The recent essay assignment was due yesterday and the topic i chose was "blame the victim" vs. "blame the system". this topic is still a big issue when looking at the causes of crimes and poverty. the popular opinion is the "blame the victim". while its easy to point a finger at one person and blame them on a crime, we sometimes dont look at the source of the problem. the reason these people cause crimes is because they either grew up in a low-income home and were forced to go to schools that were not as good as ones in urban areas. these children also did not have good role models growing up in the low-income neighborhoods. dont get me wring, not all people that grow up in these neighborhoods become criminals. but when looking at statistics is shows that many criminals grow up or around low-income homes.
