D Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Today we'll look at Colton Harris-Moore the "Barefoot Bandit" who was raised on Camano Island just north of Everett Washington in the Puget Sound.
Harris-Moore was sentenced in December 2011 to seven years in state prison for dozens of crimes, including burglary and identity theft, stemming from his two-year run from the law in stolen boats, cars and airplanes. A self-taught pilot, he was finally apprehended in a hail of bullets in the Bahamas in 2010, after he crash-landed a plane stolen from an Indiana airport. He has a "Fan Club" and 48,266 likes on his Facebook site. Many many articles have been written on him including Time, Maxim Magazine, and Outside Magazine...Twice! He also has agreed to sell his life story to 20th Century Fox movie studio for $1.3 million... So Today we'll watch "Chasing the Barefoot Bandit"

Today you'll have time to work on the two questions from this week along with a new one...They are:

  1. Have you ever perceived anomie if so what and why? What causes anomie? Is there more than one cause of strain?
  2. Have you ever been given a negative label, and, if so, did it cause you social harm? How did you lose the label, or did it become a permanent marker that still troubles you today?
  3. Is conflict inevitable in all cultures? If not, what can be done to reduce the level of conflict in our own society?
Monday you'll have a question about him on the Collaborize Classroom site.
