Developing a Crime Theory and Applying It to American Cases

Pick one of the crime theories you agree with most or come up with your own.

Feel free to combine elements from multiple crime theories or propose a completely new theory on the causation of crime. Detail the elements of your theory and what leads you to this conclusion. Draw on the application of the theory. How can this theory be used to decrease crime? Focus on punishment, laws, government intervention, societal intervention, and troubleshooting. Is there anything about your theory that doesn’t make sense? Why? Are there explanations? Does this theory apply to the whole world or just the US? What happens when you apply it to both?
