    The community itself is responsible for the design of crime prevention initiatives, whereas the police are responsible for the carrying out of risk assessments (Dammert and Malone, 2006, p.38). The neighbourhood council’s decision to kill Miguel can be interpreted as a crime prevention initiative and police chief De la Garza’s approval of the plan, as well as his order to abandon Miguel shows that he carried out a risk assessment, concluded that Miguel was a threat to the community and approved the project. In addition, it is possible to consider La Zona (2007) as a criticism of this strategy because of its emphasis on the destructive dynamics between state and society. In order to understand the complex relationship between these two entities, it is essential to consider ‘La Zona’ as in a constant state of exception and Miguel as a homo sacer. A state of exception “implies the suspension of the law in order to safeguard precisely the application of said law” (Lehnen, 2012, p.172). ‘La Zona’ is separated from the rest of the city through security systems, which highlights the fact that living inside this community is a constant state of exception (Lehnen, 2012, p.172). Moreover, it introduces the notion that the city is considered to be a place of peril (Lehnen, 2012, p.172) and since the three boys who enter the gated community…

    Once of the interesting aspects of fencing a home on a corner lot is the additional fencing restrictions that come with it. While you will need to confirm this with your particular council, many councils in Australia place a restriction on the height of front fences on a corner lot as a way to make sure motorists have an unobstructed view when driving around the corner. Brisbane City Council, for example, limits the height of a corner lot fence to one metre. Picket fences suit these fencing…

These are opportunities the members would not ordinarily receive on their own. Although some opportunities are for the benefit of their members, some opportunities extend outside their population into other communities. Not only are there potential opportunities to gain knowledge and experience when two or more communities begin to intertwine, there is also a…

These were all topics that were greatly interesting to me and I feel like the class improved my understanding of the way in which many communities operate. It also…
