Why is labeling theory so controversial

Resolved Question:

Why is labeling theory so controversial?
Submitted: 6 years ago.

Expert:  Chris M. replied 6 years ago.

Hello, and thanks for the question.

 

Labeling and treating lawbreakers as criminals, especially in young, first-time offenders, usually only serves to create a negative self-concept in the offender. The person oftentimes associates a criminal record and label as a major factor in defining who he/she is, and will subsequently behave in a manner consistent with the stigmatizing label.

 

Hope this helps!

What are the skills and qualities necessary for a career burglar?

 

A career burglar is an individual fully committed to a life of crime. This person is likely to be incarcerated many times and comes to have little fear of jail. At the same, a career burglar becomes very skillful at breaking and entering, choosing targets, making a quick heist, and thus, usually getting away with the crime.
