Generate a chart or table that lists a variety of crime types. Your chart should include at least four types of crimes and should include violent crimes and economic crimes as two of the types. For each type of crime you list, provide a description of the cause of that type of crime. A third column on your chart should list the sociological theory that best fits what you have described as the cause of that type of crime. (See SOC-220 Lecture 3 for discussions of sociological theories about crime.)
Working from the information presented in the chart, write a synopsis (250-500 words) in which you take the next step and propose a social solution for each type of crime you identified in the chart. If, for example, one type of crime is property crime in which someone's property is taken or destroyed, you might think that the root cause is poverty and that social process theory explains this cause. Then in your synopsis, you would describe an antipoverty program that would minimize poverty in this country and thus reduce this type of crime.
Utilize the GCU Library to locate three to six peer-reviewed sources in support of your content.
