Strain theory and concentric zone theory and the Lex St massacre

Pick two specific theories and use these theories to explain a real-world criminal event or activityTHEORIES- 1. MERTON’S STRAIN THEORY 2- BURGESS’S CONCENTRIC ZINE THEORY REAL-WORLD CRIMINAL EVENT- LEX STREET MURDERS- PHILADEPHIA DECEMBER 28,2000 *** You are to find some criminal event from an online search and you must provide your professor with the website and specific address for the online article that discusses this event or activity. The website for your chosen event or activity must be submitted to the instructor by the beginning of week four so that it can be verified by the professor by the close of that week. This event can be discussed in any online news or academic source (for example, an online news story, discussion in an online professional journal, an academic journal that is online, and so forth). Upon selecting your topic event or activity, you will then choose two specific theories (for example, Social Learning Theory by Ronald Akers) to explain three specific issues. The issues to be explained by the theories are as follows: Why the specific criminal event or activity that you chose occurred, How each theory can be used to predict and prevent the likelihood of a similar crime occurring in the future, both nationally and globally, and Suggestions that each theory would probably give on how to process this offender (or group of offenders) through the criminal justice system (i.e., death penalty, life sentence, community supervision, treatment orientation or punitive orientation, and so on).
