Unformatted text preview: behavior and the process of learning conventional behavior is the exact same process, criminals and regular members of society are not raised to be completely good or bad. You “learn” to be bad later when you adopt a certain social group. What both of these two theories seem to have in common to me is choice. To me really only one who can choose to commit a crime is yourself, whether you are with a group of people, and they are pressuring you or not, its your choice to go on with the crime. A crime trend mentioned was murder. The relationship this crime has to the Choice Theory is that only you can choice to murder someone. Whether you have malice towards someone, or if it simply benefits or not, all in all its your choice to take their life. This crime trend (murder) in relation to my specific geographical area isn't too high. According to the Nevada Crime Rates 1960-2008, murder has the lowest offense. http://www.disastercenter.com/crime/nvcrime.htm...
