Human intelligence has been known to create wonders in science, architecture, information technology, and the ease with which global business operations are conducted from the comfort of home. However, it is pathetic to realize that the same intelligence of a human is being increasingly abused to commit burglaries, murders, and homicides. The future of crime looks frightening because of the possession of sophisticated technology and equipments by the criminals.
The criminals of the future shall use computer technology to conduct their global criminal activities (Sharp, 2007). The criminals shall communicate in coded language and send their messages through email and messenger system. Besides, these people would be able to perform electronic financial transactions and transfer money from one country to another. Since the crime in the future shall also become global along with other business activities, transnational crime will increase considerably (Knight, 2009).
There will be international gangs who shall have influence on political leaders and bureaucrats. Corruption will become deep-rooted, and legislature as well as judiciary functions of the state will face the challenge to restore justice to the society. Since the crime in the future shall become highly organized and operated through computer technology, the chief criminals would be in a country different from the target country. Human intelligence will be used for drug trafficking and for committing ghastly criminal activities.
It seems that the crime in the future shall lead to gang wars and civil wars in the countries. In the materialistic world, the greed for money would make the officials corrupt, and the criminals would have access to nuclear weapons and other chemical weapons. Cyber crime shall pose the biggest threat as human intelligence would be abused to cheat people of their money and property. In the name of security, people would freely use guns to commit homicide.
Human intelligence shall cause massive destruction to property and lives throughout the world. References Knight, P. (2009).
