Criminological Theories Presented in the Media

There are five groups of criminological theories supported in media representations of crime and justice. The five theories are:

Rational-choice theories: Crime is seen as being a free-will decision.
Biological theories: A person is born to kill.
Psychological theories: Crime is caused by defective mental or personality development.
Sociological theories: Crime is caused by a criminal environment.
Political theories: Crime is the result of inequity, oppression, and racism.
The media tends to reflect the theories popular at a given time. Based on your understanding of these theories, respond to the following:
