  • Criminology - 1,619 words
    Criminology Criminology One of the biggest issues in America today is crime. It is a large problem that continues to erode our country economically as well as morally.

This is because the American people are sick of the ever growing problem and seem to be voting for whoever claims to do the most about it. Major ...
