Assignment 1: Society’s Response to Crime

Society’s response to crime has changed over the past century. The approach of rehabilitation in the 1960s has gradually been replaced with a “get tough on crime” approach, bringing in mandatory sentencing laws and long prison sentences. Regardless of the approach, crime continues to be a problem, and recidivism for some crimes and some offenders remains high. In this assignment, you will explore society’s response to crime and different concepts of justice.

Read the following article from the Argosy University online library:

Research the ideas of justice using the textbook, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet.

  • Is procedural or moral justice more applicable for this aim? For which types of crimes and offenders is it most useful? Make sure to include any demographic information that may defend one or the other.
  • Which type of justice is most useful based on the psychological theories of crime? For which types of crimes and offenders is it most useful?
