What does "third-degree" mean here? Thanks!
--A third degree crime is less serious than murder, burglary, or other felonies.
-- Third degree is also used in medical terms: for eg: third degree burn means the highest level of burn.
-- In police terms, third degree torture means an intensive questioning or rough treatment in order to get a confession.
