There are occasions when certain types of deviant behavior are considered criminal 

and occasions when that is not true. It is important that you can identify why or why not this is 

the case. As a result, here is your assignment:

1) Identify three (3) behaviors which are against the law (crimes) but which you do not

consider to be deviant. Please make sure that you clearly identify why you think these 

behaviors are not deviant. This means you have to provide a thoughtful rationale as to 

why this is the case. 

2) In addition, you must then identify three (3) “legal” behaviors that you do consider to be 

deviant. As was the case with the previous section, you must identify some rationale for 

why you have identified the behaviors you chose.
