The due process model is seen to focus on the suspect whereas the crime control model focuses on the society. This paper analyzes these two models and based on the rate of crime in the society, makes recommendations as to which is the best model in criminal justice. The principle in law that one is innocent until proven guilty has created much discourse. There are those who feel that the moment that one is arrested, there is reasonable belief that they committed the crime. However, there are those who feel that just as the principle states, one is, and should be taken as a victim and the outcome could be either way: guilty or not guilty.
The blunt facts of mass incarceration for criminal offenders in United are very well known as they house the world’s largest prison population (Raphael & Stoll 2011). As of March 2010, the incarceration population in United States are as high as 2.3 million, making them the world leader in incarcerating its citizens. The jurisdiction believes that prison has an important role to play in protecting the community against offenders and in punishing them for their crime (Foucault, 2009). However, research and evidence have shown that the use of imprisonment has many disadvantages. The rate of growth in criminal justice system has slowed in recent years and the call for prison reforms have largely fallen on deaf ears (Raphael & Stoll, 2011).
Do they shred any paperwork or mail containing sensitive personal information before disposing of it? If so, how is it disposed of? By and large, identity theft is a faceless crime, one that many victims can feel powerless to both prevent and prosecute. Coupled with the helplessness and emotional toll, many victims have had their relationships with family members, friends, co-workers, and even romantic partners affected by identity theft. The anguish that identity theft and fraud can cause in its victims can lead to overwhelming sadness and to some extreme cases even thought of suicide.
The criminal profiling is based on the deduction of specific evidentiary patterns, observation of physical evidence, and the extrapolation of those patterns into a detailed description of the behavioral and psychological features of a possible perpetrator. Some
Those brothels are running in a organized manner. More often police personnel are found to be directly or indirectly involved for monetary gain or for otherwise purposes. Sometimes politician are also involved. For the above reasons It is encouraging to notice that, there is an emerging trend of punishing the brothel owners and exploiters. However, investigations have to go beyond brothels, which are the most obvious sites of crime to reach the source of trafficking and to expose trafficking routes, crime syndicates and gangs involved etc.

Both Burgees and Akers used B.F. Skinners theory to create the classical and operant conditioning of discriminative stimuli. (Matsueda, Et. Al, 1988) They conclude that definitions of crime serve as discriminative stimuli. Under Sutherlands theory the individual must learn the skills to commit a discriminative crime. An example of this would be if a parent were racist then the child will more than likely grow up with a biased opinion of a certain group or culture.
Large proportions of news coverage are on crime (Bissler & Conners, 2012). Most news television and newspaper coverage tend to be on crime or deviant behaviour. However, the accuracy of these crime reported by the media are often over-represented. Ditton & duffy, (1983) conducted a research study and found that 46% of media reports covered mostly sexual and violent crime, but in actuality, only 3% of these recorded crimes were legitimate so big disparity between what is real and what is over exaggerated. Bissler & Conners, (2012) stated that personal crimes such as sexual and violent crimes were 36 times more likely to be reported by the media than property, inchoate and statuary crimes.
Introduction In an era of increasing crime rate, the sociologist and criminologist are concern with the factors affecting criminal activity. It is now becoming a worrying phenomenon to the policymakers and society since it causes sudden increase of loss of lives, property and misery to the country.

In this study, however, racial and ethnic group are being the interest on its relation with criminal activity.
Chapter 1: Introduction 1.1 Background of study With a rise in terrorism, gruesome murders, savage rapes, vehicular manslaughter and mass murders, what will be the appropriate punishment for the offenders? When a person commits an offence, that person violates his or her obligation to the state. Therefore, it is justified that the state deprives the offender of its civil rights so that they do not obtain an unfair advantage over those people who are law abiding. Nevertheless Lakoff (1996) gives an insight about the fact that punishment is varied upon views about the moral system of a person. The punishment given to those criminals should be proportionate to the crime committed because new terror groups have emerged, putting the world into jeopardy.
