The use of low intelligence as a predictor of criminal behaviour has been the cause of considerable controversy within criminal justice discourse across a range of societies and cultures for many centuries. The downtrodden of society, for the most part those of low socio-economic status, have often been victims of labelling theories that associate their desperation for survival with low intelligence, along with their associated frequent mistreatment as miscreants. The source of such labelling and definitions originates in all societies with those in positions of power imposing laws, policies and stigmas on those without power. A self-fulfilling prophecy often follows, perpetuating the belief

Viet Nam affected families; fathers, brothers, children were dying and the age of the innocence was lost forever. Juveniles began a culture of their own, smoking, drinking alcohol, using drugs to attain a mental or in some cases a physical high to ease their pain of loss.

, killing were only contracts, he didn't view them out of personal affairs it was just business. It didn't matter the weapons of choice he use to murder his victims like knife, guns, cyanide, and a crowbar. He was the kind of guy who didn't have any attachment as long as the job got done. For me he falls into the category of Psychiatric Criminology because he displays a psychopath behavior. A psychopath is an individual who has a personality disorder, especially one manifested in aggressively antisocial behavior, and who is lacking in empathy. Being able to manipulated those around him and to be so unemotionally attached to them is what defined Richard Kuklinski. The “Iceman” in this case is that he so detail in his line of work that his “friends” will later turn into enemies, and see no problem with it and to be able to erase his tracking to all those murders he was very conniving.

Adopting a Postmodernist approach, Carol Smart (1990) introduced the concept of 'transgressive criminology‘. In a postmodernist society, transgression is beyond the boundaries of conventional criminology. It considers ideas as diverse as self-imposed curfews; treatment of women as victims; domestic violence, abuse and rape.
Some sociologists would argue that women are more deviant than they appear and are protected by a ‘chivalry factor‘ by the authorities, including the police and the courts.
Hilary Allen (1987) argues that there is a mental health explanation, including PMS for female criminality, resulting in lighter punishments by the courts.

No human being or human-made system is free from corruption or fraud. Contrary to the popular belief, corruption, bribery and fraud are not problems specific to economically underdeveloped countries; on the contrary, these crimes are quite widespread in developed Western democracies, particularly in the US. Broadly speaking, these deviant behaviors, defined as “white-collar crimes,” can also referred to as “crimes of the powerful.” It was Edwin Hardin Sutherland, a US social scientist, who first coined this terminology in the literature of sociology and criminology.

Those findings didn't come as a surprise to Stuart Twemlow, an established voice in the field and co-author of Preventing Bullying and School Violence.

illustrates how the society is operated by a group of wealthy and influential individuals who use their positions to exploit the services provided by the poor. These poor people are regarded as the working class since they are mostly involved in the production of goods for the ruling class. It is therefore correct to say that members of the ruling class are users of what is produced by the working class. Through this imbalance, society creates laws, and other specifications to govern the manner in which a country operates.

One of the main responsibilities of a jail is to give the officers the correct “Police Correspondence” courses. This is because these courses give the officers the effective basic training that they need to do things such as; Writing of Memoranda, Police Reports, and Civilian Letters. What needs to be done first is make sure that there are NO errors. This means in spelling, punctuation, price, and grammar. These should be thoroughly, and constantly, edited. Another thing is conciseness; this means it should be brief or limited in words. Although, concision does not mean deleting words that count just to make

Unfreeze, Change, Freeze
Kurt Lewin proposed a three stage theory of change commonly referred to as Unfreeze, Change, Freeze (or Refreeze). It is possible to take these stages to quite complicated levels but I don't believe this is necessary to be able to work with the theory. But be aware that the theory has been criticised for being too simplistic.
A lot has changed since the theory was originally presented in 1947, but the Kurt Lewin model is still extremely relevant. Many other more modern change models are actually based on the Kurt Lewin model.

1. According to the Statement of Cash Flows, Chesapeake has a positive cash flow from operations in the amount of $27.8 million in 2009. Moreover, there is a negative cash flow from investing and financing activities in the amounts of -$6.7 million and -$31.1 million, respectively. Chesapeake invested $6.7 million in fixed asset acquisitions. However, Chesapeake still has an overall positive cash flow in the amount of $27.2 million. Although this amount is $10 million lower than the last fiscal year (2008), this should not be too much of a concern at this time because $10 million was used to pay down long-term debt. Overall the main sources of cash was from operations and the main uses of
