According to some victimology theories, just because you are a victim of a crime, doesn’t mean that you didn’t contribute to the crime.  Do you think people bear some of the responsibility for their victimization if they  maintain a lifestyle that contributes to the chances of becoming a crime victim?  That is, should we ever “blame the victim”?
