CJ499 Criminal Justice Capstone – Week 7 Assignment 1
Case Study – Discrimination and the Death Penalty
Students will read chapters 13, 14, and 15 of the Kappeler and Potter text, The Mythology of Crime and Criminal Justice.
Upon completion of the weekly Kappeler and Potter chapter reading assignment, students will then submit a two-page case study, outlining discrimination and the death penalty. The summation should include either the crime rate in the United States from Chapter 13, the juvenile death penalty from Chapter 14, or restructuring the study of crime from Chapter 15.
The weekly summation will not require a title page, so focus on your essay portion for your case study. Ensure that factual information provided in your essay is supported by listing your references at the end of your case study and citing your references within your essay. Points will be taken off for lack of content, spelling, composition, and grammatical errors and/or for a late submission.
