Typologies of Crime


Chapter 10 in your textbook discusses several violent crimes and crime typologies related to them. Considering what you have learned here, and drawing on information learned in previous chapters, such as Chapter 4 which discusses Rational Choice Theory and several aspects of crimes and the offenders who commit various types of crimes, write a well-constructed, one page essay (500+ words) that discusses one type of crime and the type of criminals who commit them. Your essay should address:



路           The type of crime being discussed (i.e. homicide, burglary, etc.)

路           The possible reasoning the offender has for committing the crime

路           How the crime is structured (how victims, location, etc. are selected)

路           What efforts could be made in order to deter these crimes from happening

(NOTE: A 鈥渨ell-constructed鈥 essay will be in complete sentences and paragraphs. It will be structured to include an introduction, body, and conclusion. While APA references and citations are not required for this course, they are strongly suggested since they will be required in future courses. Also, you must at least attempt to provide citation and reference information for any specific information that you use that is not your own thoughts in order to avoid plagiarism).
