How is criminal behavior explainable according to rational choice theory?
harking back to classical era, RTC looks at the criminal event as opposed to the individual criminal, data rather than individuals, and explains crime as the rational choice between pro's and con's. the "offender" weighs up their options in the context of their own background circumstances (race/education/family...) and choses to commit crime. RTC is more a theory which you would use in conjunction with other ones such as control theory.
