Functionalists believe crime is beneficial to society. Talk about Durkheim with his five positive functions crime provides and Mertons strain theory and reaction to anomie. Make sure you link back to the question and explain WHY it's useful or not be you won't get full marks for knowledge and understanding. Hope this helps xxxx
