There have been different meanings of criminal target in the composition of crime offenses in China under different circumstances. It means the conduct of the criminal objects sometimes, and other times it has been used as the targets of the offensive action. So it has led to the confusion in the study of criminal targets. To solve the problem, we should follow the thinking that the two meanings of the concept should be separated. The former means the criminal targets, the latter should be generalized into the concept means the objects of offensive action. The two concepts have close connections, but the differences between them are obvious too. They have different roles and positions in the composition of crime offenses, and should not be mixed and replaced with each other.
