Notably, cyber deviance incidences have been rampant in the recent past. Precisely, numerous reasons can be linked to the rapid spread of cyber deviance. Some of the reasons include increased computer crimes, immodest movies and televisions shows, the liberal internet platforms, and lack of parental guidance to young children. The liberal internet is the main reason behind the dramatic increase in cyber hate, cyber stalking, and pornography activities. Most of the online platforms do not have proper regulatory guidelines, an aspect that has allowed just anybody to use the internet to fulfill self-interests. As a result, propagators of cyber hate, cyber stalking, and pornography has had the upper hand in carrying out their malicious activities and identifying targets. However, there are numerous methods that can be applied to curb the cyber deviance incidences. Foremost, the governments need to redefine the legal description of cyber deviance acts by introducing tough laws and restrictions in order to regulate the vice. The public needs to be educated regarding cyber deviance, its implications, and its safety.

There are numerous descriptions of what can be termed as legal or illegal drugs worldwide. In the United States, however, the primary difference between the two is that legal drugs can either be purchased over the counter or with a prescription from a qualified physician. Illegal drugs, on the contrary, cannot be legally produced, ordered, or prescribed anywhere in the United States.  In particular, it appears that some harmful drugs are legal while the less harmful drugs are considered illegal. A good example is evident in the legalization of alcohol and tobacco that otherwise yield more harm compared to most illegal drugs. However, such drugs are classified as controlled drugs meaning that the government is able to regulate their usage any time. Nevertheless, the drug classification system has been crucial in assisting the law enforcement efforts to decrease drug abuse and usage among the American population. In short, it enables the government to control the production, purchase, selling, and use of various drugs.

In numerous instances, alcoholism has been considered in terms of both genetic and social explanations. In comparison, both explanations attest that alcoholism seems to run in families. However, the social explanation holds on that alcoholism is passed on from one generation to another, while genetics identifies an alcoholism gene that has an ability to influence an individual’s likelihood of having alcohol use disorder. Precisely, multiple genes are perceived to be responsible for playing a great role in a person’s risk of becoming an alcoholic. However, some genes are considered to increase a person’s risk while others minimize the risk. On the contrary, social explanations suggest that the pathway to alcoholism is complex and spearheaded by numerous psychological, cultural, and biological factors that mutually interact and change over time in different stages of life. Personally, I consider the genetic explanation to be more convincing. Most individuals who struggle with alcoholism reside in settings that harbor people who have never taken alcohol in their livelihood, therefore, suggesting an internal genetic problem within their bodies.

While there are numerous types of corporate deviant behavior, bullying proves to be a common challenge in most organizations. Corporate bullying can be defined as the unethical actions of individuals or a team directed towards a specific worker or a group of workers. Mostly, it is applied to humiliate, degrade, intimidate, and even undermine a particular employee’s capability in the organization. Precisely, it has been identified mostly from incidences of misuse or abuse of power. Nevertheless, there are some deviant activities known to characterize corporate operations. They include aggressive character, abuse of resources, and organizational politics among others. Poor management and inadequate communication is a primary cause for such activities. As a result, the deviant activities sabotage corporate goals towards achieving maximum productivity and a healthy organizational culture.

Defining robbery as a property crime indicates a common crime that relates to theft or damaging someone’s property. It has been used to describe small-scale crimes such as shoplifting to high scale crimes such as arson. On the contrary, robbery is considered as a violent crime, especially when the perpetrator applies or attempts to use force on a victim. It has been used to refer to numerous offenses such as rape and other violence-related crimes. I personally believe that robbery is a form of violence as the police states instead of the attempt to gain money as the author asserts. Obviously, most robberies if not all are committed using force and violence. Besides, the aftermath of a robbery incidence leaves the victim in a state of fear that brings along numerous consequences.
