Victims of Organizational Crimes

Organizational crime. on the other hand, can have more of an impact than violent crimes. (Weisburd, 2001)The victim of a violent crime can recuperate, where as the victim of organizational crime can have immeasurable impact that can destroy one’s home, family, and even life.
