PLEASEE!!!!! ONLY USE THE BOOK TO ANSWER THE QUESTION. Always cite the book when answering the questions. For example say (page 34, paragraph 2, line 3-5) and then talk about that. The book is your reference. I will give you the link to the book.
Chapter 11
Do you know someone were involved in a diversion program (e.g., teen court, traffic court, etc). What were the procedures? Were there sanctions? How did involvement impact the person? What were the perceptions? Did the individual engage in similar behavior later? If so, how long after? If not, why not? Given the concept of net-widening, should there be intervention for those who engage in minor offenses or should they be left alone as eventually they will desist?
Is home confinement with electronic monitoring a deterrent? Are there negatives to being confined to one’s home? What type of person should be on home confinement?
Many programs exist that are not faith-based that received funding prior to President Bush’s faith-based initiative. Many believe that such programs receive less funding or have less access to more funding as they do not fit the requirements to receive funding under the faith-based initiative. Given the proposition that there is no evidence that faith-based treatment programs are any more or any less effective in reducing crime than are secular treatment programs, should the initiative and office developed under the Bush Administration be dispensed and funds distributed among secular and faith-based grant offices? Or should the initiative remain as it provides common ground of treatment between conservatives and liberals? Additionally, determine if students have a preference for the type of faith that is funded (e.g., Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, etc). What are the reasons they may have preferences? Address religious biases as needed.
Drug courts seemingly have a positive effect on those who are processed through them. Other focused and well-designed programs include mental health courts and domestic violence courts, should there be specialty courts/units for other crimes or behaviors? What crimes? Why?
Chapter 12
In order to understand the racial profiling debate and how certain communities may perceive unfair treatment, students should address if they believe they are profiled based on age and treated differently by campus and/or local police departments.
Should certain categories of drugs be decriminalized? What might the impact be – in the short- and long-term?
Is sexting an overreach? Are there other behaviors that should be considered an overreach of the criminal law?
Chapter 13
Do you believe in the legalization of drugs? All drugs or certain categories? Do you believe there would be an increase in the number of people reporting use?
If DARE does not work, what intervention may work better?
The war on drugs has huge impact on not only poorer neighborhoods, but also the U.S. in general. The spillover from Mexico impacts the US in various ways (kidnapping, deaths, etc). What do you believe is the best strategy to combat the violence? How would you implement your strategy?
Should drugs be a legal or public health issue? Comparative analysis from other countries should be provided for substantive discussion.
Chapter 14
Specialty courts have been developed for various categories of crimes and offenders (e.g., mental health, substance use, domestic violence). Are there crimes or offender types in which a specialized court should be developed? Why or why not? How would it be implemented? What would it offer that traditional courts cannot?
The right to vote and hold office are civil disabilities that affect many felons, especially those who are minority and from impoverished communities. Do you believe that felons should be granted their right to vote upon parole? Determine any pros and cons to the issue? Should former inmates be granted the opportunity to seek an elected office? Is there a difference between them and those currently in office?
Is restorative justice possible in the United States? Why or why not? How should it be implemented?
