Crime: Crash Course Sociology #20
We’ve talked about deviance more broadly, but today we’re focusing on crime, specifically in the US. We’ll start with legal definitions of crime and use FBI data to get an idea of the amount and kinds of crime committed in the US. We’ll also use that date to paint a demographic picture of who gets arrested, and explain why that’s not necessarily a full look of who commits crime. We’ll also discuss society’s response to crime in the criminal justice system, and how that response has resulted in mass incarceration. Crash Course is made with Adobe Creative Cloud.

Daniel Cronin says:

It's strange…Criminology is one of those subjects that can't "fix" an issue and so much as provide some ways to try and "improve" the situation. And with good reason, the problems are so insurmountable because of the issues we are facing are arbitrary chaotic, that is; human nature. It's the same pattern but in different shades of colour. I made this quote up in my head a few years ago that goes like " the law is holistic in nature, but individual in application" and as it is, that's too difficult to maintain.

Christina Le says:

PLEASE STArt a crash course criminology lolll

Violence Is Fun says:

I'm 24 and I'm a total loser; I live alone with no family and I never even went to secondary school. So committing crime makes me feel better about myself. As if it justifies my shitty existence

Ana Gornet-Felix says:

I like this girl's logic, we all know Bruce or Caitlyn Jenner committed Manslaughter and bc he is so rich, he got away with it, accident or not he or she should be arrested

Ana Gornet-Felix says:

crime are laws created by the rich, and only 15% are laws fought by the people

This was great. A heap of info packed in to a short vid. I'd really love to see an Australian version of this with Australian stats. Cheers, (🇦🇺💙❤an aussie criminology student)

James Johnston says:

Lol would love for them to factor in IQ for arrest rates…

Crash Course be having having thing bruh damn

Kim Tae says:

Just came here after Epstein case

tell it like it is says:

Crime is caused by the two primary reasons: (1) poor socioeconomic opportunities and (2) poverty. These are the mother and father of crime.

MrArmyman15 says:

Do the crime you do the time.

Tom McMorrow says:

Expanding upon a prior post, I've come across this in my own life.

In the early 2010's, I was arrested for marijuana…twice. The counterculture group (to use prior video vocab) that I was rolling with were all of a different socioeconomic class and I never felt I really fit in aside from cannabis use.

Both arrests were thrown out of court and I received no penalty. In fact, I'll never forget what the DA said. "Says here you're from [Affluent White Town]. A lot of good eggs from that town. You look like a good egg. I'll make this disappear". Once we left, my attorney said "Don't forget, this is a job for us. He knew how much we cost and he saw you in a three-piece suit and figured it wasn't worth it". Thanks to the charges dismissed, I was able to get my finance degree 100% paid for with federal grants (which you lose for life if convicted of drugs).

Conversely, another member of that deviant group was poor and black and got the book thrown at him. 6 months in prison, $1,500 fine, eviction from his home, car repossessed. Had to drop out of school because he lost all his grants for life.

Interesting how we were both part of the same deviant group yet had very different outcomes.

Zimba Zumba says:

Women and crime, is not typically male behaviour criminalised more?

Crazy Cat says:

I commited crime because I got abused 3 times by 3 different men I wanted to punish myself cause I believe that I let the abuse happen 😹

Kobin Barcarse says:

Brainwashing children by being selectively and purposefully exclusive of important statistics.

Hayward Jeb Lomey says:

lol mike hunt

Vicho Fernandez says:

I am a bit pissed that they talked so much about race, because its nit why I clicked on the video. I wanna know why people commit crimes. Not that blacks are more highly to be arrested. I wanted to hear about philosophical psuchological and sociological theories. So yeah im a bit pissed they talked aboit race, I know its important to talk about it but I dint feel this was the place to do so.

Rasool Ringchan says:

Maim i want to ur no i m also study in criminolog department so i want many information about criminology . U teaching good

Sashin Henry says:

Do you take these definitions from the Introduction of sociology book? I have a test on Monday and some of the papers in that book is messed up. Please answer

Sachin Raghavan says:

I wonder why animal cruelty isn't a crime. Say, could you guys do a Crash Course Paleontology and Prehistoric Life, and nature and Animal science?

Karlin Cecrle says:

So I'm genuinely curious, how do we know that the majority of arrests don't have less to do with race and more to do with poverty? Or more likely it is a combination? I realize that even minorities in the "upper class" get discriminated against… but I'm just wondering how we know for sure which factors have the biggest impact.

Joshua Thorn says:

It’s 2019 and all this has been debunked.

EvilDig403 says:

ffs, how about make a 30 min video where you just keep repeating "THEY BLAME DA INNOCENT BLACKS" again and again

Chad Morgan says:

I'm about to collect some rain water, which is illegal where I live. Welp, guess I'm a low-down dirty criminal.

Indi's Adventures says:

Could we please get a criminology series?
