Sociology notes:   3/21/16   Clicker questions:  ● A significant number of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans have committed crimes  after they returned home­ assault, drugs, etc. What should be done?  ­Class answer: They should be punished for their crimes and treated for their   sickness­ PSTD (66%)  *People are affected by the way they are labeled  ● Honey better take all of the beautiful vases off the coffee table, two year old ben  is coming over this afternoon and will probably destroy the. What perspective  best explains the phenomenon?  Correct Answer: opportunity theory   ● Beth, be sure to be home from the party by 9 pm, you know what type of people  stay up until 10pm this supports what theory?  Correct answer: Differential association   *bad people stay up after nine, and you are not bad  Lecture notes:  ­Interactionist Perspective one: Labeling Theory:​ Acts are deviant or criminals because  they have been labeled as such    *Example: he gets pulled over and doesn’t get a ticket because the officer sees  he’s just an old man who works at CSU and labels him as not deviant. This act  was not considered to be deviant because it is not defined as a deviant act.  People decide this!  ­A Norm Violator Will Be Labeled Deviant Depending on the Social Characteristics of  the:  *Perpetrator   ­Is this person a good person and makes their actions less deviant?  ­labeling theory example applies here  *Victim  ­A guy committed murder and didn’t get the full sentence the prosecution  was seeking because he murdered homosexual men  ­The level of deviance of an act is determined by the characteristics of the  victim  *People who do the labeling  ­Example: The jury is influenced by their surroundings, so lawyers like to    pick jurors who are similar to the suspect  *Judge  ­Interactionist  Perspective #2 The Medicalization of Deviance:​ The growing influence of  psychiatry and medicine in the United States has influenced definitions of deviance.  ­The medicalization of deviance ​ –the transformation of moral and legal deviance into a  medical condition.  ­Interactionist perspective #3 Differential Association Theory: ​ Deviant behavior is  learned in interaction with others   *Example: Your mom doesn’t want you hanging out with certain people because   They are a bad influence  Interactionist perspective #4 Hirschi's control theory:​  Deviance occurs when social  bonds to conventional institutions, such as the family, school, or employer are weak  *Example: Your boss makes you go do team building activities with your   coworkers  *Can cause people to come up with simple answers when it is really complicated      3/23/16­ SNOW DAY:)                                                    Sociology  3/25/16  Clicker Questions:  ● You're most likely to become the victim of fraud if you belong to which  demographic group?  ­internet users  ­people over 50  ­low income  ­High income   ● According to the most recent goverment survey, which type of scam now lures  the the most victims?  Answer: Credit related scams  Lecture Notes:  ­What are the common themes of these pictures: old car, computer, factories, cut down  trees, polluted water, bird with oil on it, a girl in a bathing suit, skyscrapers.  ­All of these are crime scenes   *Ford put the gas tank in the far back and it was dangerous but they knew about   it. They did a study how much it would cost to fix the problem or lawsuits and   would save money if they did nothing.   *Around the world our forest have been getting cut down  *People can steal people's identities with computers  *oil spills, and fined for deliberately doing the wrong things that causes oil to be   disposed of illegally killing many sea life  *false advertisement  *Wall Street made people purposefully lose money   ***Many people say let's be really hard on crimes, but this refers to violent crime  or moral crimes but the crime that is off the radar, white collar crime.   ­Conventional Street Crime: ​ Violent­­force against others  *Property­­robbery, larceny, motor vehicle theft  *Moral­­victimless crimes(prostitution, drug use, illegalpornography)  ­White collar crimes: deforestation, oil spills, etc.  *These crimes are more harmful then the violent crimes in the long run  *The people doing these crimes have enough power to define what is deviant   *They decide what is legal/ illegal   ­Video: News story about ford not recalling the faulty cars, but there were people that  died from this. The company could have prevented people from dying.   ­Deviance and Inequality: Social­Conflict Analysis  *Deviance reflects social inequality.  *People we commonly consider deviants share the trait of powerlessness.  ­Ford did not get in trouble for murder knowing their cars could kill people,   but a   violent crime like a murder would be put away for life.    *The norms of any society generally reflect the interests of the rich and the   powerful.  *People who threaten the wealthy are defined as thieves or radicals.  ­Conflict Perspective #1 Deviance and Power Relations:​  The lifestyles considered  deviant by political & economic elites are often defined as illegal  Example: rioters are seen as the deviants­ MLK   Example: Social junk­ poor, homeless are deviants because they are “costly” to a   society   *Deviants are defined by people with more power than people with less*    ­Conflict Perspective #2 Deviance & Capitalism:​  The laws and the criminal justice  system protect the power and privilege of the capitalist class  ­Deviance and Capitalism:  *Capitalism is based on private control of wealth  *Capitalism depends on productive labor  *Capitalism depends on respect for authority  *Anyone who directly challenges the capitalist status quo is likely to be defined  as deviant  ­Conflict view: maybe these rules are the deviant aspect rather than the   people who     cannot follow these values  *You have to be careful challenging capitalism  *The super bowl parade is praise by capitalist but peaceful protest are     considered to     be deviant because they question capitalism  ­Conflict Perspective #3 Feminist Approaches:  *Liberal­­women’s deviance arises from gender discrimination  *Radical­­focuses on patriarchy  *Socialistic­­emphasizes the effects of capitalism & patriarchy on women’s   deviance  ­women have more rights in a socialist society
