Deviance is defined as a variation from a set of norms or shared social expectations. Presently, the United States of America Criminal Justice System incarcerates more people than any other modern country. One might say that America is obsessed with locking people up.

Compared to other modern societies, is it safe to say that some citizens of the United States are born deviants? And, why are some communities more vulnerable to crime? Are the members of communities where crime is high and more likely to occur, social devaints?
