From a personal stand point, labeling in general has the same characteristics as profiling. From an academic perceptive, I understand the need for appropriately classifying and categorizing criminal behaviors, not the individual as many are led to believe. It is not a self fulfilling prophesy, it is actualization and reality that effectively treating delinquent behaviors starts with a method and avenue to do so, thus, labling is the result of distinushing difference in acts.
