I would look at the media, moral panics, nature vs nurture, gender, sexism/racism in the criminal justice system, labelling, there's lots of theorists that can be applied to this question

use Cohen 1972 - moral panics - https://www.tutor2u.net/sociology/re...ics-cohen-1972
labelling theory - Becker - https://www.tutor2u.net/sociology/to...belling-theory
start with these
it means, how can society have created crime? for example, does societies view of and reaction to deviant people (moral panics) create more crime. does the media have an impact on it? by publishing tabloid articles about crime. are people labelled from birth and therefore more likely to commit crime?
Basically ideas like the above. Hope this helped!

hey I have the same essay question and was wondering if you would be happy if I send you one of the paragraphs and tell me if I can even use it, and if I could how I could improve it.

You know, if I mentioned how laws have been decriminalised and explained one, and said it has been decriminalised because the society believes it should be accepted can we relate back to the question from here saying this is why crime is a social construct because we as humans have decided what’s crime and what isnt

Yes absolutely, but make sure you have a sociologist to back up the point as this will get you more marks!
