The due process model is seen to focus on the suspect whereas the crime control model focuses on the society. This paper analyzes these two models and based on the rate of crime in the society, makes recommendations as to which is the best model in criminal justice. The principle in law that one is innocent until proven guilty has created much discourse. There are those who feel that the moment that one is arrested, there is reasonable belief that they committed the crime. However, there are those who feel that just as the principle states, one is, and should be taken as a victim and the outcome could be either way: guilty or not guilty.
After revising the theory he come up into General strain theory of crime and builds its foundation in 1992. General strain theory argues that frustrations and anger leads someone to deviance and may result into committing a crime (Agnew, 1992). GST defines strains as negative life events and conditions which are commonly disliked by the people who experience it or negative experiences of a person in a given group (Agnew, 1992; 2001; 2006). Strain is often classified in two distinct types, the Objective Strain and the Subjective Strain. Objective
With reference with anger management, according to Breslin (2005) a domestic dispute has previously been examined with an interest in reoffender as it pertains to programs such as anger management. During this investigation, persons that had been convicted of such crimes; domestic violence crimes; and sentenced based on these charges, are recognized as being persons who indicated and completed programs such as anger management, which still triggered offenders to relapse. Things such as age, criminal history, and gender were taken into account, statistics were collected and it disclosed that persons who has prior domestic violence history are more prone to backsliding, which caused persons to reoffend. Corresponding with Buş (2009) it
(Young, 1981). Classicism Enhancing informational knowledge is the purpose of its punishment, which allows people to conduct rational decision. Therefore, the proportional penalty is suggested to launch when they devoted violation that harms the society, which promoted equality that offenders need to be aware of. Positivism Positivist focused on the background of the criminal, who believed people committed crime because of the environment influence. Treatment is a preferable than punishment to offenders(Young, 1981).
Compare and contrast modeling theory with attachment theory. How do each of these perspectives explain aggressive and/or criminal behavior? Which of these two explanations do you find more compelling? Justify your selection. Modeling theory was developed by Albert Bandura and is used by criminologist when violent acts occur to sometimes explain the reason behind those acts.
To begin with, criminologist work with several reasons, concepts and theories that include several surveys or researches. These methods imply in several cases such as serial killers, sexual assaults and crimes in general. In Paul Bernardo’s case, a serial killer/rapist would be useful as an example that criminologist could use towards using different concepts and theories such as the attachment theory. Criminologists who study this theories, well know a right nor wrong theory exist, in contrast, whichever fits and it’s been well researched becomes considered to be useful. The attachment theory accommodates to figure out the how and why Paul Bernardo committed those crimes.
Perhaps you can be born with psychologically criminal instincts and then life events further your tendencies making you act in more criminalist. This paper will display how a criminal can be born but molded and persuaded by the society to cultivate the criminal mannerisms making them an actual criminal. While undeniable, what should only be seen as an inclination of crime rather than the actual cause of crime itself are the theories of genetic influences (Raine. A. 1993 pg 50).
The target can be a person or an object, whose place or occasion puts it at more or less risk of culprit attackers. These attackers influenced a target risk elements called VIVA, which is the value, inertia, visibility and access. In contrast to theories of criminality, which are centred on the figure of the criminal and the psychological, biological, or social factors that motivated the criminal act, the focus of routine activity is the study of crime as an outcome, feature its relation to space and time and feature its ecological nature and the implications thereof (Mirὀ F., 2014). (Cohen and Felson (1979) “Social change and crime rate trends: A routine activity
Individuals tend to choose friends with whom they share the same interests and personalities. Antisocial individuals, outcasts and delinquents will be found together and will therefore motivate and influence each other into violent or criminal behaviour. In social learning theory Albert Bandura (1977) states that behaviour is learned from the environment through the process of observational learning. A normal offender will find a crime rewarding because he has learnt to commit a crime from observing people he models. These individuals are exposed to high levels of aggression and other factors portrayed by models that range from family, members of the community and neighbours, friends, celebrities and characters from movies and books.
Introduction Victimology is the study of the role of the victims in criminal offences and the psychological effects these offences have on the victim and their experiences; it has been further stated to be the state of mind which originates from the very real or very imagined state of victimization that can either glorify or indulge the state of being a victim. David Rathband was a unique case example of how victimisation can have detrimental affects for the life of the victim after the initial interaction between the criminal and the victim. While not unheard of in other police cases of interaction with criminals, Rathband was blinded, and in the twenty months that followed between the incident and his death, slowly spiralled from recovery to demise.
