Discussion Questions: In the Troy Davis case do you feel this individual should have been executed? If you were the deciding factor in the case what would your ruling be in the case and why? Please base your answers on the facts of the case only!!!! Are racial minorities who are represented by public defenders or assigned counsel treated more harshly than those represented by private attorneys? If you were an African American, Hispanic, or Native American defendant and could choose whether to be represented by a public defender or a private attorney, which would you choose? Explain why. Racial minorities comprise a very small proportion of the lawyers and judges in the United States. What accounts for this? What difference, if any, would it make if more of the lawyers representing criminal defendants were racial minorities? In Gregg v.

Does the empirical evidence support or refute this conclusion?

Week 4

CJA 423 Week 4 Individual Assignment Cultural Diversity in Criminal Justice


Paper Finalize your 1,750- to 2,450-word paper on the topic you selected during Week Two. Include three references from scholarly journals, trade publications, or other sources from the Online Library Major Article Database. Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines. Utilize at least three references, and format them according to APA guidelines.

Discussion Questions: The procedures adopted by the Department of Justice to govern death penalty decisions in federal cases —the death penalty protocol—are designed to ensure that the federal capital sentencing process is fair and equitable. However, studies conducted by the Department of Justice revealed that racial minorities were overrepresented in federal capital criminal cases and among those sentenced to death in U.S. District Courts. How did the Justice Department interpret these findings? Refer to http://www.usdoj.gov/dag/pubdoc/deathpenaltystudy.htm. Why did the American Civil Liberties Union conclude that the 2001 study was “fatally flawed”? Refer to http://www.aclu.org/capital/unequal/10571prs20010614.html In Gregg v. Georgia, the Supreme Court assumed that racial discrimination would not be a problem under the guided-discretion statutes enacted in the wake of the Furman decision. Does the empirical evidence support or refute this conclusion? Do the few executions of Whites for crimes against African Americans adequately demonstrate that the application of the death penalty is not arbitrary or discriminatory? Do you agree or disagree with the so-called Marshall Hypothesis—that is, that the average citizen who knew “all the facts presently available regarding capital punishment would … find it shocking to his conscience and sense of justice?” (Furman v. Georgia).
