Causes of Crime:
*Some individuals have a higher innate predisposition to crime.
*Charles Murray and the concepts of the underclass, who are undermining the nuclear family as the desired norm for mores and values, wrong ones are being taught.
*When opportunities arise and there is little chance of getting caught, individuals are more likely to commit crime, the ends justify the means and the cost outweighs the consquence.

Solutions to Crime:
*James Q.Wilson - target hardening, victims should be aware of crime, and put in more techniques into place such as CCTV and not wandering around, drunk at 3am! (You know what I mean)
*Zero tolerance policy, major and trivial crimes should be treated equally and both should be stamped out.
*Naming and Shaming in communities is a good deterrent for criminals, it warns them of the consequences of being isolated having rejected the norm. Link this to Functionalism, notably Durkheim and how it restricts anomie.

Criticisms of Right Realism:
*Matthews argues that tolerating 'broken windows (i.e petty crimes) does not lead to an overall increase.
*The new right policies have not proved affective in the USA as stated by Jones.
*The assumption all crimes are done for cost-benefit reasons is questionable, what about violent crimes?

Hope this helps!

New Right is similar to Right Realists, not the same and Left Realist are the complete opposite
