I am interested in this particular theory because it truly is an interesting theory. And i think that this theory is true or can be applied to a lot of criminals. Most criminal acts are done because people need to commit the crime to stay on the level they are at this could mean robbing so they can stay afloat, or committing some sort of embezzlement to try and make more money for that persons family or just simply because that particular person wants more money. And then there are those who do it for the thrill. I think these types of people can be broken down into different categories.
Instead of that we can help them to become better persons and to become a good member of society. People are able to change, no matter how bad it’s that they have done. As human beings, we all make mistakes and that is something that we have to consider. Teens are the future, we should help them out in this particular situation. We have a serious problem, many juveniles, who have committed crimes, such as robbery, murder etc.
Littering, speeding, pollution and every other ‘small’ law is at most a gateway to laws considered ‘bigger’ in aspects of the crime and its punishment when broken. Those who are not scofflaws and actually take in consideration to our society, can detect a true scofflaw and react towards their actions in a violent manner. When pollution, be it noise or waste, is committed around a ‘good’ citizen, he or she usually reacts in a violent tone to show that they do not condone the breaking of the small law. And the one who committed the crime, which in this case is pollution, would react back at an equal tone, causing something worse than pollution. The breaking of these ‘small’ laws is not to be taken lightly by justice and should have its consequences.
The perpetrators beat, tied up, confinement, mutilation and other means which abused human rights to hurt and destroy family members’ physical, mental, and other aspects. This kind of abuse is only for the perpetrator to release the negativity. Domestic violence victims have a direct effect on the body, so the victim may suffer physical or mental harm even the health and dignity will
Why Crime Calls So Much Trouble Crime goes in-depth with not only discussing crime, but carefully depicting and deciphering crimes or been committed across the United States. These authors demonstrate the significance of the crime, why crimes are committed and what kind of justice is acted out with certain crimes. The reason why this topic should be important for readers is because we all know that crime is committed everywhere, so it is very vital that we as people should stop it. Crime has become a big problem in our society which has ways of hurting the community causing more violence. Now more than ever children are not only committing crimes, but they are susceptible to crime as well.
Eventually, society shifted attitudes by their motto, “tough on crime” which led to transferring more frequently more juveniles to adult courts. The results of these policies have shown the recidivism rates for juveniles have increased when prosecuted in adult court versus juvenile court. Society has failed the system. Because of this failure, reforms needed to quickly be put in place so that we change the importance back on the best interests of the youth. Focusing on the youth instead of the crime with resources for the purpose of equipping them to succeed will help our juveniles reenter society.
Police are then put into situations where a White officer is against a Black man or vice versa. Along with this, police use of deadly force is conducted with the daily work environment for police officers put them on the front line for potential harm and vulnerable situations (Ross, 2015, p. 244). Violence which is sometimes the only necessary means for police, is said to be “situational in nature” (Parent, 1998). This violence which is situational in nature can be revolved around the personality, stress and danger that a policeman are put into. With this in mind, it can be a controversial topic when it comes to explaining that police officers are put into certain situations needing them to act within seconds.
Today crime is a frequent occurrence seen and heard everywhere. It is an central part of the risks in everyday life. Experts state that crime is associated with harm and violence; harm to individuals, destruction of property, and the denial of respect to people and institutions. Pressing problems of a social and individual nature exist in understanding crime. Though there is a lack of agreement on the most basic question, namely what crime is, everyone agrees that whatever act is against the welfare of the humanity is crime.
My reflection after reading Chapter 12 is that I form the idea that when people in a society are not educated it increases the risks of crime. Crime is defined as any act that is against the law. The Court system is responsible for deciding which crimes should be considered worth punishing for. As we look at the two different types of crimes such as mala in se and mala prohibita. Mala in se is considered to be “inherently evil” meaning such as robbery, murder, rape, etc that people in society have decided that should be banned due to its evil inhuman nature.
Crime is defined as an act that violates the constitution such as theft, assault, drugs/alcohol offense, curfew violations, and murder. Despite being punishable by law, many people still commit these crimes including teenagers. Teenagers should be punished for their crimes because they have the capability of recognizing their responsibility as a good citizen in the society. They are old enough to know the consequences of every action they make. According to The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), teenagers are more likely to commit crimes compared to adults.
