What were the results from the study?

Annotation Writing Assignment
For this assignment, you will write an annotation of one of the three empirical research studies you intend to use for your capstone paper. Within the Research Section of the capstone paper, you must summarize three primary research studies (See my research paper for the 3 primary research studies) that are relevant to your policy/topic. This assignment will assist you with the summarization process. Your selected research study must be conducted in the United States and related to your thesis statement (Curfews can save the lives of Juveniles and keep them out of trouble.). Note the study must be a primary research study published in a peer-reviewed journal. A primary research study should contain the following sections: Introduction/literature review, method/methodology, sample/participants, data/results/findings, and discussion/conclusion. Primary studies are research studies where data have been collected and analyzed by the researchers. If no data and/or results are provided, it is not a primary research study.
For this assignment, you will read the selected study and answer the eight general questions for writing an annotation as covered in Unit 6 of the text and within this week’s module. Responses should be paraphrased in your own words and written for an academic audience who has no knowledge of the study. After answering the eight questions, you will write a summary of your responses in paragraph format to complete a 600-word (or more) annotation of the primary research study.
Learning Outcomes
By completing this assignment, you will learn to write an annotation, focus on the pertinent information included within a primary research study (e.g., sample, data collected, results), and interpret the findings from the research to be used within the research section of your capstone paper.
Part 1
First, you will complete the General Questions for Writing an Annotation for your selected research study. Answer the eight questions below in a Word document and make sure to include the questions as well as the answers (I will deduct points if the questions are not included). Remember to paraphrase the information IN YOUR OWN WORDS. Do not copy and paste directly from the research study. The use of direct quotes should also be avoided.
In your Word document, provide the following information:
• Your thesis statement and a brief explanation as to how the selected study is related to your policy and your thesis statement.
• Reference information for the primary research study: Authors’ last name(s), publication year, study title, journal name, vol./issue number, pages numbers, doi or url.
• Answers to the general questions for writing an annotation.
General Questions for Writing an Annotation
1. What type of source is this?
2. Who were the researchers?
3. What was the purpose of the study? What were the research questions?
4. How did the researchers obtain their data? What methodology was used to obtain and analyze data?
5. What were the results from the study? What did the researchers find?
6. What did the researchers conclude based on the findings from the study?
7. What were the limitations of the study? Specifically, what factors may have influenced the researchers’ findings?
8. What suggestions did the researchers make for conducting future research?
Part 2
Using your responses from Part 1 of the assignment, write an annotation of the primary research study. Start the annotation on a new page within your Word document. Remember that you are writing to an academic audience who has no knowledge of the study so make sure to be as specific as possible. Please refer to the sample annotation in this week’s module as a guide and follow the rules outlined in Unit 6 of the Write & Wrong text for writing an annotation.
• Formatting: Times New Roman 12-point font; double-spaced; left alignment, 1″ page margins, and include page numbers in the upper right header.
• The annotation should be written in essay format using full sentences.
• Paraphrase in your own words (be careful not to change the meaning).
• Proofread for mechanics and grammar.
• Length: Annotations must be at least two (2) full double-spaced pages with a minimum of 600 words (excluding Part 1 of the assignment).

What factors have been identified as important correlates of discretionary decisions?

I’m doing my essay on
This is my topic this is the area I have to cover over in about I should say American police exercise tremendous discretionary powers in their interactions with citizens. This discretion creates variance in the outcomes of police encounters with citizens.
What factors have been identified as important correlates of discretionary decisions? Are these factors generally considered to be “legal” or “extra legal?” What strategies might be adopted to reduce the variation in outcomes of police-citizen encounters?

Consider how that type of pattern can be useful in a crime scene reconstruction:

All the instructions are in the link down please follow the instructions carefully.
For research don’t use wikipedia or Random forensic blogs or websites.
You will be expected to do some research and locate external references—make sure your references are reliable and scholarly (no Wikipedia/HowStuffWorks/Random Forensic Science Blogs or Websites). Use Google Scholar and the Library to locate scholarly journal articles (for example, the Library has access to the Journal of Forensic Sciences).

