Abstract

With the development of human civilization and democracy, the subject of crime has developed from individuals to groups, from people to enterprises. As a vital social participant, the possibility of state crime is often ignored. It is worth noting that once the state commits crimes, the scope of social influence and harms are far beyond the mainstream individual crimes. Therefore, recently, state crime has also become an important research object of global crime and insecurity. Unfortunately, criminological analysis is too conservative to analyze it, while zemiology, which uses a broader social harm analysis structure, makes up for its deficiency. This paper will take the state crimes in Hurricane Katrina 2005 as the example, study it through Criminology and Zemiology, specifically compare the two approaches, and then summarize the advanced feature in Zemiology, so as to provide a fresh and positive direction for the research of global crime and insecurity.
