Where one becomes very successful and a Rhodes Scholar, and the other is heavily involved in the drug game and receives a life sentence in prison for serving a part in a murder of a former police officer.

Harris works and lives in the inner-city streets where the drug dealers overrun the city. Harris’ personal beliefs and sense of justice are a result of his life experiences with criminals and drug dealers. His ideas of justice and sense of right and wrong coupled with the social factors of drugs and crime in his community contribute to Harris’ unethical conduct. For instance, the temptations are always present in the circumstances when raiding any drug dealer activity. Drug dealers possess a lot of money and drugs, such as the Training Day movie, in which money and drugs influence Harris, so he acts criminalized.
The American crime film “The Godfather,” created in 1972, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and produced by Albert S. Ruddy, greatly depicts the formation of gangs and gang violence as well as the American immigration experience. Don Vito Corleone plays an integral part in the movie as the mafia boss. He is well respected in the community, always dressed in his fine suits as he handles many favors on behalf of his friends. Though before he immigrated to America and gained his title as the mafia boss he was a poor young boy in Sicily. The reason in which many foreigners wish to immigrate to America is simple.
Founded by Karl Marx, conflict theory conjectures that social order is sustained through wealth and power and constant class conflict (subduing the poor by keeping them away from the limited resources). The resulting conflict and inequalities between the classes result in crime, according to Marx. Social conflict theorists use the criminal justice system to support their argument.

OJ Simpson was able to get off for the murder of Nicole Brown (the court said “he didn’t do it,” but he was able to get off because of his wealth and famous lawyers).
This leads to the kids not wanted to do better in terms of attending school, obtaining a good paying job, and avoiding crime. As shown in the article, the second generation offspring eventually grew up assimilating the crooked ways of living, such as I’ve seen from some of my acquaintances that I watched slowly succumb to detrimental side of assimilation. Just as my friends and I made pacts to strive to success, they made pacts to strive to failure. Failure as in dropping out and turning to drug dealers, or getting on the wrong side of the law which for some, ended in death. The way I see it, the more positive guidance a child has growing up, especially at the delinquency age of 11-17, the more likely their chances of swaying away from crime increases, and vice

He has a very low differentiation level, as he concaves from the pressure of trying to impress Baba. He lies to impress Baba, he hurts his friend trying impress, and he loses himself in the process. He has no sense of morality, and makes his decision based on a reaction instead of making a rational decision. After walking down the alley and seeing his friend Hassan pinned down by Assef and two other boys, Amir decides to run, “I actually aspired to cowardice, because the alternative, the real reason I was running, was that Assef was right: Nothing was free in this world.
