****Pick one of the pre approved topics below ****
Demonstrate the ability to make ethical decisions as it relates to criminal justice
• Develop critical thinking skills to analyze ethical issues
• Analyze ethical dilemmas
• Discuss ethics and the criminal justice professional
Student Learning Outcomes:
• Write a well written position paper
• Analyze a specific ethical dilemma that effects criminal justice policy or law
• Incorporate high quality sources • Provide appropriate evidence for claims
• Apply ethical theory where appropriate
• Write in a clear, well organized paper in APA format
Directions:
The final course requirement for is a final paper on applied criminal justice ethics, of approximately 4-5 pp. double spaced in length. This paper should be a statement and defense of what you think about some controversial moral and/or social issue from the list of allowable topics or approved topics. I have chosen to restrict the allowable topics to rule out those topics that have such well-established and publicly known arguments that no serious thought need go into producing the paper. You must use evidence including moral theory, academic research, or related personal experience to establish evidence within your paper. Important:If you want to choose a topic,not on the list, you must clear it with me first. The final paper will be graded primarily on the following criteria:
• Having a clear and identifiable thesis statement
• Provision of support for that thesis statement through arguments and/or evidence. Most of the grade will be based on this element, so be sure to elaborate your arguments and evidence fully.
• Standard academic paper guidelines. I expect the paper to be proofread for spelling and grammar. I expect the paper to be structured and organized—treat it no differently than you would treat a paper for a composition course. If you need help with this, please use the academic achievement center. It is a great resource, and the people there are trained to help you. Some general guidelines to follow:
• Pick a topic where you feel there is room for reasonable disagreement. Do not pick a topic where you would consider those who disagree with you to be irrationalor demonic.
• Defend what you really think. Do not feel the need to pigeon-hole yourself into a preset option on your topic. If what you really think is ‘Capital punishment should be allowed only to punish crimes against humanity’, THIS is what you should defend.
• Bear in mind that a thesis statement does not have to be a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer to your topic problem. For example, ‘The abortion debate is irresolvable’ is a perfectly legitimate thesis statement.
• Topics, where you have relevant personal experience,are recommended. Your experience will often give you a perspective on the issue that others lack.
• If you use outside sources, including research studies or statistical data, be sure to cite them using APA style
• While it is not required of you to address potential objections, recognizing weaknesses and potential objections will always make the paper better as it indicates the level of serious thought put into the paper.
• Do not be afraid of admitting ignorance, especially in responding to the ideas of others.
• Avoid replacing arguments with examples. Use examples to illustrate a general claim, not as a replacement for them. Examples by themselves tend toward selection bias and hasty generalizations.
• Avoid, where possible, “we” language. Talking about what “we” believe tends toward hasty generalizations and loaded language. Our tendency to overestimate the degree to which others agree with us is a well-established cognitive fallacy. • I am interested in content, not clever rhetorical flourish. Thus, avoid filler material, especially at the beginning of the paper. No paper should start with anything like ‘Abortion is one of the most controversial issues facing us today’ or ‘Since the beginning of time, man has wondered whether…’ Write for a reasonably well educated audience.

Summarizing, comparing and analyzing the reasons for mass incarceration in Ameri

Summarizing, comparing and analyzing the reasons for mass incarceration in America given by the
authors in these two works using APA in-text citation
format:
1. The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander, a
highly acclaimed civil rights lawyer, advocate, and legal scholar. She is a former Ford
Foundation Senior Fellow and Soros Justice Fellow, has clerked for Supreme Court Justice
Harry Blackmun, and has run the ACLU of Northern California’s Racial Justice Project.
Alexander is a visiting professor at Union Theological Seminary and an opinion columnist for
the New York Times.
Professor Alexander has a definite point of view with which you may agree or disagree – this
is not intended to be a “neutral” work, like your textbook. While the entire book is well worth
reading, and is available digitally for free through the John Jay Sealy Library website, your Writing
Assignment will focus on the Introduction and Chapter Two “The Lockdown”, PDFs of which I have
included in the Course Materials section of our class Blackboard page.
2. Slobogin, Christopher. (2015). How Changes in American Culture Triggered HyperIncarceration: Variations on the Tazian View. Howard Law Journal, 58(2), 305–331. Professor
Slobogin is the Milton Underwood Professor of Law at Vanderbilt University School of Law
where he is the Director of their Criminal Justice Program and an Affiliate Professor of
Psychiatry.
Professor Slobogin, in this peer-reviewed scholarly journal article, describes cultural and
legal differences between the United States and Europe which may help explain why mass
incarceration is so much more of an issue here than it is in other countries.
Successful completion will include:
• A summary of the arguments made by Professor Alexander in the two sections of her book
listed above, together with some of the evidence she cites to back up her arguments.
• A summary of the reasons given by Professor Slobogin as to why mass incarceration is a
bigger problem in the United States than it is in Europe, with examples.
• A section where you compare the arguments made by these two professors.
11
• A respectful analysis of the different arguments made by these two authors and a statement
as to whose arguments make the most sense to you as a way of explaining America’s mass
incarceration problem and a discussion as to WHY you made this choice. You may state
whether you agree or disagree with Professor Alexander’s overall premise and why. Do you
believe she has correctly described the American criminal justice system, or do you believe
she had ignored or minimized other important factors that should be considered? You may
discuss Professor Slobogin’s article comparing and contrasting European and American
legal and cultural issues and state whether you agree or disagree that he satisfactorily
provides reasons sufficient to explain America’s mass incarceration problem separate from
an intent to continue Jim Crow principles by another name, and why you believe that.

After reading Chapter 13 and the Required Resources please answer the following

After reading Chapter 13 and the Required Resources please answer the following please use the page number to site the work.
CRIMINAL LAW 1229_JUS2205_OL
List four ways the taking element in a theft charge can be proved.
Degrees of theft often depend on the value of the stolen items. The higher the value, the greater the offense and punishment. How is value to be determined?
It is the state’s burden to prove value, and a failure to do so will normally result in a not guilty verdict. If the owner of the stolen goods must establish the value (as is often the case), how does he or she do that?
Consider the failure of proof of value of the prosecution in State v. Sanchez, 101 So.3d 1283 (Fla. App. 2012). What should it have done?

UPD: You should address the question, making a strong argument on behalf of each side of the case (the prosecution and the defense) developing your own conclusion based on evidence from sources. In doing so, you must use a minimum of three references (3) from the syllabus’ bibliography or other academic area (i.e. eText, ProQuest, etc.) Extra research beyond the specified readings will help the quality of your paper significantly.
