What are people thinking? That’s what we’ll discuss in this session on offenders and their really bad choices. The crime triangle is covered, along with the sociological/geographic theories of why crime occurs. Reasons for offending including mental health, substance abuse, psychopathy are also discussed. Finally, we will work through the differences between street-level crime, criminal networks, terrorism, and gang-crime. You will come away with a better understanding of how offenders work individually and within the larger structure of criminal organizations.
