William J. Chambliss’s description of the Saints and the Roughnecks shows how the different social classes to facilitate the definition of some groups as deviants and others as not. In this classic study, the saints are a group of 8 white upper middle class boys on the pre-college track in Hanibal High School, who engage in truancy, drinking, wild driving, petty theft and vandalism, but managed to maintain a good image.

The roughnecks are a group of six lower-class boys who engage in lots of fighting and stealing, who are often arrested, and whose image in the community is terrible. In Chambliss 's view, the saints behavior had at least as much potential for community harm as the behavior of the roughnecks.

If people didn't judge someone because of their skin color, there wouldn't be so many shootings involved. When people see Jus they think he is a thug but what they don't know is that he got a full scholarship to Braselton Preparatory Academy. People should never judge someone just from their skin color because you don't know who that person is and what they have gone through. You just look at a person and automatically assume that they are bad when you know nothing about them. The people that have been judged because of their skin color now know that there will always be someone to bring you down but you have to keep your head high and not look
College athletes sometimes have criminal records, but the NCAA doesn’t check them. Viliseni Fauonuku, a college athlete was one of his coach’s favorite players, but he had been arrested for two felony accounts for robbery. Yet Viliseni was offered multiple scholarships by the universities, despite his violent background.

The West Memphis three murders are known all over the world. Three little boys brutally murdered, three high school boys wrongly accused, and sentenced to life behind bars, or death row. That’s all people know, they’re oblivious to the facts that show they weren’t the killers for the young boys. The accused boys were; Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley. At the time they were teenagers, but they were judged by the way they dressed in black, who they hung out with, and the music they listened to.

Constitutional Convention: The people that decided to correct the government’s problems were typically educated, well known, and rich. They had the characteristic quality of a leader. Respected, successful, and willing to fix things were other traits of the men that met at the Convention.
