Under the classicism approach, there are control... ? Contract between...

For example, trial by battle is based on the belief that whoever God favored wins and is the innocent one (Lilly, Cullen, & Ball, 2011, p.19).

Labeling theory starts by disregarding the idea or the connection between crime and behaviors. The theorists argued that through the “labeling” act, the severity of a crime is not based on the harm that it causes but on the criminal label bestowed on it (Lilly, Cullen, and Ball 141). This indicates that the labeling system does not eliminate criminals from the street but it leads to the development of new offenders.
