Assignment Details If the neighborhood or area that one lives in is closely related to one's likelihood of being involved in crime, it would seem that the neighborhood environment is directly correlated with crime. However, there are many citizens who live in high-crime and impoverished areas and refrain from committing crimes. Please post an answer to the questions below. Support your answers with academic or real-life criminal justice examples to accentuate your point. Also, you must provide at least 2 feedback posts (3 5 paragraphs each) to 2 of your classmates. The questions are as follows: Provide your opinion about the rates of violence (murder, aggravated assault, rape, robbery) in the United States, and compare them to at least 2 other industrialized countries (such as Canada, England, or Germany). o If you find that the rates are much higher or much lower, why do you think this is true? Discuss some of the difficulties you have experienced when comparing crime rates across countries.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
