criminal justice 300 assignment

***********Whoever does this assignment has to agree to send me their email so I can email them the book required for this assignment because it wont let me upload it here************

This paper has three parts:

1) Using Dreamland as your source material, illustrate and explain the complexity of concepts of crime, law, and justice in the US.

2) Drawing from all course materials from Weeks 1-9, identify and explain historical reasons for the complexity you illustrate.

3) Reflect on what you read in Dreamland and tell me three things you learned about crime, law, and justice in the US from reading it.

Specifically, identify and explain three complexities about the concept of crime, three complexities about the concept of law, and three complexities about the concept of justice. By complexity, what I mean is that there is not one way of looking at the term since different stakeholders have different views of it. By identify, I mean give me a substantive and appropriate example of a complexity illustrated in the book. By explain, I mean tell me why you chose that example that you did to make your point. You will need to think critically here and, for some answers, read between the lines of work.

Then, for each complexity, give me one specific, historically-based reason why that complexity exists and tie that reason to any of the other class material covered during Weeks 1-9. Your reason may be an event, a theme, a trend, a person, etc. Next, explain your reason: why is it applicable and relevant? You will need to think critically here and, for some answers, read between the lines of work.

An example of one and two is as follows. I use tobacco instead of opiates to illustrate how this should be done:

“One are of complexity of crime is in the area of drug laws. What drugs are legal and illegal? How are legal drugs regulated? For example, tobacco is a legal product that has gone through many forms of regulation. The federal government largely stayed out of the discussion with states (some of them tobacco producing) taking the lead under dual federalism traditions. Additionally, their was a major corporate involvement in shaping the issue. Madison Avenue advertised tobacco to specific demographics to increase the consumption of what they knew to be a hazardous, deadly product. For example, Virginia Slims were marketed to women; “smoke them because they increased your sex appeal.” Marlboros were marketed to men; “smoke them and be a manly, John Wayne type.” Menthol-infused KOOLs were marketed to African-Americans, capitalizing on the “birth of cool” jazz culture and a cultural preference for menthol in marketing studies. In each case, millions-became addicted to the product and millions died from smoking related illness. Still, they were not outlawed because addicted smokers voted and the smoking lobby made sure politicians were well compensated for keeping the product legal no matter the cost. The juxtaposition to marijuana illegality during the same period of time is striking.”

Whenever citing from Dreamland and any other course material, you will use direct quotes if merited. You will always cite your source. For our purposes, just use the author’s last name and the page number or the film title if a film/documentary). For example: (Roth: 45).

Do not write in essay form. Outline your responses in the following manner:

*****

1. Historical reason

B. Complexity example 2

C. Complexity example 3

1. Historical reason

2. Law

You may cut and paste the outline as is so you can maintain the headings and sub-headings.

You should write a short paragraph for each point in the outline above. Be thorough, not trite.

Your responses will be assessed with an eye to your ability to follow directions, write clearly and effectively, the thoroughness and appropriateness of your responses, and your interaction with the breadth and depth of the source material.

Keep in mind just answering the question does not merit an A. It merits a C. How well you execute your answers compared to your peers moves you to the above average (B) and excellent (A) ranges, or to the below average (D) levels (i.e., you answer questions inconsistently, rely on just one or two sources, fail to proofread, etc.). Failure to meet criteria as established will result in a failure for this assignment (up to a zero).

Proofreading is important folks. Don’t get hammered for the same mistakes you have been making in your weekly assignments.

Please use a 12-point Times New Roman font. Please use single spacing. Please do not exceeded four single-spaced pages. No bibliography/works cited is needed. Just cite sources in-text as directed.
