For this homework assignment, first, you should introduce the crime site and the type of crime you chose that occurs there (a few sentences is fine within an introductory paragraph). Then, I want you to think about how the three theories (rational choice, routine activity, crime pattern) we have discussed up until this point in class could apply to the crime site and crime type you chose.
Choose TWO of the theories and give a brief overall explanation of their main points in your own words (one paragraph for each theory). Then, describe how each of the individual theories could potentially explain the crime pattern observed at the crime site (again a paragraph for each).
