Leonardo. Notabaro to journalist Joshua. Joshua Davis said: He was only six years old at the time, his mother sent him to buy milk, and he came back with a lot more money than when he went out. It was stolen by Notabaro while the milk seller was asleep, and then he ran away as soon as he was done. Notabaro's mother beat him up and, according to Davis, "he found what he was comfortable with." Perpetrators are often described as determined and courageous.
Neither the "heroes and villains" view or the "victims phone database and survivors" view deny that perpetrators have a firm side. The "victim and survivor" view holds that criminals must commit crimes in order to compensate for wages that they do not receive because of poverty or social injustice. The "heroes and villains" view is even more central to the strong will of the perpetrator. Politicians who are convinced of this view usually believe that if crime is to be solved, we must have severe penalties. One of the main arguments held by opponents of gun control is that making it harder to legally own a gun will only deter law-abiding citizens, not criminals. As the slogan of the Tea Party movement in the United States put it: "Criminals don't deal with gun control. Strict gun laws won't stop those who will."
The belief that the perpetrator must have a strong belief in the crime is especially reflected in the language used by law enforcement officers. As the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute report states: "Modern crime is increasingly organized, sophisticated, and permeating our daily lives. Therefore, we all have a responsibility to develop new types of interventions that can address novel and complex crime problems.” Thus, the portrayal of perpetrators as unwavering is also used to justify certain crime-solving problems. The specific way: Law enforcement must be more financed and penalties must be tougher to deal with sophisticated criminals.
