crime in Canada Socio-Economic Status 19th- 20th centuries- What was a major concern in Canada? Who are the underclass? How is SES typically measured? Summarize John Hagans speech from 1992. How does a high SES lead to criminal behavior? What has been proven in New Zealand, Great Britain and the USA

regarding crime and education? What is IPV? Early Theories of Criminology Classical Theory people broke the law because they thought that doing so would advance their own self interests Deviance was the natural result of our rational self interest

Prior to this, essentially before the mid 1700s- criminal deviance was the result of supernatural or demonic forces Early Theories of Criminology Classical Theory Set up a system of punishment that would deter people from breaking it Since humans were rational- weight the balance of positive and

negative outcomes of their behaviour- the more serious the punishment, the more likelihood of deterrence Punishment should fit the crime- it should be proportional to the harm done to society Remember before the mid 1700s, people were executed and mutilated for very minor offenses
