Top 10 Worst Crimes

The Top Ten
1 Genocide

Easily the worst crime you could commit. Killing millions of people, especially just because they are different than you, is terrible. It's a thought that should never even enter the head of a good citizen or even a bad citizen for that matter. Never.

This has to be one of the worst crimes that anyone could commit on this list. Hundreds of millions are dead, and that's only from a few genocides.

The purposeful killing of a certain ethnic group because of stereotypes is ridiculous, cruel, and by far one of the most stupid things humans have done. Wars are fought, but at least both sides are given the chance to fight. In genocide, the people targeted don't stand a chance. All because of stereotypes and prejudices people hold.

2 Murder

I believe that murder is the worst crime because there are numerous ways to commit it: torture, rape, abuse, and many slow, painful methods. Nowadays, people don't take murder seriously because it occurs so frequently. I'm not saying that murder doesn't matter or that people don't care because it happens often. What I mean is that people have become desensitized to it, so they won't constantly live in fear of being killed. However, when it does happen, they will likely care. Personally, I used to be terrified that someone would break into my house, and it's an unsettling feeling. The thought of people killing others just for amusement disgusts me, even if they are psychologically damaged. They are taking lives, but the murderer would not want to be killed themselves. How would they feel if they were the ones being killed?

3 Terrorism

Fine. You can have something against the leader or the politicians, but in no way are you allowed to attack the people. Simple.

Just a reminder that the United States does state-sponsored terrorism on a regular basis. It also doesn't need to happen on an organizational level. One can be complicit in terrorism by whether purposefully or unintentionally encouraging others to commit such acts.

This is worse than animal cruelty by far. Have you seen 9/11? That was terrorism, and it affected our country in a horrible way! I'm not saying animal cruelty isn't bad. It's just not as bad as terrorism.

4 Torture

Torture has to be worse than murder. Having a person so down that they want to end it quickly but won't let them is far worse than murder. Much worse.

It's when the future tense of the living self happens to be strewn into the discombobulating. Then, nothing is savage. Like shocking gums.

Torture can have a scale on how much pain is put on the person. But I think that it is very bad, for the fact that some people would beg to be killed instead of tortured.

5 Rape

You can provide reasons for most crimes. Murder? Maybe they were defending themselves. Burglary? They needed something to eat. I'm not saying these are excusable, but rape cannot ever be justified. Rapists are selfish and shouldn't be regarded as humans. The amount of fear, guilt, and trauma victims go through is actually insane. It sticks for life. It's sickening how many people have been raped. People say "all men aren't like this," but it's so sad how many are. It's even normalized and blamed on the victim. "What were you wearing" or "You probably liked it." Stop blaming victims. This is the most traumatizing crime. Humans are like toys to rapists. And in no way, shape, or form should anyone go through this.

6 Slavery

I would rather die in war than to be a slave my whole life... It's torture, complete cruelty. Work all day for no pay and get whipped. That's worse than death.

Absolutely the worst. 24/7 hard labor and for nothing. And to think, there are still slaves around the world, even today! Just messed up.

Why did people do this back then? It is so cruel, especially when you think about the whipping.

7 Animal Cruelty

Animal cruelty is disgusting! I don't care what anyone says, animal cruelty should be at the top of this list. Animals are living, breathing beings that have feelings. Animals are being slaughtered for food every day, starved, tested on, forced to work, and spend most days in tiny cages with no access to water.

Carriage horses in Egypt are being forced to work all day, every day, and fed trash. A lot of horses are dying in Egypt from colic, and no one seems to care because apparently horses (and other animals) are disposable. Not to mention, horses in New York are also being forced to pull carriages while being starved and tired. They're constantly being beaten and aren't even kept in proper stalls.

Additionally, there's the issue of horse riding. I'm not saying all horse riding is abuse (I ride horses), but a lot of horses are mistreated. I have seen so many irresponsible people on social media riding small ponies, or in some cases, even foals. When the pony is freaking out and unable to move under the weight, the "owner" often reacts with, "Oh my gosh, so funny!"

Another huge problem in the horse industry is the 'Big Lick' discipline. In this practice, Tennessee Walking Horses are forced to wear heavy padded shoes and chains on their legs, altering their natural gait. The horses' legs have chemicals applied to them and are left to sit. Once they are taken off, it leaves a sort of mark. When the chain is put on, it applies pressure (and pain) to the cut, causing the horse to move its legs in an unnatural way.

