The judge said that those prepared to .... in crime must be ready to suffer the consequences.
Would you please tell me why we can't use "involve" here?
Thanks in advance
I don't understand why you talk to your members in this way. It's a bit offensive. If you don't have time to answer such questions, you will be better off telling the truth. If I hadn't checked out the meaning of "involve", I wouldn't have asked from you.
Thanks for your thorough explanations, indeed!
People don't involve in crime. The may become involved in crime. Or involve themselves in crime. Or get involved with a crime.
But not "involve in crime."
The dictionary cited does state that it is often passive. I would say usually, if not always.
I guess you are not a teacher.
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
