In ordinary language, the term crime denotes an unlawful act punishable by a state. 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 or individuals 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.
America's Most Wanted, also known as A.M.W., was an American hip hop group from Oakland, California, made up of Tyrell "The Boss Man" Brewer, Charles "Chucksta" Mack and Chris "Mellow-D" Wilson. They were signed to Triad Records and Shot Records.
They came together in 1990 to release their first album, Criminals, which peaked at number 66 on the BillboardTop R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Five years later, by which time Mellow-D had left the group and been replaced by Lil' Big, the group released its second and final album, The Real Mobb, which failed to chart. In 1996, the group disbanded.
The English word "tobacco" originates from the Spanish and Portuguese word "tabaco". The precise origin of this word is disputed, but it is generally thought to have derived at least in part, from Taino, the Arawakan language of the Caribbean. In Taino, it was said to mean either a roll of tobacco leaves (according to Bartolomé de las Casas, 1552), or to tabago, a kind of Y-shaped pipe used for sniffing tobacco smoke (according to Oviedo; with the leaves themselves being referred to as cohiba).
