A classical view: Why do people commit crimes?

People commit crimes because of what they want to do. Criminal behavior is a matter of opportunity. Today, there are many excuses as reasons shrouded in criminal behavior. The nature of these misleading claims have serious implications for strategies of crime control. The classical approach to the fight against crime is to direct the tactical strategies of intervention. Law enforcement within this section, take an aggressive approach to criminalActions. The tactics of delay reactionary position refers to the illusion of rehabilitation. In Classic view, according to deviance and crime will be dealt with proactively. Is committed to assisting the legal and social aspects of law enforcement. Deviant behavior in the form of crime must take a repressive approach to behavior. This approach must come with speed, accuracy and safety. Sanctions must work control, work in systems of justicecrucial. The guard in the criminal justice systems must be able to provide the necessary funds. From a historical point of view, the classical school of criminology is often overlooked as an effective strategy for preventing crime.

All the scientific resources available, legal and technical assistance should be the force behind a more classical approach to criminology. These efforts should be applied in the context of modern times. According to a theory of "psychological hedonism", thethe classical approach, that people freely choose between alternatives of conduct. In this perspective, the plans of the criminal behavior of the offender before the implementation of the measures. The individual creates the basis for their departure from a socially, morally or legally sanctioned aspects of behavior. A person who calculates the pain "for the pleasure, an act", or profits, less risk to a certain thing. Not unlike the rest of us, brings the offender from hisBehavior as a result of personal calculation. Such acts of variance arising from the joy that is greater than the risk. In other words, they want something, take someone else. Criminals want the shortest distance between two points. The impact of the doctrine is that the response of society for the crimes of directors should be a measured amount of pain. The overall rate of the classical school is that it is necessary for the undesirable acts painful. EnclosingPunishment is necessary to have an influence on behavior. Similarly, the punishment is necessary to re-education, so that criminals learn from costly painful consequences of such behavior is counterproductive.

Reliability and responsibility are linked in some way, so that the loss of income received overcome. Because the punishment should be, which can be calculated, must be the same for all individuals. No one is independent of age, mentality, social or economic status, political apologiesor affect other self-indulgent conditions. People are absolutely the responsibility for the actions they have chosen instead. To replace the deterrence and punishment, the moral rehabilitation. Prevent criminal behavior before it happens, is part of the overall strategy of the objectives of preventing crime. This perspective assumes that people take advantage of opportunities. As people are free to decide their behavior, is a ban of society is needed fast. A concept of "free will" is criminologyare necessary to ensure that society does not disintegrate because of apology obsession with behavioral problems. Behavior is influenced by a decision-making process, based on the results. As such, it is a criminal behavior.

The motivation to commit acts of criminal behavior, refer to the will of the basis for internal control, dominance, anger, revenge and the display of perceived personal inadequacy. A square of motivated self-reflection emerges. Desire the opportunity to acquire the ability to merge and to the formulationMotivation strategy. A multi-dimensional space in the mind becomes an outward expression of exploitation. As such, we need to fight crime strategies and tactics to maintain the intrinsic motivation of the offender. Intrinsic motivation is the subjugation of another person for personal gain. Approaches that are hasty generalizations and politically correct agendas counterproductive to the health, safety and welfare of the community. We need to think about what the individual criminallike. He or she is not much different than the rest of us. Except that the penalty would be rather "the word 'do in place of the legitimate way of things. Forget the pseudo-scientific approaches with the labels that are impressive and complex diagnosis. And, forget the short-term fashions or fetishes rapid solution to problems long term. Fancy theoretical constructs do not solve the crime. Instead, determined and dedicated hard working police officers. They are those whocriminal behavior to solve the problems that society. They do this through the collective interaction of public support and participation. Not by politicians, media hype, fashion or fiction.

People commit crimes as part of a selfish desire to get something for nothing. Their "private logic" focuses on their alleged "suffering" in the hands of a world insensitive and cruel. Selfish that you want to use the opportunity to exploit their prurient interests and assert theirSkills. All of this is given on the basis of their individual capabilities, what happens think they were right. The criminal is a victim of society. Neither he or she is forced into a position of disadvantage by others. The criminals are refusing to accept responsibility and accountability for their behavior. If caught, they are fast apology puppet of social sciences, media and politicians have pre-conceived for them. Criminals to develop their thought processes on the basis of "beingguilty of "something.'s behavior to what they believe is linked to the" entitlement card ".

Personal choice dominates the behavior of individual actions. We think we dream and act according to our underlying belief system. Through a process of conscious rational thought, we chose the temptations of personal taste. No matter what we bring in from outside sources, we are what we want. We learn our history, things that evoke in our minds to do. This isrational process by which we choose the right course of action to be taken. In a sort of "vision" of the world, people compensate for the risks or costs that this entails a certain action. After validation, that the "benefit" exceeds the cost, we decide to act. Then again, we may decide not to act. Crime, held in a certain sense, a seductive quality, and requires our attention. We are excited about the darkness in balance between good and evil fascinates. Good and evil is simply the thought of imageabout the extent of human nature. For some, crime pays, up to catch. At least, it is estimated a pain "than pleasure," a reality.
