Question description

Ashford 5: - Week 4 - Discussion 2

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

Robbery and Extortion

Which crime, robbery or extortion, is more harmful to the victim of the crime? Discuss the similarities and the differences between these two crimes. Your primary response should examine the potential culpability of the victim for either crime. Does the fact that the victim may have done something wrong affect your viewpoint of the heinousness of either crime?

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. Robbery and extortion contain similar elements as far as how the victim is harmed; however, both crimes follow very different routes to their commission. Should one crime be punished more severely than another? Your response to this question will challenge your views on how we measure the appropriate punishment for crimes. If the victim “causes” the ability for the crime of extortion, should people be punished less than the person committing the average robbery?
