Is stealing from rich people considered to be a crime or social justice?

Update:

Do rich people even have a right to call the police and complain.

    Stealing from the rich when you are poor is a crime.

    Stealing from the poor when you are rich is capitalism.

    Of course its a crime. Someone works 12 hours a day 6 days a week for 40 years to be able live comfortable and you think you have a right to steal from them just because you don't have as much as they do?

    YOU have two choices, your victim can call the police and you go to prison after you rob them or your victim can practice their 2nd amendment rights. I am fine with either of those.

    Seems like you're conflating morality with legality. Seems like you're advocating a form of communism.

    Source(s): This all depends on where on the social totem pole you are.

    There is no point in trying to steal from poor people.  They have nothing.

    it's a crime.  stealing is prohibited, no matter who it is from, in the Bible.  Ten Commandments, remember?

    Poor people are MUCH more likely to be the victims of theft than rich people. What can you conclude from this undeniable fact?

    Depends on whether you believe in capitalism I suppose.
