A key premise of this course is that research and theory on self-control should do more than just advance our scientific understanding of behavior”it also should lead to good ideas that inform public policy efforts to reduce crime and other problems linked to low self-control. With that in mind draw from the reading in this unit to discuss what you see as the most promising policy implications arising from the research covered in this unit You will be expected to post a reply by 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday of that same week. Responses are expected to be approximately 3-4 paragraphs but the most important issue will be content”your posting should answer the question that was posed cite relevant reading materials and be clear organized professional and well-written. Also to encourage an interesting and productive dialogue https://fpg.unc.edu/news/ted-talk-they-keep-talking-about-power-high-quality-early-ed

A group of people in the state of Nature form a new religion called GreenSpace which is devoted to connecting with natural spiritually and to preserving nature to the extent possible. This religion carries on for over 50 years and is passed from generation to generation until it has thousands of members. A tradition develops within the religion of GreenSpace that once every year during hunting season (May 1 through November 1) adherents dress up in costumes that make them look like deer and roam the forest for an entire eight hour period. During the seven years since this tradition has started a total of 12 members of GreenSpace have been accidentally shot by hunters and of these three have been killed. Therefore the state of Nature passes the following law: Section 1. The purpose of the statute is to prevent GreenSpace members from undertaking actions that are dangerous to themselves and others pursuant to their religious custom. Section 2. No person shall dress in a costume that causes him or herself to appear as though he or she is a deer between May 1 and November 1 of any calendar year. In response to this legislation GreenSpace members organize a massive protest in downtown Nature City on Saturday May 12. However when they apply to obtain a permit that would allow them to protest in this manner their permit application is denied. After some research a GreenSpace official finds that the Nature City permit application process gives discretion to the city to deny a permit to protest if in the judgment of the licensing authority the demonstration is likely to seriously inconvenience residents of Nature City. When the GreenSpace asks a government official why they were denied a permit while BlueMan Group was granted a permit after a similar application a month earlier the official responds Well you know BlueMan Group really isnt so controversial. You guys are extremely controversial and I figured that granting the permit would cause protesters and counter-protesters and would in general lead to a massive breach of the peace. After having been denied a permit GreenSpace holds a rally in a local park instead. During the rally Rosa a GreenSpace spiritual leader announces: We cannot support any government that continually disallows us our traditions and continually ignores the needs of our environment. We need to seriously think about planning and overthrow of the current regime. If we can do so nonviolently that is preferable. But if a little violence is necessary to then so be it. Issue 1: GreenSpace officials bring an action to declare the statute regarding the deer costumes unconstitutional because it restricts their free exercise of religion. GreenSpace argues both that the law was aimed at their religion and that it restricts otherwise legal behavior that they are required to engage in because of their religion. Please analyze and discuss whether the statute is unconstitutional as a violation of GreenSpace members free exercise of religion. Issue 2: GreenSpace officials also bring an action to challenge the denial of their permit to protest in downtown Nature City. Nature City officials argue that the permit system is merely a reasonable time place and manner restriction and that their decision should therefore be upheld. Please analyze and discuss whether the permit system as applied in this case is constitutional or is an unconstitutional restriction on GreenSpaces freedom of speech and assembly. Issue 3: Rosa is arrested and charged with incitement. Assume that her statement as quoted above would be considered incitement under the laws of the state of Nature. Rosa argues that her speech is constitutionally protected under the First Amendment. Please analyze and discuss whether she is correct or whether she can be constitutionally charged with incitement. Need at least 2 supporting case law (United States) and 2 statutes 4-5 pages
A Judges Authority to Carry a Gun in Open Court In this assignment you will research and study the judicial authority and role of a judge to carry a gun in the courtroom. You will determine whether it is appropriate for a sitting judge who is tasked to keep order to have a gun in the courtroom for his or her protection where he or she has disallowed guns by others. Typically bailiffs carry stun guns while in the courtroom and attorneys witnesses and spectators are not allowed to enter the courtroom with weapons. Using the South University Online Library or the Internet you will prepare a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation with a cover slide a reference slide and a minimum of 5 slides that demonstrates your understanding of the power and authority of judges during courtroom proceedings. Your presentation should also include the following: Discuss whether the constitutional right to bear arms extends to the courtroom. Discuss whether you believe it is appropriate conduct for a judge to carry a gun in the courtroom versus other public places. Explain whether the integrity of the court is compromised. Discuss any safety concerns that may arise. Support your responses with appropriate research reasoning and examples. Cite any sources in APA format. Submission Details: Submit your report as a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation that includes a cover slide a reference slide and a minimum of 5 slides of content to the Submissions Area by the due date assigned.