Below there is a table in which you have been assigned a type of physical pattern evidence. Consider how that type of pattern can be useful in a crime scene reconstruction:

First, define and describe your pattern type.
Second, explain when your pattern type may be encountered at a crime scene and how it may be deposited.
Third, explain how your pattern type can be analyzed in a forensic science laboratory and how your pattern type can be interpreted when reconstructing events.
For the Table since my last name starts with letter U. So my topic will be Blood.

1. Understand and appreciate the Criminal Procedure Ideal of balancing crime control and individual privacy as it applies to searches for evidence.
2. Understand that searches hardly ever require warrants, except when officers want to search homes. Know how officers can execute warrants to search homes “reasonably.”
3. Know that search warrants require both particularity and probable cause. Understand that, with some exceptions, officers have to knock, announce their presence, and give occupants an opportunity to open the door, before forcible entry of homes. Appreciate the radical changes in the use of search warrants in the Digital Age.
4. Understand that the knock-and-talk technique is a powerful investigative tool that SCOTUS has not yet interrogated.
5. Know and appreciate that the millions of searches incident to arrest are reasonable without warrants, because they protect officers, prevent escape, and preserve evidence. Understand the scope of incident searches, and know the types of crime and circumstances that can be subject to these searches.
6. Know that the millions of consent searches allow officers to search without warrants or probable cause. Appreciate that without consent, officers couldn’t conduct the search.
7. Know how to determine the scope of consent; when consent can be withdrawn; and when one person can consent for another. Appreciate the Criminal Procedure ideal of evidence-based decision making and the empirical research of consent searches.
8. Understand that the searches of vehicles without warrants are constitutional because of their mobility and the reduced expectation of privacy in vehicles. Know that searches of containers and persons within the vehicles without warrants are “reasonable” as long as they’re based on probable cause.
9. Understand that emergency searches are based on the idea that it’s sometimes impractical to require officers to obtain warrants before they search. Know the four major types of emergency searches.

Writer’s Choice

Please answer the following:
1.Describe a moment or scene in the film that you found particularly affirming, challenging, intriguing, or moving. What was it about that scene that was especially compelling for you?
2. The documentary argues that while media affects everyone, media affects trans communities more than cis (non-trans) communities. Why is the media more important in creating beliefs about trans communities (among both trans and non-trans people) than in creating beliefs about cis (non-trans) communities. What does the media need to do with representation in order to support safety, wellbeing, and decriminalization of the trans community? (Decriminalization would mean not treating people as if they are fundamentally criminal rule-breakers who deserve to be watched, controlled, and punished).
3. Bianca Leigh describes having a radar that distinguishes between joking that signals affinity/inclusion and being the butt of the joke. How do you tell the difference between good-natured teasing among friends and making fun of someone in a way that is hurtful? How might your feelings about a joke change if you have a personal connection to the thing being joked about?
4. What do the filmmakers mean when emphasizing the point that trans visibility in the media both helps the trans community and at the same time can make the community more vulnerable to harm? What is needed to prevent this vulnerabilization of trans communities?
5. Jen Richards notes that “a lot of people will look at trans women’s performance of femininity and see it as somehow reinforcing the worst patriarchal stereotypes of women.” Richards goes on to explain that trans women need to go “hyper-feminine” to protect themselves as a matter of survival–it’s their “armor.” Why do you think the performance of femininity in particular is so heavily scrutinized? Why, in particular, do people question trans women for presenting in a hyper-feminine way?
6. What does the PowerPoint explain about the hypercriminalization of trans communities?
7. What does the PowerPoint argue about police interactions with trans communities and trans communities of color in particular?
8. Laverne Cox describes the essence of critical distance when she says, “When you are a member of a marginalized community, most of film and television is not made with you in mind. And so if you are a person of color, an LGBTQ person, a person who’s an immigrant, a person with a disability, you develop a critical awareness because you understand that the images that you’re seeing are not your life.” Are there places in your own life where you have gained important insight from having critical distance? In what ways can being able to look in from the outside be beneficial? When is being an “outsider” simply a harmful function of discrimination or exclusion?
9. Finally, list three new terms you learned and what they mean from the For Harriet site. If you already new them all, good on you! List your three favorites and what they mean.
