What is Crime?
Let's investigate a Crime!
A drug offense refers to the possession, use, sale or furnishing of any drug or intoxicating substance that is prohibited by law.

Crime Vs. Deviance


Crime is different from deviance.
Deviance is an action that society deems out of the norm, yet is viewed not serious enough to be punishable by law. Therefore, all crime is deviant but not all deviant actions can be a crime.
For example, stealing is viewed as a criminal action while picking your nose in public is viewed as a deviant action.

Another Example:

Another Example of Crime Versus Deviance

Practice Mode
let's Practice together!
A crime is an act that breaks a law that relates to how to behave in society. The harm caused by the act is seen to be against society as a whole, not just a specific person.

Can you name some types of Crime?

A crime against property includes unlawfully taking or attempting to take someone’s property from them or willfully damaging another person’s property.
Property crimes may or may not involve violence against a person. Some examples include:
• theft, for example, stealing someone’s car or stealing something from a vehicle;
• having stolen property or being dishonest with someone to gain something illegally (fraud);
• breaking and entering into someone’s home or breaking someone’s windows.

Other Consequences of Crime
The Chronic Violent Drug Syndrome
• Drug Trafficking creates fear and panic among the public and empowering the drug boys in turf wars.
• Drugs leaves you cognitively impaired and gives difficulty to holding down a job.
• marijuana in especially in children destroys educational potential since the brain is not fully developed until the mid-twenties.
• Guns and drugs usually go together

Di socialization
• Young men who murder obtain stripes in the Hood giving them the reputation of being "bad boys" who are to be feared.
• People in the community live in fear and feel unsafe. More people are talking more about self protection and revenge.
• Property is not respected. "With a gun what is yours is mine."
• Diminished or poor work ethic. It appears that some young men in particular have lost the mind to work.
• There is little motivation for education in the home.


• when people are angry they talked about outing (killing), poisoning and suicide.
• Anger causes the heart rate to increase, blood pressure to rise and pulse to increase.
• If a person cannot express, "I am angry"; "I am hurt", they will act it out

Personal Rationale
As a teacher I take reading comprehension very seriously. I know from personal experiences that one cannot understand a reading selection, be it a passage, an article or a story if you do not understand or know the meaning of all of the words in the reading selection.

Being able to decode or call words is good, but in addition to word recognition skills that students need to develop to become good readers, comprehension of what has been read is salient for the learner. What good it is to be able to recognize words in print only? It does become highly insignificant when comprehension of content is a resulting factor.

Crime Against a Person

A crime against a person includes force or threat of force against someone, for example:
• deliberately and violently hurting another person;
• threatening to hurt or attempting to hurt another person;
• murder, attempted murder, sexual assault, robbery and kidnapping; and
• some traffic accidents that result in death.

Being a primary school teacher I have witness the frustration on children's faces when they meet an unfamiliar word as they read. Putting down their book to grab a dictionary takes time, so they 'kiss their teeth' in a disgust manner and either put down the book, continue reading with no understanding of the reading selection or if it is for a Reading Comprehension assignment they create answers that are not relevant to their questions. Have You Ever Seen This Happen ? Well take a look.

How is Crime Controlled?
Crime control refers to the methods used to reduce crime. Crime is controlled by:
the law
the government police
private security
and consequences such as time in jail, fines, and death penalty.
The Job of The Government's Police
The government police's job is to enforce the law, meaning to control crime. Police officers are allowed to carry firearms legally. These weapons are efficient in controlling crime because they can take away lives, and almost everyone fears death. They also have special cars with sirens to clear the road to help in chasing criminals. These cars are also used for patrolling, to ensure that there is no criminal activities happening.
The help of Private Security
Private security also helps in controlling crime. Security officers, technology, and self-defense all tie in to this to make private security. Security officers function in the way police do, but they only monitor one area. Security officers do not carry firearms like police, but other weapons such as a batons, taisers, and pepper spray. Security officers help in controlling crime in a business they are stationed to.
Other Crime Control Methods
Technology such as cameras
Closed-circuit television(CCTV) are used for monitoring a business or home.
