After watching an episode of a crime drama, compare and contrast the media’s portrayal of the criminal justice system to the real world in a 2-page paper that addresses the following questions:
What features of the criminal justice process, as well as patterns of crime and victimization, did the program accurately portray? Which were distorted? How might watching television crime dramas inadequately prepare people for a job as a real criminologist? For example, how accurate is the view of what criminal justice and law enforcement officials actually do on a day-to-day basis? What aspects of the job are not shown? How do the punishments received on the program compare to those in the real world? tHE NEXT PAPER ONE PAGE , you will submit a proposal. It should be one page and should identify the topic of study, a working title, and a thesis statement. Do it on the Jodi Arias case.
