    On creative measures

    I was just wondering how much creative measures is recommended, and if I could include news articles with summaries and my thoughts and opinions in my binder?

    amanda -- good question. it's not about quantity but rather, the quality of the creative measures. current events are good but they are a lower level creative measure. be sure to remind me to share current events in class.

    On CJ research workshop

    ...i went to the libary learning thing, and it was helpful in rescearching the creative measure topic, . . .

    daniele --- i'm glad that you found it helpful. he had a ton of information. i wished more students had attended. it only means that those who attended are light years ahead of those who did not.

    On the CJ research workshop

    I am having a had time finding a creative measure that I am interested in learning about.Going to the workshop informed me on how to find research topics better and how I can get more information. Hopefully, I can figure out a creative measure now.

    abbigale -- i'm glad that you found the workshop helpful. i thought it was loaded with lots of information. are there any aspects of "race, crime, law" that is of interest to you? or, what aspect of criminal justice are you interested in the most and we can take it from there.

    On the class and Hassine

    I just wanted to let you know how much I love your class.This style of teaching is a lot more interesting than traditional. I find myself a lot more active with this class. I also love the Hassine book, I'm still waiting to find out why Victor is in there.

    lindsay -- great! we will be discussing the Hassine book tomorrow in class. i hope that students who are still leery of this teaching/learning style also feel free to let me know what they dislike about this approach as well.

    On victimless crime

    My argument in class was. If someone has drugs on them either they are a dealer or a user. So if they happend to be a dealer it is not a victimless crime because they are ruining someone elses life by selling them drugs. If they are a user than it is a victimless crime until he gets in a fight from a rage or starts driving etc.... That was my argument and no one seem to understand.

    will -- there's always an argument regarding "victimless" crime and whether or not, there is always a victim. so, let me see if i'm understanding you -- is drug dealing a "victimless" crime or not? why.

    On Albert Brown

    This concerns he Albert Brown interview in the Hassine book. It said that Albert Brown refuses to apply for parole even though he eigible. My question to you is why won't they make him go in front of the parole board? The prisons are already crowded and the taxpayers are basically just paying for him for nothing.

    moniqueca -- the institution cannot force someone to apply for parole. the person should "want" to apply. this could be a creative measure -- finding out about the parole process. but more importantly, why doesn't Albert want to get out?

    On "100 People"

    I just wanted to provide my reaction to Friday's handout. I find it astonishing how the 100 people would be broken up into the different given categories. I also realize that maybe i do live a better life than many and I am lucky because I can do what a lot of others in this country take for granted( computers, reading). I believe in terms of adversarilism and mutuality that maybe if people took a step back and just helped another person out; whether in terms of money, or donating time at a local homeless shelter or even goods-that is taking a small step to changing. I think adversarilism would not be so big if us, as human beings all across the world, would not categorize or hold such hatred against a person or group of people just because of what they wear, what they believe in,where they live, sexuality,etc.... This prejudice i feel tears people further apart and adds a superiority theme to life.

    sarah -- yes, we are fortunate in many respects. i wonder if it is simply prejudice or is there more that is dividing us? why.

    On Race, Crime and the Law

    In reading chapter 2, "unequal protection" of our Race, Crime & Law book I am apalled at how black people were treated in relation to law enforcemnet. I like to think that i'm somewhat aware of what black individuals had to endure throughout history. However I am still shocked while reading about the specifics. We as a nation would like to think that we are above such treatment now. However as we discussed in class, forms of unequal treatment continue. Maybe on a more subtle level.

    mona -- things are not always what they seem. that's why i like students to think critically about what they are reading, observing, hearing, and so forth. we will be discussing this chapter in class.
