Please select one of the following prompts to discuss.
1. How do sociological theories differ from positivist theories and classical criminology? How do they build on each other?
2. Your text offers many examples of programs/policies that have been implemented based upon sociological theories. Research one and report on it. In your post, be sure to identify the variables that led to the program’s creation and how those variables are addressed by the program’s operations.
3. Right-wing/conservative tend to favor classical criminology whereas left-wing/liberal tend to favor sociological approaches. How does this information explain different proposals to control crime and offending in the US? What are crime control policies that have been enacted which would correspond to each view? What is the relationship between politics and criminal justice policy? Can theory resolve the tension between the two groups?
I will be attaching the book because the text should be related to chapter 7.

answer the following question: A series of changes to official perceptions of crime, criminological discourse, modes of governmental action, and the structure and function of criminal justice agencies indicate that crime control has changed (Garland, 1996). Attempts to enhance security increasingly emphasize crime’s inevitability and address non-state actors in prevention activities; at the same time, there is a continued focus on strong state intervention despite little evidence that laws and punishment effectively prevent or control crime. Young argues that bulimia is a late modern social condition that results from the existence and intersection of highly contradictory processes (in Brotherton & Naegler, 2014). Individuals experience “pushes” and “pulls”, which can result in frustration, disaffection, and dehumanization (Brotherton & Naegler, 2014; Mythen, Walklate & Khan, 2009). “Prepressive” tactics are used against “risky” populations as they are believed to be the best mechanisms to pre-empt crime and govern the unknowable (Pleysier, 2015). Discuss the possibility that prevention tactics in the pursuit of security both reflect and reinforce the very social conditions that ultimately create crime and insecurity.
