My name is April Weston and I am a crime analyst. My work revolves around reviewing police reports every day with the goal of identifying patterns of, analysis of, and solutions to patterns, trends, and problems in crime and disorders as they emerge.
https://www.ncjrs.gov/policing/org323.htm This website show the relationship it has with chapter 1 of our reading. It explains that there is no define definition to organized crime. They relate this to the fast development of organizations and the changing of their methods of conducting their business. Internationally they struggle to define what crimes are to be considered to be organized crime. The reason that this hinders the process of defining organizations and the crime they are is that the data is hard to compare with so many different definitions. The international data is also tainted because of the difference of judicial systems, and the difference the police register the methods of the crime. The police and courts need to have a

On 04/18/2016 I assisted Sgt. Patterson on a traffic stop in the 900 block of East K-53 HWY, Sumner County, Kansas. When I drove past I observed an older four door passenger vehicle stopped on the north side of the road with Sgt. Patterson's patrol vehicle behind it with
I didn’t grow up in the best of circumstances. I grew up in a neighborhood filled to the brim with crime. My father was a low ranking gang member with little to no room for advancement. My mother was a heroin addict. Or whatever she had on hand. Sometimes my father joined her, but when he got high or drunk he became very abusive. That was typically when I snuck out and hid out at a friend’s house for a few hours. But I never stayed the night. My father made a habit of visiting my room, as if trying to make up for the fact that every time that he lifted his hand, maybe to catch my attention or something harmless like that, I would flinch away from him.
It was February 12, 2006. My wife and I are about to get ready for the day we’ve been waiting for, we are finally going to seek justice for the man that killed my innocent 4 year old daughter. Since March 3rd I have slept absolutely none, but after today everything will be finished with.
Five days had passed this time since anyone had heard from my mother. I remember praying to God to protect her from harm and for me to find her. The next day she showed up, but not in the way we had hoped. One morning as I was getting ready for school my sophomore year in high school, my phone rang to the voice of my stepfather. My stepfather had told me he heard a call come over the dispatch scanner at his work and my mother’s name was mentioned. The sheriff had informed my stepfather that my mother had been involved in an accident. My stepfather asked me to go to the emergency room and see what condition my mother was in because he lived a half hour away from the hospital. When I arrived at the hospital I found my mother cut out of her clothes, covered in her own urine, massive amounts of blood all over her body, and lying lifeless on life support on the table. At this point, no one knew whether my mother would be okay. My mother had bleeding on the brain as well as a tear in her shoulder, a shattered face, and a chest tube draining fluid from her lung which had collapsed. All I could do was pray! My mother’s life was in God’s hands now. Three days later she woke
My full name is Samantha Taylor Miller, I am a criminal justice major. I am from Little Falls, New York. I currently live in North Hall with my roommate, who is also my close friend from high school. Although Little Falls is only about thirty minutes from UC, I am glad I chose to live on campus because I have met so many new people as a result of living in the resident's hall.
I will not stop until I make the world a safer and better place. Maybe it'll be done by me being a prosecutor and help bring justice to the families who have been hurt. Maybe I’ll be a police officer and work my way up to a detective, or maybe
This Gruesome Crime Your Honor, at this time I am urged to ask you why you are crying for these two men. Let us not forget the afternoon of May 21. After six months of planning the perfect crime, Mr. Leopold and Mr. Lobe coaxed the young Bobby Franks into their car while he was walking home from school. Once Bobby had been lured into the vehicle, Loeb bludgeoned the poor child over the head multiple times with a chisel. After finding that unsuccessful Loeb dragged Bobby into the back seat and forced a sock down his throat and waited for him to finally suffocate. After the murder, the two men drove the body to Wolf Lake where they poured hydrochloric acid over Bobby's face, abdomen, and genitals. Once they mutilated and dismembered the body, they discarded Bobbys remains in a drain, and then they drove home to write a ransom note and spend the evening playing a leisurely game of cards. And why? Why would these two scholars do something so sinister? Because they were bored. Because they wanted a rush. Because they could. Your Honor, do you still sympathize with these two murders?

the cops could never catch up to me. In March of 1965 before riding around George two guys decided they wanted to race me. After dropping my wife off, I told them my friend and I would meet them East of town and I started at where the funeral
Then it all hit me, i had been the one who set the fire, the match that i lit inside the house and thrown to the floor sparked up this hell. A wave of guilt had hit me as if the devil himself had made me his child. I cry for hours, i couldn't bare this feeling , i had lost my soul to evil, i had become who i most feared, and forever shall he live in my shadow until the end of my days. In the midst of my dispare and pain i hear a voice within me. “My child, don’t feel guilty, for it was no more than an accident, i shall forgive you and give you the strength to carry on.” My heart beats once more, my mind has becom clear, i had a connection with my savior, God. I then knew that God should stand by my side, and that this was nothing more than a teaching. Everything had happened for a reason, for a positive one, due to this tragic catastrophe i had become one with god and heaven and his arms and doors would soon welcome me back to my daughter in law and my grandchildren. It had all came back to me. Forever shall i remember this event, and forever shall it live in my life, but it had awakened something that could cope the pain, i had finally awakened from my slumber in
Organized crime is often described similarily by groups like government, the press and popular opinion. This similar definition is described through the knowledge people have gained from pop-culture movies, television shows, magazines, novels and stories from newspaper articles. Often these newspaper articles are written by authors who have little more knowledge on the structure of organized crime then what their favorite Sopranos episode dictates. It is extremely rare in today's society that somone who has an opinion on organized crime (which is almost everyone) has gained this opinion through first-hand experience (Finckenauer, p. 63). The problem with this narrow view of organized crime is that it fails to encompass the real
I like that you have seen the show in its entirety because your perspective was more knowledgable of the event and circumstances then mine own. I think it's interesting that this particular serial killer is never mentioned in the show because with this knowledge it makes the transmedia assessment slightly easier for me. I think it falls under chewy and east coast especially since the ARG to my knowledge was deactivated before the premier of the show. Either way, as you suggest, I think it wouldn't have been as big of a success without the notoriety of the show.
