I’m working on a criminal justice discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
1) Imagine you are the director of a delinquency prevention program and have the opportunity to create separate programs for boys and girls OR a combined program for the two of them. What would you do? Be sure to provide a rationale based on what you have learned in Chapter 7.
2) On January 1, 2007, Denver Broncos Cornerback Darrent Williams was shot and killed by a known gang member, after a night club dispute. Read the following article on the case; http://www.denverpost.com/sports/ci_14655722 (Links to an external site.). Is this type of gang violence typical? Or do you think the media is sensationalizing this story based on the high profile status of the victim? Discuss your thoughts on the media and gangs in the context of this article.
