Physical violence isn't the only bad thing a person can do. Embezzling can ruin people's lives by stealing their retirement funds or employment. Is that ok just because no ones physical person was directly harmed? Do you think that people's relationships and lives can't be devastated by fraud? What about the mechanic that has his tools stolen? Is he not hurt grievously by losing his means to provide for himself and his family? Non-violent crimes absolutely can and do hurt people.
