Activity 2

problematique

I chose criminality (particularly robbery) as the problem situation in my community. In the past year, at least a dozen incidents of robbery/hold-up and snatching have been recorded in our area. Moreover, in 2012, a neighbor was robbed of his motorcycle, shot and killed just a few steps from our house. The suspects were never arrested.

I identified three subordinate influential factors to the problem: the lack of security, the dark streets, and the rising poverty incidence among those living in our community.

Meanwhile, I listed four superordinate influential factors to the problem: the failure to implement the existing laws; the lack of funds to hire additional personnel to make the environment more security; the problem with the status of our subdivision, which prevents the installation of city-government funded streetlights; and the various economic issues that result in the rising poverty incidence.
