First, after reading the article, “Preventing Fatal Attractions,” come up with a

First, after reading the article, “Preventing Fatal Attractions,” come up with an original suggestion as to how inappropriate relationships between inmates and correctional officers can be stopped. Please note, your suggestion may be creative; however, it should also be realistic. And, your suggestion must not have been discussed in the Worley et al. (2010) article. Next, after reading and reflecting upon the articles for Week Three, in your opinion, why do some correctional employees cross the line and behave inappropriately with inmates, given that this behavior is illegal and against policy. It should be evident that you have carefully reflected upon the assigned readings. And, after reading the article, “The Economics of Crossing Over,” point to one significant research finding that you found to be of interest. Be sure to discuss how this finding advances our understanding of guard-inmate boundary violations. Also, please discuss why this particular finding may be of interest to correctional administrators and/or policymakers. Next, how do you think inappropriate staff-inmate relationships occur? Who initiates the relationship: inmates or staff members? Try to explain these dynamics as best as you possibly can . Be sure to point to various aspects of all three article to support this aspect of your response. And, in your opinion, what is the most important aspect of article by Trammell and colleagues? How can correctional administrators use this study to create a more equalitarian and humane workplace for employees? Be specific. Finally, make a comparison between any two of the research articles (your choice). Explain how these two articles both provide insights into any aspect that is germane to the interactions between staff and inmates.
In addition to fully responding to every aspect of the above question, please pose a critical thinking question to your peers. You must also attempt to answer at least one of the questions posed by a classmate (for one of your two required follow-up comments). Keep in mind that special consideration will be given to students who post comments early in the week, as well to students who post multiple substantive follow-up comments. All comments must be posted by SUNDAY, June 20th. Good luck!

Discussion: Quantitative Analysis Assume that you are a consultant engaged in a

Discussion: Quantitative Analysis
Assume that you are a consultant engaged in a project to implement a major high-speed overpass extension to the most congested highway, linking rural provinces to a major Asian city of 12 million people. A major feature of this project is to implement an electronic toll collection system for this high-speed segment.
The objective of the entire project was not just to relieve congestion, lower the cost of operating vehicles, and improve the quality of transport services. It was also initiated to help address the loss of revenue resulting from an antiquated and corruption-ridden system of manual toll collection.
You helped implement the toll collection system and returned three years later to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. Data on toll collections and traffic volumes are available on a day-to-day basis. For this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources and examine the effectiveness of the project.
Discuss an explanation of how you would analyze data for this type of project. Include in your explanation the type of design and analysis you might use to address the problem.

Do you think that the police should be entitled to search through a citizen’s trash for evidence of a crime? If so, why? If not, why not? What limitations do you think the law does or should impose upon the power of the police to use such an investigative practice?
In most instances, the government may be entitled to x-ray the contents of your bags at locations such as airports, schools, courts, train depots, and bus terminals. However, suppose for a moment that such x-ray technology had become available to police officers on the street in a hand-held device. Should officers on the street be entitled to x-ray the backpacks, briefcases, purses and other items of citizens on the street? If so, why? If not, why not? What limitations do you think the law does or should impose upon the power of the government (the police) to use such technologies?
If you were responsible for drafting the Constitution of a new country what three limitations do you feel would be the most important to place upon the power of the government to investigate and prosecute crimes or in the punishing of offenders?

In this week’s discussion board question, you are asked to watch the film ” Frankenstein” and think about how this film illustrates the core assumptions in Lombroso’s theory. That is, theoretically analyze the film with this theory as well as any other criminological theories that we discussed in our conversation on positivistic criminology. Be sure to use appropriate term in your analysis and cite your work (word count minimum 600)
After completing the analysis, please answer the following question:
How does Lombroso’s theory fit into the plot of Frankenstein?
In a similar vein, how does Goddard’s theory emerge within the film?
How do racial and ethnic biases manifest in Lombroso’s “Criminal Man” theory?
Have you ever paid attention to how criminals and villains are presented in film? How does Lombroso’s theory impact how we view criminals in the media? Provide examples of how Hollywood or Disney depict criminals based on Lombroso’s concept of atavism and physical features. Do you agree that it’s symptomatic of a larger societal problem where we decide who are criminal based on what they look like? How about the depiction of female villains?
