Structure of the Deviant Act
- deviant acts focus on the particular instance of deviance, nt the relationships
surrounding them.
- Deviant acts involve one or more people aiming to accomplish a particular
deviant goal
- These vary widely in character from those during over a period of months to
the more fleeting encounters the last only a few minutes, from those
conducted alone to those requiring the participation of several or many
people, and from those where the participants are face-to-face to those
where they are physically separated
- Some deviant acts can be accomplished by a lone individual, without
recourse in the assistance or presence of other people.
- A second type of deviant act involves the cooperation of at least two
voluntary participants.
o This cooperation usually involves the transfer of illicit goods, like
pornography, arms, or drugs
- The final type of deviant act is one of conflict between two involved parties
o One or more perpetrators force the interaction on the unwilling
other(s), or an act seemingly entered into through cooperation turns
out with one party setting up the other
Deviant Careers
- six themes tend to be most commonly addressed in the literature on deviant
careers
o entering deviance
attracts the greatest bulk of scholarly attention for two
reasons: policy makers have great interest in finding out how
and why people enter deviance so that they can prevent it, and
it represents fairly easy data for most scholars to gather since
every individual or group of deviants can tell their story of how
they got into the scene
o training and socialization
training and socialization of new deviants
relatively little has been written about these areas for a few
reasons:
most deviants get relatively little explicit training in
how to perform their deviance, how to avoid detection,
how to deal with the police, and other important
concerns
real training generally occurs when deviants are
working together as a team
o changes over time
this type of procession analysis represents a highly nuanced
understanding of deviance that cannot easily be captured by
the frozen-in-time snapshot of most survey research
