Discussion Post: Law & Criminal Justice

You learned that certain victims are valued above others.  Why do you think that is? How do you think that impacts the CJS overall? More specifically how do different statuses play a role in bias-motivated offense laws?  Explain how victimization occurs for people by class, race and gender. How do these different kinds of victimization overlap  and create issues of intersectionality previously ignored? Chapter  8 reviews several financial crimes, many wide spread. What do you think is most problematic about these types of crimes in criminal justice policy and how laws are created? Use examples to illustrate as much as possible. Then describe in detail what policy changes you would put in place to solve these problems.
