This is a a discussion board please follow all the steps.
My topic is Stalking
Discussion 3 is about Paper 3 topics. Early in the semester, each student has selected one topic for Paper 3. So, for this discussion forum, students will write the first draft for one (or two) of the three sections listed below:
Part 1: Select one or two sections below and write the first drift for that section(s). This same draft paper (for the section(s) that you select below) can be used for the actual Paper 3. For this purpose of this discussion forum, the draft-section does not have to be full length. Focus on getting the basics down, while leaving room for expansion of that section(s) when you write the actual paper 3.
Note that this is a research-based paper and it should reflect the academic reading that youll do to prepare for this assignment. Meaning, you need to include academic references within the text to back up your response. Typically, all concluding statements or statements that refer to statistical conclusions or prior research should have at least one in-text reference.
Cause-Effect Analysis of the (selected) Crime (in this case Stalking)
From the research point of view, discuss the causes (e.g., factors) that push a person into committing a series of crimes (the discussion needs to be specifically related to or about the type of crime that youve selected for paper 3). In this section, you need to show me that you have researched and found enough evidence to construct a cause-effect relationship. In other words, through research, you need to learn why a person commits a series of crimes (be specific for the type of crime youve selected). To address the cause-effect relationship in this section, you can reference opportunity theories, any interaction theories, available research, etc. Do not discuss your own opinion in this section.
If you decide to select this section for the discussion forum, discuss behavioral details from the crime scenes (i.e., what is the typical evidence that the investigators expect to find or will find at the crime scene of that particular serial crime, and the evidence that is expected to be absent). Discuss offenders focus of interests, the type of relationship he makes with the target (i.e., with the victim), the offenders thinking process in terms of what he uses to select the circumstances of the offense, the risks factored into the account (i.e., risks he accepts before committing those crimes). In other words, through the above elements, you will build the likely motivational factors, offenders personal needs, his lifestyle, and offenders history of his past behaviors. Do not discuss your own opinion in this section; reference published research instead.
If you decide to select this section, discuss problems associated with investigators biases in the evaluation of the evidence of serial crimes (specific to the serial crime that youve selected for paper 3). Additionally, focus your discuss mainly around the confirmatory biases and tunnel vision as related to the investigative process (e.g., what problems can confirmatory biases generate that may lead to a failed investigation).
Part 2: Ask two open-ended questions related to one of the three sections above that other students can answer in the discussion forum. These questions should be written in the form of request for advice.
Part 3: I will send 2 questions that would need to be answered as well. For now focus on part 1 and 2.
