The conflict theorist believes that when crime is concerned, there is not a general consensus among society's members about what constitutes right and wrong behavior. Hence, one's ideas about what is criminal/deviant will depend on what group that person belongs to, or where they fit in social hierarchy.
The conflict perspective views "deviants" of society as "Robin Hoods." They are social protesters or rebels violating the norms on behalf of the little people, who are ordinary citizens.
