    Default Help needed - essay question help

    Hi everyone

    I have to write and essay discussing the way the Australian criminal justice system is shaped by society

    I have politicians, the media and the over/underpolicing of different groups

    I have just had the biggest mind blank! Can anyone think of any others? Thanks in advance!

    Internal policies in corrective services.
    The public (they contribute to politicians 'ideas' with their outcries)
    Certain crimes.... For example Skye's Law/Megans law (I know Megans is American but still shaped our CJS)
    Certain offenders... Whole policies have been formed out of some responses to supervision on probation and parole
    Judicial decisions an landmark legal cases....
    Diversionary programs for eg NGO's ie MERIT's use prior to sentencing
    I could probably go on and on forever- does that help?
    Good luck with your essay!

    Cultural norms, religion (laws based on christian beliefs)

    Im assuming you have had lectures on the topic? Go through the lecture slides to get an idea of what the lecturer is after

    So from sociological perspective? Have you looked at Marx and class conflict? Weber and his extension of Marx's theories.
    Labeling theory (Becker).
    Wealth, power and status.

    Have you looked at deviance as well? How that is defined historically, and culturally?
    What may be illegal in one cultural/time may be perfectly acceptable in another.
    Defining "norms" of what is acceptable in any given society.

    You could mention how Campbell Newman in qld is getting in strife over having a dig at the courts being too lenient on bikies... Or how the public outcry over Jill Meaghers murder is helping to change things in Victoria ..
