CRIM1010 - Introduction to Criminology

15 Pages Complete Study Notes Year: Pre-2018

What are key weaknesses of a legal definition of crime? Legal definition of crime: regards crime as that activity defined by the state; that is, if an act is proscribed by the criminal law, and is subject to state sanction in the form of a specific penalty, then it is a crime. • The state has the ultimate power to shape the reality of crime and how society responds to that reality. • Overlooks the fact that ‘the law’ itself is deeply problematic. • Narrow conception of harm, deviance, anti-social conduct, injustices and rule-breaking. • Often disregards the issue of state-sponsored actions that may themselves be sources of considerable harm, but which are not criminalised by the same state.
