- Give an example of potential changes in the law. How will these changes to laws impact the field of policing, as well as the other areas of the criminal justice system? What recommendations would you make to adapt to these changes in order to be effective? Explain.
- What are the various organizational police functions (local, state, federal)? How do the various functional levels of policing differ from one another? What distinctions can be made about each? Is there a better solution to the way the current system(s) operate at each level? Explain.
- local and federal agencies differ, and the missions of each. Do the two work well together, in your opinion, on cases where both their jurisdictions are impacted (big drug cases, for instance)?
- EVALUATE EMPIRICAL AND SPECULATIVE THEORIES THAT HAVE BEEN USED TO EXPLAIN ORGANIZED CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR.
- Both, Empirical and Speculative theories, explain fundamentals of organized crime, thus, allowing researchers to understand the inside operations of said groups. Referencing conspiracy theories, (speculative, this week's readings), do you believe those folks who, knowingly and willingly, tamper with witnesses or evidences should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law?
- EXPLAIN THE PERSPECTIVE OF ORGANIZED CRIME AS A SOCIAL INSTITUTION.
- Here is where we start going into the theoretical aspect of organized crime. What are the various theories of organized crime? How does organizational theory help us understand the phenomenon of organized crime? How is the theory of differential association relevant to explaining entry into organized crime? Explain your answer. Of the various theories of criminality applicable to organized crime, which do you think is the most appropriate? Why?
- After you do some reading, you probably see that psychologists differ widely in their views on the connection between personality and crime. Note that recidivist criminals have been frequently diagnosed as suffering from antisocial personality disorder. Some of this is discussed in Sutherland's theory of differential association, specifically the characteristics. As you read the text material, I would like you to contrast this explanation to the traits of antisocial personality disorder.
- In the text this week, the author talks about the concept of social institution. What is the definition of a social institution? Why do some authorities consider organized crime to be a social institution? In what ways can you determine if this view is valid? Can you compare this theory or phenomenon to anything you have personally seen or experienced? Explain.
