Types of crimes in GIFs for ESL students


One of the core topics for IELTS is crime and justice. It is a tricky area as there are a lot of words that need to be learnt. So what you will find here is not just a list of crime words but a selection of funny GIFs, definitions of different types of crimes with example sentences (translated into Russian because my blog is created mainly for Russian learners of English).

I want to notice that there aren't images here related to cruel crimes (for example murder, manslaughter, assassination and so on) for obvious reasons. For other types of crimes I simply couldn't find appropriate pictures.
