The Positive philosophy states that offenders break the law partly due to factors outside their control that influence their behavior. Some of these factors were listed in the online lesson this week.

For each of the crimes listed below, indicate which Positive factors (if any) you would take into consideration if you were a judge deciding the offender’s sentence and justify your answer. For example, when sentencing a sex offender, you might decide that the offender’s history of being abused as a child should be taken into consideration. If you do not believe that any such factors should be taken into consideration, that is OK; just explain your thoughts.

Consider the following examples:

  1. Burglary/theft—the offender broke into three houses and stole electronics and money.
  2. Aggravated battery—the offender attacked a victim and caused significant injury.
  3. Possession of controlled substance—the offender possessed two ounces of marijuana and 20 prescription pain killers (without a prescription).
  4. Stalking—the offender followed or contacted someone repeatedly, causing fear.

Considering your responses to these examples, discuss the role of punishment in preventing these types of crimes. Can punishment be used to reduce the frequency of these types of crimes? Explain your views.

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"
Rajab M.Rajab M. has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied
