Read the passage I upload and follow the direction below must be in 3 paragraph the book is Criminology A Sociological Understanding by Steven E. Barkan

Use the information inthe Crime and Controversy: Victim Precipitation box on p. 77 in yourtextbook to tell about a real life crime situation in your area whichinvolves victim precipitation.

Example

– I sat on the jury for “Bob” who had shot and killed a member of a

rival gang. Bob had been warned that he would be killed if he came into

the rival’s territory. The gang had even killed Bob’s cousin a month

earlier. However, Bob chose to visit a friend who lived in the area the

rivals had warned him about and even carried a pistol in his vehicle

for good measure. Upon arrival at his friend’s residence, Bob was

jumped by the rival gang. Bob pulled the gun and shot one of the gang

members. Even though the man Bob shot supposedly did not have a

gun, the defense attorney argued that eye witness accounts proved that

the deceased had withdrawn his hand from his jacket pocket with his

index finger pointed toward Bob. The jury ruled that a reasonable

person would have agreed with Bob’s assumption that

the deceased had a gun and that his life was being threatened. I

believe that is a clear case of active victim precipitation as described

on p. 77. Unfortunately, the actions and gestures of the deceased led

to his own demise.
