|Case Study 1 - In what ways did the local community try to prevent crime?|
|Imagine we had the Anglo-Saxon system of tithings,
hue and cry etc today.
Discuss how it would work in dealing with each of the following crimes:
Damage to shops in the town centre by vandals
Theft of a car from outside a house in a busy street
Burglary of a video from a house
Which kinds of crime would this system deal with effectively?
Which crimes would it not be able to handle?
Is it a better system than the modern police?
Do you agree with the writer of Source 3 about the Anglo-Saxon system?
