Crimes happen even in a "safe" or "secured setting." Previously, Sulu cops killed four military officers with the ranks of major, captain, sergeant and army corporal who were on a mission to find bombmakers of Abu Sayyaf Group.
Other types of crimes do not entail the killing of a person. There are times when a crime would involve money or deceit. In connection to such crimes, the National Bureau of Investigation arrested Marcos and outlined the charges that he would be facing. Nonetheless, whether it would involve the taking of the life of a person or the taking of property like money, etc., a crime will be a crime that necessitates punishment.
