2.Do you think that crime is primarily caused by individual characteristics or by social factors? Be specific.
3.What events and processes in your life have shaped these views? (I.e., why are your thoughts on crime causation the way they are?)
Throughout the history of human existence, one of the problems that has faced human civilization is the menace that is incurable, crime. To find its cause and solution, it is prudent to actually understand what crime really is and its nature. Many people agree that crime is defined as a harmful activity against society. There are several theories that have been postulated to bring forth the meaning of crime but there is actually no substantial one to address it completely. This paper renders a discussion on the causes of crime as it occurs in the society.
