Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
As any change must begin somewhere, it is the single individual who will experience it and carry it through. The change must indeed begin with an individual; it might be any one of us. Nobody can afford to look round and to wait for somebody else to do what he is loath to do himself. – Carl G. Jung (Man and His Symbols), 1964
A few nights ago, I had some free time to surf the internet in search of upcoming Crime Divas and interesting articles. In the midst of my search, I became overwhelmed at how many articles were popping up with very little effort on my part to locate them. This really bothered me. I could feel my blood pressure rising as my heart beat faster and my anxiety had me shaking my head. I was feeling this way, because, though I have just started on this journey of exposing this epic situation of professional female white-collar crimes, the realization that I have just scratched the tip of this iceberg and this profound knowledge that I have my work cut out for me, if I am going to make the impact I desire with this social issue, was blowing me away.
The more I read the more disturbed I became at what’s happening with us women. I shook my head more as I realized that the selected Crime Divas were only the ‘bigger stories’, but there were many more stories of females out there with greed issues and sadly it was evidence by the many arrests that were occurring. Though the money amounts for this group of females are far less than that of the profiled Crime Divas the issue of ‘personal integrity’ and societal effects must be addressed not only through dialogue, but action.
People are watching more television programs/sitcoms about crime centered issues than ever before. We only see the short strips through a few programs such as: American Greed and Criminal Mind, but where is the conversation to this social issue. The lack of dialogue occurring has added fuel to my desire to fire this conversation up and to get it moving like a bushfire.
With that said, I am going to introduce some real conversations from individuals who have been affected by these white-collar crimes; both victims and offenders. I would like for you to join the conversation also, by leaving your comments . . . . Just imagine our country trending about stopping white-collar crime.
Again, I want to re-affirm the position of this blog site. It is not about belittling, gossiping, or shaming any of these individuals. What has happened has happen and I am not here to judge. Their stories are featured only for utilizing the crime as an example of what is occurring in our society and to come to an understanding of why . . . to look deeper into the issue – that it is only greed, to share both sides of victim/offender stories, to show the effects these crimes have on the offender, victim and society and to help prevent and if possible put an end to white-collar crime. Yes, it is an epic mission and the answer is not prison, because prison is after the fact. We want to get ahead of the issue and make a difference.
I invite you to visit this site often and participate by leaving your comments on a post or a situation that you have heard about. Your comments may just be the one that helps make a difference.
The mission of this site is to prevent professional, educated, and career-minded females from committing white-collar crimes; to educate, and confabulate with others who have an interest in this epic situation and who has a desire to make a difference.
