Power, Wealth and the Perception of Deviance

Power, Wealth and the Perception of Deviance


Conflict theorists describe how deviance is defined by the people in power. In society, power and wealth impact the perception of deviance and the overall treatment of those who commit crimes.

Instruction for initial post: Describe how power and wealth shaped the outcome of a deviant act or a crime. Share a specific example of a case where social class influenced how a deviant individual was treated and punished. Analyze in detail how power dynamics played in favor of the privileged.
