Who’s to Blame?
This week you again read and reflect on the “Who’s to Blame” boxes in each chapter, considering crime and its causes against the backdrop of the social problems and social responsibility perspectives and, thus, connecting theory and reality. The vignettes you consider this week provide examples of public order, drug, technology, and global/terrorism crimes and criminals. Again, you are invited to listen and watch for crimes of this type in the world this week and to think about whether society or the individual seems more responsible in each instance.
To prepare for this Discussion:
• Review the assigned reading in Chapters 13, 14, and 15 of your course text, Criminology Today.
• Review the “Who’s to Blame—The Individual or Society?” vignettes in Chapters 13, 14, and 15 of your course text, Criminology Today.
• Review the “Think about it” questions in each “ Who’s to Blame?” box and consider how you would answer them.
• Consider whom you believe to be more responsible for the crime in each vignette—the individual or society—and why.
• Select one of the vignettes to use for this Discussion.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 3 the answers to the questions for the vignette you selected. Also, briefly explain whether you think the individual or society is more to blame for the crime portrayed and why.
