AOJ 206 Unit 4 Discussion Answers
This chapter covers quite a bit of diverse material – We will focus on Exhibit 11.1 (or 12.1 in 5th edition) from your text here.
Review the clip from “60 Minutes”, “Stop Snitchin (Links to an external site.)”
- Provide a brief synopsis and your thoughts about the video and article.
- Do you think pop culture (music, television, music) has any role or influence in encouraging criminal conduct? Explain your thoughts.
- The media clip and article reference rap music. Do you believe rap music or any other type of musical genre of music encourage the exploitation of women and give a “thumbs-up” to crimes against women (e.g., prostitution, pimping).
- Can pop culture impact police investigations and relations with the community? How?
- What options do investigators have and what can the police do to combat this challenge? Can they do anything? Should they do anything? What is the real problem?
- Is the problem snitchin’ or is it something else entirely, like the police lacking legitimacy in these neighborhoods?
