They tell me crime pays, but I don't think so
Crime Does Not Pay was a slogan used by the FBI and was also a comic series in the 40’s/50’s.
Originally, the saying “Crime Pays” was likely said sarcastically by someone who felt that as long as you were smart and covered your bases you could commit crimes and get away w/ it w/o suffering the legal consequences. ‘Crime Pays’ is also a studio album by Cam'ron.
