There are different theories on how crime and deviance are viewed. Functionalist theorists see crime and deviance as necessary due to society being dependent on each group of society to perform actions necessary for survival (Burke.H.R 2009:346). Interactionism theorists believe crime and deviance are judged by society and the severity of the crime and deviant behaviour is judged by how civilization reacts to it (S.Cook 2012). Following on from the Interactionalists theory crime and deviance are relative concepts as they change through time and in different countries. For example women voting used to be illegal, now it is legal in most countries.

In some states, the individual must be convicted of two serious felonies for the three strikes law to apply, while in others any felonies count towards the third strike. Critics of the three strike law express many strong arguments against their harsh legal statute. Our society has ultimately had an issue with the three strikes law. Some people have said that the law “destroys the flexibility of the courts and the judge, it is unjust in certain conditions, and it adds more criminals to an already crowded and expensive criminal system”
Policy issues paper CJA/314 February 19, 2014 Ashley Gehrig In this paper, I want to break down and make sense of what reasons people to carry out law violations and the numerous hypotheses in criminology. Social methodology hypothesis is one such presumption and contends that cooperation and interfacing with different people certain criminal practices are found out. There are four sorts of social methodology hypotheses including: social learning hypothesis, social control hypothesis, social marking hypothesis, and dramaturgical viewpoint. The formative process and foundation of social procedure speculations will be examined in this paper. Additionally the imperative parts of this hypothesis to criminology and the master's and con's that are a piece of the hypothesis.

The Keynesian economic policies were to allow the government to increase their control over the American citizens. The New Deal was the social-welfare liberalism, which allowed the federal government to grow at an astronomical rate. The New Deal had a powerful impact on the unemployed, African Americans, women, Native Americans, and other racial minorities. Though the New Deal expanded to the environment, which in Tennessee resolved the severe flooding by building dams and creating electricity for the residents. As the economy was needing revamping, the New Deal redefined writers and artists.
The functionalist would argue that those who transgress are usually dealt with by the law and that order is restored. The conflict theorist would argue that the law enforcement system perpetuates the inequalities and would give the example of how many white-collar crimes go unpunished.

Explain the tension between community interests & individual rights and freedoms within then criminal justice system.? Crime is defined as an act or omission committed against the community at large that is punishable by the state. It is a constantly changing area so it can reflect upon societies changing values. The tension within the criminal justice system explores whether the rights of an individual should be infringed to protect a community so they feel safe. In relation to crime, the idea of tension is an issue due to the conflicting demands between the victim, accused and society.
It is evident that crime and deviance play an important role in society today and form the “out of ordinary” actions that take place as a subsequence. Crime is a well-known term to many and is believed to involve a breach of rules or laws implemented by authorities that lead to convictions or punishment for those involved in the criminal activity. However; deviance is a term which creates much difficulty in terms of a specific definition, but the closet definition came from two men; Downs and Rock who believed that “deviance may be considered as banned or controlled behaviour which is likely to attract punishment or disapproval”. Haralambos and Holborn Sociology, Themes and Perspectives seventh edition, 2008. This demonstrates that there is some concept of difference between criminal and deviant behaviour.
