Note: Due to the sensitive topics of rape, sexual assault, and other forms of vi

Note: Due to the sensitive topics of rape, sexual assault, and other forms of victimization, if you are sensitive to said topics, then I encourage you to select Option #1 instead or skip this week’s discussion (if you have a free skip).
Select the ONE OPTION that you are most able to respond to and submit your work below. Remember to read the chapter first and then use the material in the text to formulate your response. You can also state your opinion at the end of your submission. Please be sure meet the 350 word minimum (one one page typed, double spaced).
OPTION #1
Watch the following Lisa Ling episode on Sex Offenders. Recall our chapter on victimization. After watching this video, do you think that Lauren’s Kids is an organization that can help to make a significant difference in reducing violence against women and children? Why or why not? What are two theories from our class that you can discuss to help someone understand why violence against women and children seem so commonplace in our society? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgIki3sKNUc   Links to an external site.What can be done to reduce the violence according to these theories.

OPTION #2
This option will allow you to explore factors that are associated with Routines Activity Theory. Moreover, out in the real world, you can see this theory actualized throughout the many public places we visit and experience on a daily basis. According to Routine Activities Theory, victimization occurs due to the following reasons: 
The availability of  suitable targets, such as an unlocked car; 
The absence of capable guardians, such as a corner of a store without any cameras; 
And, finally, the presence of motivated offenders, such as an experienced burglar or shoplifter in the need of cash or items (Siegel 2011).
Instructions:
Throughout this week, try to keep an eye out for two of the three factors needed for victimization to occur: The availability of suitable targets and the absence of capable guardians. When you notice these concepts from Routine Activities Theory occurring, take a quick picture if possible (always avoid it if it could possibly lead to you getting in trouble or put you in a dangerous situation). Alternatively, you may also conduct virtual research and find the images online. However, please make sure the images are not obscene or vulgar. 
Regardless if you take your own photos or find them online, attach the photos to your main post by embedding them in your main post. If you cannot attach a photo, you can do your best to describe the scene. 
Create a main post describing what you saw and explain how it is an example Routine Activities Theory. You must include the terms suitable target and capable guardians in your main post. These terms should be applied correctly based on our course material. Include your photos for these two concepts in your main post.
Although I am not having you find images for motivated offenders because there is an element of assumption here, you should still define what this concept means and briefly describe predatory behaviors that would elicit a motivated offender. 
Define victimology and describe who was victimized in your chosen Routine Activities Theory photo example. 
OPTION #3
Select one theory from the victimology chapter of your choice and research one recent example. Locate a recent news story that relates to one of the theories covered in chapter 3 in some way and write a main post in which you summarize the news story, then apply and define two concepts or theories from chapter 3 to the news article under investigation.
REMEMBER:
Minimum Word Count: 350. Take your time when you are writing your assignment. It is best to write TOO MUCH than not enough. You can never “over explain” yourself in any of my online classes. Be sure that you are not using direct quotes, it is better to summarize the information than to use quotes.

A Little More…
Consider expanding your analysis by incorporating more diverse perspectives and empirical evidence. Exploring the experiences of marginalized or underrepresented victim populations will provide a more comprehensive understanding of victimological issues. Strive to further evaluate the effectiveness of current victimology theories and practices. Consider how theoretical concepts can inform practical interventions and policy development to better address the diverse needs of victims. Strive to further integrate course material and real-world issues into your discussion. Drawing explicit connections between victimology theories, course material, and current events will strengthen your arguments and demonstrate a deeper understanding of victimological issues.
