Kalau tulis dalam omputeh cemana pulak?  Lain ke tidak?

What is the definition of White-Collar Crime?
Within the field of criminology, white-collar crime has been defined by Edwin Sutherland as "a crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation" (1939). Sutherland was a proponent of Symbolic Interactionism, and believed that criminal behavior was learned from interpersonal interaction with others. White-collar crime, therefore, overlaps with corporate crime because the opportunity for fraud, bribery, insider trading, embezzlement, computer crime, copyright infringement, money laundering, identity theft, and forgery are more available to white-collar employees.

The Free Dictionary by Farlex even offer historical background lagi.  And I am in awe.  Nemind.  I sharing is caring witchu okei.

Historical background: The term white-collar crime only dates back to 1939. Professor Edwin Hardin Sutherland was the first to coin the term, and hypothesize white-collar criminals attributed different characteristics and motives than typical street criminals. Mr. Sutherland originally presented his theory in an address to the American Sociological Society in attempt to study two fields, crime and high society, which had no previous empirical correlation. He defined his idea as "crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation" (Sutherland, 1939). Many denote the invention of Sutherland's idiom to the explosion of U.S business in the years following the Great Depression. Sutherland noted that in his time, "less than two percent of the persons committed to prisons in a year belong to the upper-class." His goal was to prove a relation between money, social status, and likelihood of going to jail for a white-collar crime, compared to more visible, typical crimes. Although the percentage is a bit higher today, numbers still show a large majority of those in jail are poor, "blue-collar" criminals, despite efforts to crack down on corporate crime.

Other fiscal laws were passed in the years prior to Sutherland's studies including antitrust laws in the 1920's, and social welfare laws in the 1930's. After the Depression, people went to great lengths to rebuild their financial security, and it is theorized this led many hard workers, who felt they were underpaid, to take advantage of their positions.

Much of Sutherland's work was to separate and define the differences in blue collar street crimes, such as arson, burglary, theft, assault, rape and vandalism, which are often blamed on psychological, associational, and structural factors. Instead, white-collar criminals are opportunists, who over time learn they can take advantage of their circumstances to accumulate financial gain. They are educated, intelligent, affluent, confident individuals, who were qualified enough to get a job which allows them the unmonitored access to often large sums of money. Many also use their intelligence to con their victims into believing and trusting in their credentials. Many do not start out as criminals, and in many cases never see themselves as such.[1]

Terpesona tak?  Mungkin sebab aku jarang nak surf for dictionary kut yang aku tak pernah bump into one that offers historical of the thing I was looking for.

So the question is now, what is White Collar to me?
White Collar is a USA Network television series created by Jeff Eastin, starring Matt Bomer as con-man Neal Caffrey and Tim DeKay as Special Agent Peter Burke. It premiered on October 23, 2009. In December 2009, White Collar was renewed for a second season that began on July 13, 2010. On September 27, 2010, the USA Network renewed White Collar for a third season with 16 new episodes, which premiered on June 7, 2011.[1]

Neal Caffrey, a con-man, forger and thief, is captured after a three-year game of cat and mouse with the FBI. With four months left while serving a four-year sentence,[2] he escapes from a maximum-security federal prison to find Kate, his ex-girlfriend. Peter Burke, the FBI agent who initially captured Caffrey, finds him and returns Caffrey to prison. This time, Caffrey gives Burke information about evidence in another case; however, this information comes with a price: Burke must have a meeting with Caffrey. At this meeting, Caffrey proposes a deal: he will help Burke catch other criminals as part of a work-release program. Burke agrees, after some hesitation. Through the successful apprehending of several white-collar criminals, Caffrey has proven to Burke that he will help him, and that he will not try to escape again. This begins an unconventional but successful partnership.

*Hik hik hik* 

Amacam?  Gatal tak?  Haha.  Gatal gila...  Tapi ada aku kesah?  Cerita dia bess gila k...  It's constantly changing of characters dan adegan-adegan that doesn't need bo0bies or exposure of so much skin to sell the show.  Kelakar, catchy dan tidak memeningkan macam cerita 24.  Itu cerita 24, kalo ko tak tengok the entire season dengan sekali duduk, memanglah ko tak paham hujung pangkal cerita.  Dah lah laju penuh dengan saat genting je.  Hish.  [Tak pasaaaal...]  Lagi pun ai dah penat tengok Keifer Sutherland berpeluh sambey pegang pistol.  Matt Bomer tak payah pegang pun.  Dia paling kuat pun pegang pen je.  Pen ngan file. 

Dan dan dan...  Neal Caffrey Matt Bomer is sooo....  *sighs with batting of eyelashes*

The Libra Snake kept his family life so under wraps that it was only made known recently that he has 3 children [Oh aku teruk ke sampai itu pun nak tau?  He he.  Ye.  Bikos got one statement where he refuses to say that he would easily just not answer is his se&ual orientation.  Haha.  Even to have bumped into that about people proding to know about his orientation pun dah membuatkan aku ternganga abes!]:

In an interview published in the January 2010 issue of Details, when asked about media reports regarding his sexual orientation, Bomer stated, "I don't care about that at all. I'm completely happy and fulfilled in my personal life."[6] He declined to elaborate further, stating, "I have a network and a show riding on my shoulders," referring to his starring role on USA's White Collar.[6]

On March 18, 2011, when co-hosting Today, Bomer told his co-host, Hoda Kotb, that he has three children, Kit, Walker, and Henry.[

I wasn't lying to you, was I?  Aku siap highlight kaler kunin tuuuu.... *mulut juih*

Well, anyway...  He's just so stylish, I wonder how he can look so good and clean in suits, and in his Neal Caffrey characters...  Just nice.  Just perfect for the job. [But eh, how come at the back of my head come trailing, "I can only think of John Stamos but he may be a bit old for the character"?  Ai teruk, izit?]

Seriously, just look at him...


Would you agree that Matt Bomer doesn't look 34 [born October 11th, 1977]?  And to know he has got three children is a pleasant surprise.  Just like when I found out Simon Baker is also a happily married man being father of three too. 

Doesn't really matter.  I like him and I sooo enjoy White Collar.  Great for Tiffany too.  Great story, great cast and great show!

PS:  I was so trying to figure out how come 'Sara Elis' was so familiar.  Rupanya dia dulu rambut kinting main cerita One Tree Hill yang dia jadi Payton Sawyer tu. 

PPS: Willie Garson is Mozzie's real name?  Are you kidding me??  Tak matching langsung nama tu dengan muka dia!
