wrongdoing. Defiance or resistance : Officials may block any efforts toward change. Plausible deniability : Officials may conceal actions to make behavior seem appropriate.
