Well, I think stress does lead to crime because if someone is mad, they probably need to take it out on someone.

Everybody has the 'stuff' it takes to be a criminal in them, it just takes a certain environment to bring it beyond their reason. the problem is not the environment, but the strength of their reason (their will) People who commit crimes don't think straight. people who are stressed also commonly don't think straight. i guess it follows that for certain people, this lack of reason could lead to some crime.

so what then, are we going to make stress illegal? this is like the no-bullying campaigns.. bullying is no new phenom, but people think that stopping bullying will stop crimes like columbine, and taber alberta, and others... no, people have been dealing with teasing for decades and decades. The problem isn't what happens TO you (e.g. stress, bullying) the problem is what happens IN you (i.e. emotions override your logic)

but obviously what happens TO you will affect what happens IN you, so we should still try to stop it.

plus all the other problems with bullying... it would be like letting people commit crimes and saying lets not try to stop it becuase it doesn't stop worse crimes...

Of course stress can be a factor in poor decision making which is what a criminal uses when deciding to commit a crime.
Crime itself causes stress also.
Even if stress is a factor in crime. It is to be overcome by the individual so as to make the right decision.
Any excuse a criminal gives for commiting his crime is simply an excuse. Stress not being any more acceptable than any other.

While stress may be a factor in committing a crime, it should not be used as a reason for giving a lighter sentence.
