CH. 1 & 2

– At the end of each chapter is a Review which includes a section titled Criminology and Public Policy. Review the Questions for Discussion at the end of each chapter. Draft your responses and submit them via the appropriate Moodle drop box. I never want to read words from the text! I expect in-depth answers. List each question and respond to it before listing the next question.
Students must list each question and the response, individually. It is very helpful to use color-coding (contrasting font colors – the questions in black and the answers in red or blue). Most questions require a paragraph response but a few require a list. No question should be answered in less than two sentences (2 SENTENCE RULE). Students should give complete, thorough responses. When the question seems to demand only a curt response, you can always expound on the general topic of the question. Curt responses are never acceptable. Your answers should demonstrate an understanding of the topic

**CHAPTER 1 QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSION**: Sutherlands broad definition of criminology (see pg 22) includes a critical examination of the criminal justice response to crimes. Following the spirit of his definition, how should we fashion and refashion our criminal justice system in response to the threat of terrorism in the US? Should we increasingly delegate the responsibility for investigating and combating terrorism to local law enforcement agencies? How, then, do we control the flow of intelligence data?

**CHAPTER 2 QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSION**: Crime data are often discussed in radial terms. As we note in the “Race and Crime” section of chapter 1, these data raise a host of questions, including, as professor Rudovsky notes, the way people of color are treated by police. Is racial profiling justifiable ? Ever? If the answer is Yes, how effective must the profiling be to remain justified? If the answer is No, do the events of 9/11 suggest a justification for other forms of ethnic profiling?
