Sample Book Insights:

#1 There is a long-standing belief that criminals are victims of sociological, psychological, or biological factors over which they have little or no control. But as I worked with criminals, I found that they were making decisions based on thinking patterns rather than causes.

#2 The environment continues to be blamed for causing people to commit crimes, and the most common example is exposure to violence in entertainment. But millions of people watch violence in films and on television programs, and no one is turned into a killer because of it.

#3 The causes of criminal behavior are extremely complex, and there is no single factor that explains it. To ask why any crime occurs is like asking why human nature is what it is.

#4 The notion that poverty causes crime is not limited to the United States. In 2005, the United Nations General Assembly cited the crime and poverty trap to which certain regions of the world are vulnerable. And in 2006, Joseph Donnermeyer and his colleagues wrote that social disorganization facilitates crime in both rural and urban areas.
