For this Discussion, you compare ancient governmental responses around the world to crime with contemporary responses to crime. Select a specific crime, and using the Learning Resources, research ancient (of your choice; see your Learning Resources for context) and contemporary responses to that crime. Analyze the commonalities and differences between the responses, and evaluate whether or not the responses are effective.
Post the type of crime you selected. Then explain one ancient governmental response and one contemporary governmental response to that crime. As can be found in this week’s readings, crime is responded to from the relative cultural reality of that time period. Provide an example to illustrate your points. Describe the commonalities and the differences in these responses. Explain whether or not you consider either response effective and why. Finally, explain whether international responses to crime have helped shape the governmental response to crime where you live. If so, explain how. Provide an example. Use the Walden Library (or other professional library with journals) and select an article to support your response.
