    Could someone please help me with this question? :)

    Which of the following could be considered a response to moral panic?

    a) anti-hooning legislation
    b) crackdowns on youth curfews
    c) paedophile registers
    d) all of the above
    e) none of the above

    I can exclude e)none of the above. Moral panic is described as a raised level of concern regarding certain kinds of behaviour and the increased level of hostility towards a group. There is a public concern over the behaviour itself or the problem it poses. In consequence I am tending to d) all of the above because all the three could be responses to moral panic, concern about hooning etc. What do you think abbout this?
