Crowley Andrew 10/8/07 Expos 101:DA Rough Drat # 6 Title Introduction: What makes a criminal? Is it the person in questions psychological or emotional problems, or is it something completely different. Are the surroundings, whether they be the people the place or the time, the cause of a criminal. I don't know the answer to this but I do know that people are trying to find out. Malcolm Gladwell, a well known critic working for The New Yorker, wrote an essay pertaining to just this subject. In his essay, "The Power of Context: Bernie Goetz and the Rise and Fall of New York Crime," Gladwell writes about how the mind of the person does not affect them being a criminal, but it is there surroundings that affect it. Thesis: Susan Faludi's work, "The Naked Citadel" and James C. Scott's "Behind the Offical story, help confirm the fact that the surroundings affect everything. 1: People commit crimes because they are always around it and are provoked to do it, Similarly Scott's Elephant Gun Man was provoked killing into an elephant not because he had the desire to but because he felt he had to so he could impress all the natives watching him. 2:Shannon Faulkner will destroy the Citadel reputation and make the guys feel uncomfortable everywhere. "The Citadel Experience" will be destroyed because the guys say they do all these weird things because there are no girls around. Shannon Faulkner would make them self conscious. 1 3: The men of the citadel constantly berated the Faulkner family because all the men were doing. 4. All Upper Classmen hazed the freshman because everyone did it was socially acceptable. 5. Citadel Men were forced to get shemales because no women went to the citadel. They need sex but will not get it from each other, thus they go for a substitute. 6. The farmer from the beginning of "behind he official story" kept his mouth shut to the man who fired his father because it was not socially acceptable to punch him. Conclusion. Close with last quote from gladwells essay. It is insightful. 2
