Discussion 1: Patterns of Crime and Punishment

In the period just before the American Civil War those in the U.S. criminal justice system were focused on the ability to handle those who had been deemed wayward and incorrigible. With the rapid influx of immigrants and rural Americans to the inner city, crime began to express a new reality. Given that many of today’s crime challenges are beholden to the urban context, it is ever more important to understand the roots of this problem. As such, there are two questions that must be discussed: What were the patterns of crime and punishment during this period? What fueled the Civil War?

For this Discussion, you consider crime and punishment before the Civil War and any existing current violent trends that can be traced back to it.

Post : Explain the patterns of crime and punishment before the Civil War. Explain the impact these patterns had on current violent trends. What kinds of violent trends exist in your region? Are there international comparisons you can draw from the Civil War example?

Discussion 2: Domestic Terrorism

Domestic terrorist groups have been a part of the fabric of this nation for many decades, from Timothy McVeigh and Ted Kaczynski to the Boston Marathon bombers. These all fit the definition of domestic terrorists. The first, most recognized domestic terrorist group though is the Ku Klux Klan, also known by the moniker “KKK.” The KKK was an organization created to instill fear into the hearts of free Black Americans after the Civil War, and was used as a means of social control to keep them in line. As a response to the new Southern reality after the Civil War, the KKK provided a great challenge to the U.S. criminal justice system. For the first time, the government had to protect newly identified free Blacks from the disgruntled Southern Whites and their attempts to undermine the redresses afforded by the government.

For this Discussion, you provide examples of domestic terrorism during the Civil War period. Watch the media piece on the KKK. Explain how these examples relate to domestic terrorism as we know it today. Finally, consider the influence of domestic terrorism on the U.S. criminal justice system.

Post  your definition of domestic terrorism. Describe two examples of domestic terrorism during the Civil War. Explain how these examples relate to domestic terrorism as it exists today. Provide an example. Explain one way domestic terrorism today has influenced changes in the criminal justice system. Use a scholarly article to support your response.