Racing is another significant issue. Most (not all) racehorses are drugged, whipped, over-bred, and eventually killed. Drugging horses makes them "numb" so they can't feel pain. For example, if a horse gets a minor sprain during a race, the drugged horse doesn't feel the pain, keeps running, and might break its leg. If he was a front runner, the trailing horses would have no time to react, possibly leading to more injuries. Since... more

8 Human Trafficking

This should be above animal cruelty, at least. This is human cruelty, for crying out loud. I've seen a YouTube video that showed kids being trafficked, and it was worse than I could imagine. The kids were being pulled out of a small window on a vehicle like rag dolls, but at the same time, they were slow and stiff like a sloth, probably due to malnutrition and/or starvation, and they also seemed dehydrated. Also, they were dirty/dusty. Very cruel. Should be much higher on this list. If torture is number 3, then this should be near that because this is a specific kind of torture.

9 Child Abuse

Jesus. I hope you burn in hell if you abuse children. They are only young. They don't deserve abuse. You deserve to burn in hell for eternity if you do this, especially for fun.

You are the worst for doing that. They are little innocent kids. Just let them enjoy life. People sometimes abuse their kids for playing around and annoying them, but you did that at some point too. Come on now.

I think it should be on top. That is one of the reasons that some children have traumas and commit suicide.

10 Molestation

I know a YouTube user whose dad did it to his half-sister for NINE YEARS for being a loser stepchild, and thankfully he is spending the rest of his life in prison.

The Lord Jesus said those who harm the little ones would be better off throwing themselves in a lake of fire than to deal with me.

The Contenders
11 Arson

Not only is it destructive and deadly, but it also releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

Arson is horrible because burning property is bad.

I've seen a few examples with my own eyes. This is just really bad.

12 Bestiality

Actually, this is surprisingly legal in 13 American states. My faith in humanity has finally been flushed straight down.

Now that is one of the most disgusting things ever! I can't believe that would be legal anywhere.

Why would you want to, uh… do it with an animal? People make me sick…

13 Kidnapping

This should be above manslaughter. Manslaughter is an accident. This is intentional.

I have been afraid of kidnapping my whole life. It is definitely one of the worst.

I mean, it's human trafficking without a definitive buyer.

14 Cannibalism

Have you lost your mind, people? Why do you want to eat humans? You shouldn't even eat animals. You were never meant to. Why do you want to take a human corpse and do whatever you do? Please stop.

Did you know that people will also go to graves, dig the six feet of dirt, and see if the body is still there, and either eat the body or sell it on the black market?

Why do people do this? This should be illegal and punishable by the death penalty. Why would one person want to eat another?

15 Manslaughter

Both Voluntary and Involuntary manslaughter are commonly defined as an intentional killing in which the offender had no prior intent to kill, such as a killing that occurs in the "heat of passion." The circumstances leading to the killing must be the kind that would cause a reasonable person to become emotionally or mentally disturbed. Otherwise, the killing may be charged as a first-degree or second-degree murder.

16 Treason

Why would someone want to do this?

To the 9th circle of hell with you!

I also wanted to vote for presidential assassination, but I think it also fits here.

17 Acid Attacks

Honestly, this is the worst. People just throw acid on others just because they're jealous that the person rejected them... I really wish all the people who did this get the same thing. These attackers should be attacked with acid. Also, to all the people out there who have been attacked, I really hope they gain some confidence, because this just leaves a lifelong scar on them which cannot be erased. You must be very strong. Proud of you.

This is about as disgusting as a crime against one person can get. It's malicious, and it just angers me so much. It can completely ruin the person's life. Do people even read the whole list before voting? I can't believe homosexuality is even on this list and that it's higher than this.

18 Child Trafficking

Why would you just take a child and sell them to another person? It's messed up…

19 Adultery
20 Discrimination

This is one crime for which all offenders should go to jail. I cannot believe one of the reasons why kids hate school is because of homophobic kids.

I absolutely loathe how we even needed to create the word "discrimination." The very fact that people think that they are the superior race just because of the color difference of 1mm worth of skin is appalling.

This is just disgusting. You are treating people from another race differently because they are not white?

21 Regicide

It's not the King's fault that he was born into royal blood.

22 Presidential Assassination

That's why the Secret Service always protects the President, and those who post threats online will get caught, no matter where they hide.

23 Sexual Abuse

This is so awful. Why do people do this? Men should be nice to women. Women were created to help men and to do more. I am a man, but I don't understand why people do this rude stuff.

You know what? You are not brave. Instead, you are a coward and a loser. Why don't you find a partner to share your time with? Why do you want to forcefully abuse people? Go to Hell.

24 Drug Trafficking

Too many people are trying to get that green.

25 Child Molestation
