2. Scholars have suggested several ways of better controlling organized crime than were discussed in the unit. If you were given the task of controlling organized crime, what would you choose to do (you can discuss some of the ideas from scholars or your own ideas)? Why do you think this would reduce organized crime? I believe people engage in organized crime because for them it is easier for them to adapt to that rather than a normal job. Or maybe even a normal job just didn’t cut it for them. Therefore, to reduce organized crime, the job market must be fixed. Everyone knows how hard it is to find a job and it’s only getting harder. The work people put in to go to college for 4 years and not be able to find a job based on that education just isn’t cutting it anymore. 3. Why do you think people steal from their employers? Do you think that taking home small, inexpensive items from an employer is acceptable? Why or why not?
I don’t believe stealing is acceptable at all. Having someone pay for things and then to have someone just take it for free frustrates me and angers me, especially from employers. You have the job that you’re making money with, why do you need to steal? Perhaps for them they feel like their payment isn’t enough for them, they feel the need to steal. 4. Why do you think companies engage in corporate crime? Do you think that society should be doing more about corporate crime? Why or why not? What measures could be taken to reduce corporate crime?
