      One of the starting points of a crime novel is the clear motivation of the crime revenge, passion, mental instability, out of use…. She rejected him and shoots him. Later he tells Sonya that he murdered the two women. In the meantime he befriends an alcoholic man, Marmeladov, whose daughter Sonya has been forced into prostitution to support the family.

      He uses this information to try to force Dunya to sleep with him. He is absent on his lectures and he gets more and more consumed by the ideas coming from the Western Europe into Russia. Isolated and antisocial, he has abandoned all attempts to support himself, and is brooding obsessively on a scheme he has devised to murder and rob an elderly pawn-broker. The novel also offers remarkable psychological portraits of the alcoholic Marmeladov and of the vicious amoralist Svidrigailov. Finally, Dostoevsky asked Katkov for help when others would not print his book.

      In the meantime he befriends an alcoholic man, Marmeladov, whose daughter Sonya has been forced into prostitution to support the family. Raskolnikov backs Lebezyatnikov by confidently identifying Luzhin's motive: a desire to avenge himself on Raskolnikov by defaming Sonya, in hopes of causing a rift with his family. Given a century of brutal, anti-black racism in the criminal justice system after the Civil War, these developments give rise to some obvious questions: When African-American officials finally gained a measure of control over the machinery of the law, why did mass incarceration happen on their watch? A part of a change in the story was that instead of the story being told by a character inside it, it was written as if many uninvolved people were writing it this was a form of writing that Dostoevsky made up. At the time, he did not think of Crime and Punishment as a novel.

He feels great sympathy with Sonya who had been forced into prostitution in order to support her family while her father drank constantly. Fearing a search, he hides the stolen items under a building block in an empty yard, noticing in humiliation that he hasn't even checked how much money is in the purse.

Some of the earliest options on the table ranged from decriminalization of marijuana — following the lead of white civil libertarians — to increased sentences. He looks for news about the murder, and seems almost to want to draw attention to his own part in it.

He denounces Luzhin and refuses to allow his sister to marry such a mean and nasty man. Sonya fearfully denies stealing the money, but Luzhin persists in his accusation and demands that someone search her.

About the same time, Svidrigailov, Dunya's former employer, arrives in town and looks up Raskolnikov and asks for a meeting with Dunya.

Students and editors have measured the number of feet between Raskolnikov's tiny room and the old pawnbroker's apartment and have discovered that Raskolnikov had made an accurate account of the distance — that is, he walked paces in order to reach the old pawnbroker's apartment to commit the murder.

When they return the next morning Raskolnikov has improved physically, but it becomes apparent that he is still mentally distracted and merely forcing himself to endure the meeting.
