  • AC1.5-Levels of response to crime and types of punishments
    • explanation: the more the media sensationalise a crime the more the criminal justice system will clamp down and respond severely
    • stats: HMRC can shut down any businesses that they believe are promoting tax evasion and HMRC can  apply to the court for a security payment or asset freezing order
    • example: the governments extreme measures response to  any promoters of tax evasion
    • example : the clamp down on punishments for violent crimes e.g. Doubling the maximum sentence for assaulting an emergency worker from 12 months to 2 years
    • how did the media cause this: over-reporting on violent crime and mis-representing white collar crimes by only reporting the times when they get away with millions making the government look bad
