I realise that asking the pit to be serious is a hard thing to do, but this is important for my GCSE's, so if you could, please take the time to answer my questionnaire.


tl;dr: Do the questionnaire

Hey, I did sociology at GCSE and A-Level and I've noticed a few gripes wqith your coursework.
Firstly, the questions are far too leading and open to thought. So people aren't going to answer it as freely as they would do. The results those questions are going to get are going to be either from people trying to fit all the cliches, trying to cause some anomalous result, or trying not to appear a massive racist!

Also The Pit, being populated by a vast majority (but not entirely) of white lower-middle class males under the age of 25 and seem to answer every other question with "porn" "dick" or "a black man". So it's probably not best for a representative (least of all serious) sample.

What gender are you?

Male

How old are you?
17-19


Where are you from?


(WEST) Midlands
(Don't lump me in with those scummers from Derby, Leicester and Nottingham.

Or even the scummers from 'Burminghum' and the Black country. Or Wolverhampton.)

What social class do you believe most criminals belong to?

Other. Working class people by definition work, so are generally not criminals. Unless by crime you mean anything other than theft, i.e murder, rape, assault, parking offences etc, which are committed by people of any class.

Why do you believe that most criminals are members of that particular social group?

Criminals come from all social groups, but they're usually criminals because they have an addiction to pay (drug addicts steal), or because they're nutters (mass murderers)

Which ethnic group do you believe commits the most crime?

Afro-Caribbean (Black)

Why do you believe that the ethnic group you chose commits the most crime?

Poor financial situations, leading to poor living conditions, leading to poor education (worse schools worse areas), lack of qualifications, leading to lack of job opportunities, leading to crime to assist survival

Which Age group do you believe commits the most crime?


21-25


Why do you believe that this age group commits more offences than others?

People in this age group would otherwise be in further education or full time employment. If they're in neither they will probably be comitting crime to make a living.


Which Gender do you feel commits the most crime?

Male


Why do you believe this gender commits more crime?
Testosterone


Please write a short description of what you think a criminal looks like; Please include ethnicity, Gender and age group etc.
Black Male, late teens early 20s, drug addict, unclean/unkempt.

North America

What social class do you believe most criminals belong to?

Working Class

Why do you believe that most criminals are members of that particular social group?

Working class is where the chavs lie. But, seriously, I think that most criminals come from that group because they lack things they need or they are in that group because of their criminal behavior, I hear it's pretty hard to get a job when you have a criminal record.

Which ethnic group do you believe commits the most crime?

Caucasian (White)

Why do you believe that the ethnic group you chose commits the most crime?
There's more of them simple as that.

Which Age group do you believe commits the most crime?

16-20

Why do you believe that this age group commits more offenses than others?

Usually seems to be about the age where a person is more free (not being held down by a job) and pressured by peers to do things.

Which Gender do you feel commits the most crime?

Male

Why do you believe this gender commits more crime?

Males tend to be larger risk takers.

Please write a short description of what you think a criminal looks like; Please include ethnicity, Gender and age group etc.

Criminals can be anyone, that and consider most people download a few songs or movies illegally most people are technically criminals anyway.

What social class do you believe most criminals belong to?
Working Class (unemployed working class)

Why do you believe that most criminals are members of that particular social group?
In groups with little/no income, theft can be the only source of money. People with more money to their name do not need to steal, as they can afford the bare necessities. Perhaps young middle class teens with steal from grocery stores, but that isn't as widespread as, say, burglary or being mugged in the street.

Which ethnic group do you believe commits the most crime?
Other (specify) I don't believe any ethnic group is responsible for the majority of crime

Why do you believe that the ethnic group you chose commits the most crime?
Ethnic groups depend on location. Here we have plenty of romanians and albanians who are often blamed for crime, but statistics have shown that white people do just as much (if I recall correctly)

Which Age group do you believe commits the most crime?

16-20

Why do you believe that this age group commits more offences than others?
This group is young and willing to take risks. Also, if they're under 18, their punishment will not be as strict if they get caught, which might be a "motivating" factor.

Which Gender do you feel commits the most crime?
Male

Why do you believe this gender commits more crime?
Judging by news reports, most crimes involving rape, theft and murder are performed by men. Women less often.

Please write a short description of what you think a criminal looks like; Please include ethnicity, Gender and age group etc.

I don't know. Anyone could be a criminal. However, when I try to imagine a criminal, I always picture a 20-something male.

There are more people in the working class and they are poorer as a result there is more stress and desperation which i feel makes them prone to try anything to improve their lives/lives of their families

Well i read somewhere that the chinese population in the world all together makes 3+ billion people and is the most populated country in the world also india has 1+ billion people in it so by numbers alone i feel that they commit the most crimes as there are more of them chances are the amount that are criminals also increases.

Why do you believe this gender commits more crime?

well i think as women are getting more rights and becoming more liberal this is changing and starting to even out but in general guys feel responsible and are often more prone to acting without thinking


Please write a short description of what you think a criminal looks like; Please include ethnicity, Gender and age group etc.

this is impossible as a criminal doesn't have a look we just stereotype it. In my opinion the most dangerous criminals are the ones who seem/appear to be normal, friendly good people

I'd usually imagine some white guy in a orange suit. Kinda older because he's been there for awhile. So that means he was much younger when he committed the crimes.

I believe that criminals are members of that particular social group because it is these people who make the least money, if they live in poor conditions they might result in criminality for more money. But people who smoke marijuana are considered by society "Criminals" and people from every class smokes weed.
But I'd say Working class and below.
