POLICE AND THE MEDIA:
Media #1- Law & Order- Criminal Intent
Media #1 Show: False-Hearted Judges
How do these shows or events present each component?
A judge was in a race-relations case, which a family judge deprived the defendant of his visitation rights of seeing his disabled son. The father met an orphan child and took him under his care to kill family court judges, and other judges who deprived fathers of seeing their sons. The orphan child start killing judges one-by-one until two law enforcement officials investigate the killings of the judges and bring the father and the adopted son to justice (Boyce et. al., 2010).   
Are the images positive or negative concerning criminal justice professionals? Why?
The images were both positive and negative, because the female judge and her oldest son was executed by the retaliatory father and orphan child that he took in as his son.

The criminal justice professionals, which were the District Attorney (DA) and the two Criminal Investigators were thorough in apprehending the suspects (Schwartz, et. al., 2005).   
What stages of the criminal justice process are depicted in these programs? Why do you think the focus is on these stages?
The stages of the criminal justice process were depicted on the police and court system to bring the perpetrators to justice, which the orphan child confessed on what the adopted father (who taken him under his care) has coaching him to retaliate against court judges. I think the focus of this stages were to show how people can retaliate against the system for many of reasons, such as family custody hearings, court proceedings, etc (Boyce et. al., 2010).   
Do you think these images are fair representations of criminal...
