English term or phrase: General deterrence
Definition: General deterrence can be defined as the impact of the threat of legal punishment on the public at large. General or indirect deterrence focuses on general prevention of crime by making examples of specific deviants. The individual actor is not the focus of the attempt at behavioral change, but rather receives punishment in public view in order to deter other individuals from deviance in the future.
