CJ403- Week 2 Discussion Post I do not think that education and employment comparisons are sufficient enough evidence to separate a white collar offender from a common criminal alone. There are several factors mentioned in the book that I feel should be looked at instead as they don’t fully support employment and education being the prime indicators of a white collar offender. The reading stated that Sutherland defined a white collar criminal as someone with “high social status and respectability” but on page 31 it states, “Most white collar offenders are NOT highly educated. More than 70% of them are not college graduates”. So with an estimated 30% of white collar offenders actually having a college degree which is a required characteristic according to Sutherland, how can we logically compare all white collar offenders based on education when more often than not they don’t even meet the “educational requirements” of a defined white collar offender?

    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.
