Based on the readings in Parts I and II, please post a brief description of two incidents (one from each Part) that occurred in these sections of the book. Please state the facts of the incident, as covered in the book. Then connect your incident to the criminal justice system. This connection must have depth and clarity. There must be additional sources used to make your connection. You may use textbooks from other criminal justice classes, amendments, case law, etc. A weak connection will earn a commensurate grade. This is not an opinion paper, so please keep your writing to facts. Your paper must be a minimum of two full pages and a maximum of three, excluding the title and references pages. When paraphrasing or summarizing, use in-text citations, include page numbers. NO QUOTES! Your work must be in the form of a Word doc.

The second paragraph is for the connection to the criminal justice system for your your first incident. The third paragraph will be for the second incident (from Parts II). The fourth paragraph will be for the connection to the criminal justice system for the second incident. When you are making your connection, you must use the exact words “The connection to the criminal justice system is….” This will make clear what you are citing as the connection.
