Criminology, tutorial notes
enlightenment = was the age of reasoning
during the enlightenment before rational ppl got punished unjustly
the classical paradigm
punishment is seen as bringing ppl to see their risk as greater than their pleasure
and if you were to see the risk you weren't going to commit the act. and vice versa
classical system created a punishment that would fit perfectly for each crime so that
everyone that did that specific crime would get the same punishment
crime must b considered as an injury to society rather than an injury to the actual
crime must be measured by how the crime affected society
neo-classical theory
thought it was unfair to treat everyone who commited crime the same bc of
mitigating and aggravating factor.
benthem - self disciplined indiv. =guard tower prison where the prisoner werent able
to see outside.
specific deterrence: suppose to specifically deter you from committing that crime
general deterrence: publically let ppl see the consequences so others don’t commit
that crime
general deterrence is unfair bc you're punishing the criminal harder and you're
punishing them for other ppl and not for their self
