law

A death notification must be made before the media is notified that a death has occurred. For example, suppose there was an automobile accident; the victim was taken to the hospital, and on the way to the hospital, the victim dies. No one in the media is notified about the condition of the victim until a death notification has been made to the immediate family.

  • Discuss the purpose of the death notification.
  • Give a rationale for why the immediate family is notified before the media.
  • Is a death notification for a police officer different than it is for a civilian? Do you agree or disagree that this should be the case?

modus operandi (MO).

When you look at television shows and read books, you might often encounter the term modus operandi (MO). This means a method of operating, functioning, or working. When crimes are committed, a perpetrator has an MO. In a 3–5-page paper, discuss in detail the following:

  • What is the difference between an MO and a signature?
  • Describe the background of each. For example, what are the driving forces or reasons behind a criminal’s MO and signature?
  • Give an example of both an MO and signature. You may use an actual case, or you may explain the difference with a fictional example.
  • Avoid using fictional depictions in movies, books, and television as bases for your research on this topic.
  • Cite any sources using APA style.

As discussed in class, we will add into the course for each student to do two, written case briefs. I have created a list that now contains a little over ten cases for selection and an amended/altered case brief format.

From Canvas, go to “Files” and look under the folder for Assigned/Required cases. There are two, separate files there. One is the list and the other the format. I will be adding more cases to the list in the next few days and grouping them into major topic areas.

For each written brief turned in — assuming a good faith effort — the minimum grade will be 20 points and the maximum grade will be 30. A good faith effort with basic effort will receive a score in the 20 – 25 point range. One showing a little more thought and effort will receive a grade between 23 – 28 points. Excellent briefs will be scored 28 – 30 points.

The particular area that will likely generate the highest scores will be the last two items on the briefing format. Those two you will see on the format as follows:

” WAS THERE A DISSENT OR OTHER OPINIONS? IF THERE WAS A DISSENT, SUMMARIZE IT AND ANSWER WHETHER YOU FOUND THE MAJORITY OPINION OR DISSENTING OPINION MORE PERSUASIVE? WHY?

               IF THERE WAS NO DISSENT, TAKE A MOMENT TO THINK ABOUT THE CASE AND THE MAIN HOLDING IN THE CASE. DO YOU AGREE WITH THE DECISION, DISAGREE, OR HAVE RESERVATIONS ABOUT THE DECISION? WHY? PLEASE PROVIDE A SHORT PARAGRAPH EXPLAINING THE BASIS FOR YOUR AGREEMENT, DISAGREEMENT, OR RESERVATIONS.”
