Fellow Hoodlums
A HOODLUM is a thug , usually in a group of misfits who are associated with crime or theft. The earliest reference to the word hoodlum was in the December 14, 1866 San Francisco Daily Evening Bulletin, after the Hoodlum Band was arrested on December 13, 1866. Members of the gang were sentenced to the Industrial School for stealing clothes. The gang used many keys to enter hotel rooms and boarding houses. On December 14, 1866, Lazarus Moses was arrested for selling clothes stolen by the Hoodlum Band. Mr. Moses was fined $300. Mr. Moses' nickname was Fagin . The public read about the acts of the Hoodlum Band, and the word hoodlum became a synonym for a young thug. An article in the New York Times of July 26, 1877 included this: "… People who sack Chinese houses and stone Chinamen are not workingmen. San Francisco calls them ‘hoodlums,’ a term which includes everything that is base and mean

Criminal
In ordinary language, a CRIME is an unlawful act punishable by a state or other authority. The term "crime" does not, in modern criminal law , have any simple and universally accepted definition, though statutory definitions have been provided for certain purposes. The most popular view is that crime is a category created by law ; in other words, something is a crime if declared as such by the relevant and applicable law. One proposed definition is that a crime or OFFENCE (or CRIMINAL OFFENCE) is an act harmful not only to some individual but also to a community, society or the state ("a public wrong "). Such acts are forbidden and punishable by law. The notion that acts such as murder , rape and theft are to be prohibited exists worldwide. What precisely is a criminal offence is defined by criminal law of each country . While many have a catalogue of crimes called the criminal code , in some common law countries no such comprehensive statute exists
