Learning Goal: I’m working on a criminal justice writing question and need the explanation and answer to help me learn.

Watch several reality-based shows such as Cops and keep a record of the following information for each crime/event. You can use live T.V. or any streaming service ( Netflix/ Hulu/ YouTube) etc.

  • The gender and race of the suspects
  • The gender and race of the police officers
  • The type of crime
  • The products being advertised during these programs


  • Answer the questions to consider listed below in a 3-paragraph response.
  • You may upload your response as an MS Word compatible file to this assignment link on the posted due date on your syllabus.

Questions to Consider

  1. What is the predominant race of the suspects?
  2. Do you notice any difference in the behavior of the suspects and police officers when they are both of the same race? Of different races? Of different genders?
  3. What types of crimes are featured? Does one type of crime predominate?
  4. Are the products advertised during these programs directed toward any specific subgroup of the population? Are they age- or gender-based?
