Crimes and deviance is related because a crime is an act of deviant behavior. I believe they represent the same actions because all crimes are deviance, however not deviance are crimes Critical Thinking Questions 1. Emile Durkheim argues that deviance is beneficial to society in a number of ways, such as showing us when our boundaries of acceptable behavior are and that it can bring a group together. Do you agree or disagree with his argument that deviance is beneficial? Why? I agree but disagree because well i guess it would be depending on what morals or norms are being used. Being deviant doesn't have to be against the law to be considered deviant.

    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.
