Final Capstone Project Preparation. Review the Final Capstone Project
in Week Five and select the issue in social and criminal justice that you
will address. Identify and develop your thesis statement and your
resolution for your chosen issue. This will be your initial version of the
thesis statement for the Final Capstone Project, but expect that it will
evolve after receiving feedback from your instructor and classmates. At
the end of the learning week, reflect back on the feedback your
classmates and instructor have provided. Reference your textbook,
Chapter 1.2, or the Writing Center for help with constructing your thesis
statement.

CRJ 422 Week 1 DQ 2 Criminal Justice Effectiveness (New)
FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT
www.crj422genius.com
Criminal Justice Effectiveness. The U.S. criminal justice system is in a
constant balancing act between the rights of individuals and the need to
protect citizens from harm. Most individual rights are found in the Bill
of Rights of the U.S. Constitution, as listed in Chapter 8.1 of your
textbook. Review these individual rights and provide your opinion on
whether or not the effectiveness of the criminal justice system is
hindered by individual liberties. Provide at least two specific details or
examples to support your opinion. You may choose to draw these
examples from your life and work experiences or from the Ashford
University Librarys Westlaw database (contains documents and reviews
of court cases).
------------------------------------------------------------------------
CRJ 422 Week 1 Journal Article Critical Analysis (New)

Journal Article Critical Analysis. Utilizing the information gained from
your reading of Chapters 4 and 5 of the text critically analyze one of the
five scholarly articles found in Chapter 10 of the text. Choose an article
that best relates to your thesis or could potentially be used to support
your position in the Final Capstone Project. In a critical analysis of the
article, complete the following: Provide the formal APA citation of the
source. Summarize the articles thesis and main points in one or two
paragraphs, at maximum. Critically evaluate the relevance of the data
used to support the thesis of the article. Evaluate the significance of
the sources, including whether they are primary or secondary sources.
Provide examples of either the presence of bias or lack of bias evidenced
by the authors. Critique (as defined in Chapter 5) the accuracy,
acceptability, strengths and weaknesses, and overall soundness of the
article. In your critique, consider whether or not the authors persuaded
you with their viewpoints. Using source treeing, as described in
Chapter 4.1 of your text, find two related scholarly articles and explain
how the articles you found could be used to support or contradict the
premise and findings of the article being critiqued.

FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT
www.crj422genius.com
Recent Federal Acts and Social Justice. The Patriot Act and the
Homeland Security Act of the 21st Century form the foundation of the
United States domestic response to the terrorist attacks of September
11, 2001. Many legal and political voices have advocated that these acts
have resulted in a reduction in the rights of citizens and a loss of civil
liberties. Many other legal and political voices argue that in this new
world of terror we must have more effective ways of preventing terror
attacks. With these differing perspectives in mind and after watching the
required ABC Nightly News video segments, construct a paper that
critically evaluates whether or not The Patriot Act and the Homeland
Security Act unjustly and unreasonably inhibit individual rights, and
how they impact notions of social justice in the United States.

CRJ 422 Week 5 Final Paper (New)
FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT
www.crj422genius.com
The focus of the capstone project is to solve a contemporary social and
criminal justice issue through the application of information from a
variety of related fields, which may include sociology, law, psychology,
and ethics. In developing a proposed solution to a modern social and
criminal justice issue, you are encouraged to use scholarly and primary
sources, multimedia, and interviews with professionals in the field (if
possible) to identify and devise a workable plan. Within the Final
Capstone Project, complete the following: Identify a clear thesis
statement to address your chosen criminal and social justice issue.
Summarize your chosen social and criminal justice issue. Propose the
resolution to the social and criminal justice issue. Examine the
operations of the criminal justice system as it relates to your chosen
issue and resolution. This may include operations related to crime scene
investigation techniques and security; the collection, preservation and
presentation of evidence; and processes related to correctional
institutions, incarceration, and release. Analyze how the criminal and
social justice theories (in relation to the United States Constitution) and
landmark U.S. Supreme Court decisions impact your chosen issue and
support your resolution. Explain how social and criminal justice systems
promote social equality and fairness for all and how this impacts your
issue and resolution. Consider how poverty, racism, and religion apply
to contemporary social and criminal justice. Assess how the
centralization of criminal justice agencies in the United States, The
Patriot Act, the U.S. Homeland Security Act, and international aspects
of social and criminal justice impact your issue and resolution. Identify
and describe at least two careers in criminal justice (existing or to-be-
created) for agencies that may be involved in addressing the issue and
resolution you have chosen.
