Read through the cases and find one that interests you. MAKE SURE the story you select has a section for a "Parallel story of someone who was caught" (it will be on the right side of the page, in a blue box). If there is no parallel story, select a different story to write about.
Put the title of the story you select at the top of the page (for example "Social Worker: Assault").
In a (1-2 paragraph) response, briefly summarize the stories (the main story and the parallel story), and discuss how a labeling theorist would identify each person. Which person is deviant? How has that label of deviant shaped their life? Think about the person who is not labeled as deviant--how might avoiding the 'deviant' label have shaped their life?
Think about surveillance as a mechanism of social control. In a (1 paragraph) response, discuss how living in a carcereal culture shapes the probability that more individuals will become 'deviant' (using labeling theory's definition of 'deviant'?)
