Authors Green & Ward (2004) and Buist and Leighton (2015) suggest that state definitions of crime are skewed, biased and insufficient. Explain in your own words what is meant by state crime, hegemony, organized deviance vs. individual deviance, state-coprorate deviance and how these concepts explain why the definition of crime is skewed towards the powerless.

Human rights are used as an standard to broaden the definition of crime - reflect on how and if human rights are an appropriate standard to use, providing some examples to support your claims. Use Buist & Leighton's (2015) study as an example of how the definition of crime can be manipulated by those in power. FInally, conclude with your thoughts on the definition of crime and by providing your own examples to support the thesis of this skrawl.
