[ORDER SOLUTION] Function of Environment and Socialization
Week 5 Review Questions These are the Week Five Review Questions; these are taken from Chapters 9 and 10. You only need to answer the questions below. Chapter 9 Do you consider yourself to have social capital? If so, what form does it take? Do you believe it is a latent trait that makes a person crime prone, or is crime a function of environment and socialization? Do you agree with Loebers multiple pathways model? Do you know people who have traveled down those paths? Do people really change, or do they stay the same but appear to be different because their life circumstances have changed? Chapter 10 Should different types of rape receive different legal sanctions? For example, should someone who rapes a stranger be punished more severely than someone who is convicted of marital rape or date rape? If your answer is yes, do you also think that someone who kills a stranger should be more severely punished than someone who kills his wife or girlfriend? There have been significant changes in rape laws regarding issues such as corroboration and shield laws. What other measures would you take to protect the victims of rape when they are forced to testify in court? Should the names of rape victims be published in the press? Do they deserve more protection than those accused of rape? Should hate crimes be punished more severely than crimes motivated by greed, anger, or revenge? Why should crimes be distinguished by the motivations of the perpetrator? Is hate a more heinous motivation than revenge? Do you believe that murder is an interactive event? If so, does that amount to blaming the victim? If there is a murder transaction, should we not consider rape, domestic assault, and so forth as transactions?
