    Maybe The Classical theory is theory, it states, people have free will to choose either criminal or conventional behavior. According to Champion people choose to commit crime for a reason of greed or personal need. Crime can be controlled by criminal sanctions, which should proportionate the guilt of the perpetrator.I am just not sure which one, I posted the other in my first question, for some reason I posted the same question twice

    I don't agree with the classical theory, but apparently most people do see that as the most practical.

    so in your opinion which one will describe better the crime in our country?

    Crime all over the world exists for many reasons, including: greed, poverty, criminal environment, a culture that cultivates asocial and antisocial behaviors, egotism, and peer pressure.

    As you consider crime, please consider that CEOs who take huge salaries from nearly bankrupt companies are perhaps bigger crooks than the guy who snatches a purse or breaks into a store.
