"The Saints and the Roughnecks" by William Chambliss

Read the article “The Saints and the Roughnecks” by William Chambliss (page 314). In one paragraph, briefly summarize the article. In the rest of the paper, answer the following questions: What sociological perspective (chapter 1–Structural Functionalism, Conflict theory or Symbolic interactionism) can best be used to explain the varied perceptions of the Saints and the Roughnecks. Explain why this perspective is the best one with examples from the article. How were the Saints able to get away with their criminal activities? Why were the Roughnecks treated differently? Why were the outcomes of the two groups so different? This article was written many years ago-are the issues discussed still relevent today? Explain why or why not. You may also refer to Chapter 6 of the textbook for an understanding of Deviance.
