theories of crime

Is justice just? Sometimes, what is legal is not always perceived by the public as “justice.” Many laws define criminal acts and the punishment that will be meted out in the event of a criminal offense. However, there sometimes seems to be a disconnect between what actions are considered criminal in nature and who gets charged for it. Sometimes, people committing the same criminal acts receive different treatments even though they are tried under the same courts of law.

Based on the premise that people committing the same criminal acts receive different treatments, read the articles below and answer the questions that follow.

Consider your readings so far and answer the following questions.

  • How do you balance the ideals and principles set forth in the Constitution with the realities discussed in the articles presented to you?

  • Is justice applied fairly when crime control is taken into perspective? Why or why not?