A key concept in economics and finance is the time value of money. Most investment decisions like buying a house paying for your education or starting a business involve making a payment up front in order to earn a return later. (You pay money out at one or more points in time and later receive your benefits based on the investments agreement.) Additionally economic factors such as supply and demand can play an important role in your investment process. If there is a huge supply of houses available in a neighborhood you like housing prices in that neighborhood may go down due to a lack of current demands. Therefore you as the buyer have more power and may be able to make an offer that is lower than the initial asking price. Alternatively in a neighborhood that is very much in demand and low in available housing the housing prices may be higher and you may need to offer to pay more to compete with other offers for a home there. Decisions in investments can end in a variety of ways. Applying your problem solving skill and critical thinking strategies can help you successfully analyze opportunities to bring the best benefits for your efforts. Adjusting for the time value of money lets you calculate if the rewards are worth the wait so that you can arrive at an informed decision before you commit your money. In this weeks discussion: Identify an investment decision that you or someone else has made. (This should be for goods or services for which one or more payments were made in order to receive increased benefits from those goods or services at a later time.) How do you think the concept of supply and demand impacted the investment decision? Now that you understand the time value of money how would you use your problem solving skill (especially critical thinking strategies) to rethink the decision in the future?
A decision tree is a great way to determine a course of action and possible outcomes associated with an officers decision. Today everyone has a camera and decisions are reviewed questioned and judged by those who have no idea what happened. In Ch. 5 you learned about tactical decision-making and scenario-based training for new officers. Discretion is a major part of a police officers role and the decision he or she makes in a split second can create many different outcomes and consequences. Watch the Decision Tree video located in the University Library. Read the Sidebar 11-1 Police Discretion in an Unfolding Disturbance Call in the New Perspectives on Police Discretion section of Ch. 11 Police Discretion of The Police in America. Consider the different stages the officer is faced with in the scenario. Select stage four five or six and review the officer response provided. Create a 10- to 12-slide Microsoft PowerPointÂ® presentation in which you: Describe possible decision points that the officer may have faced. Explain how one decision the officer could have made modeled abuse of discretion or modeled positive use of discretion. Describe factors that may limit the officers discretion. Explain at least three internal and external mechanisms police departments use for accountability. Incorporate one citation/reference from the course textbook and at least two academic citations/references outside of your textbook in your presentation. An academic reference is a source from Electronic Reserve Readings UOP Library Google Scholar eBook Collection or course reading assignments. Provideexamples to support your points in the presentation. Presentation should include a title slide introduction slide research slides conclusion slide and a reference slide. (The Title Slide and Reference Slide do NOT count towards the slide count requirement.)A 10 “ 12 slide PowerPoint Presentation should average between 800 “ 1 000 words of research. Listmajor points on the slides using bullet points which are limited to approximately five lines; approximately five words per bulleted item. Add a paragraph (approximately 100 words) to the speaker notes to support the bullet points with a citation to give credit to the source. (See Rubric) Speaker notes are not required on the Title or Reference Slide. Microsoft Support has some great instructions and a video on how to create speaker notes for PowerPoint. Includevideos audio photos diagrams or graphs as appropriate.
