Definitions for TrueValueMetrics
Criminal behavior is an anti-social activity ans has a very negative impact on quality of life. Society may have decided that a behavior is anti-social and has given it a criminal status ... or may tolerate certain behavior and not make it criminal while it is still anti-social.
TVM is more concerned about the metric of impact on society than the specific status in law. Activities that benefit society and improve quality of life are positive and add to the value of the community, while those that detract from quality of life detract from the community.
In TVM standard values apply to the build up of the quantification of the impact of criminal behavior. Criminality that results in death has the same value quantification process applied as there is for death from disease. This includes the emotional component associated with loss of life. In the case of criminal death there are also measures associated with the performance of the police and security organizations.
