The discussion is a 2 part question: 1) Based on your personal knowledge, perception, and experience, describe the typical criminal. 2) Using your response to question #1, which of the 4 goals of crime control do you believe would be the best and most successful approach – and why? This is a complex issue that will require more than a sentence of 2 to answer. You must show that you read and understood the text by citing the text in regards to the goals. You will then apply your academic knowledge to your description of the typical criminal to show how and why this goal would be successful at crime control. Answer the following 5 questions using the information that is in Chapter 1 of the textbook. Number your work in the same order that the questions appear. The questions are: 1 Explain how the 3-strikes laws are both crime control and crime prevention. 2 Criminal behavior can be placed into 4 categories. They are: 3 Explain what is meant by the “opportunity costs of crime?” 4 Explain the difference between crime displacement and crime diffusion. 5 What is the “victimization paradox?”
