Storyboard Text

  • This is Joey. His parents are divorced, and he lives with his dad. 
  • Joey does not play any sports, so he spends most of his time playing video games. 
  • Joey does not care about school. He is unsure of his plans for the future. 
  • Joey does not have any money, but he is hungry. He decides to steal a candy bar.
  • Joey's deviant behavior can be explained by the control theory. Joey is not very attached. His parents are divorced, so he is not close with his mom. Also, he does not have many friends. In addition, Joey is not involved. He does not participate in any clubs or sports, and he does not apply himself at school. Commitment is not important to Joey, who does not think about his future and does not have any goals to accomplish. All of these factors make Joey more likely to be deviant. 
  • Joey most likely stole the candy bar because he does not have any strong relationships that could be harmed by his actions. He does not think about his future, so he is not worried about the consequences of his action or how they might affect his future. Plus, Joey had plenty of time on his hands since he does not participate in any activities or do his homework.
