    On feminist criminology

    In response to our class lecture on feminist criminology, I think that a main reason why women are not in the spot light is because we are just begining to have a stand in society. Women are able to do more things like work, vote, hold powerful positions in government and in occupations. I think it is only a matter of time before women become more dominant.

    krista -- but what would adler, klein and pollock's reactions be? do they think it's just a "matter of time" before women become dominant?

    On feminist criminology

    just along the lines of women and crime we talked in class about the economic means of single parents and how they may be forced to committ crimes in order to provide for their families... If the Cj system would do a better tracking down fathers who do not pay child support that might lower the crime rates among single mothers. They would have an increase in income and would no longer need to resort to crime to pay the bills.

    heidi -- good point!

    On the two juvenile case scenarios

    when i read those scenarios that we discussed in class it made me realize how hard it is too make decisions about troubled youth. i know each case is different but it seems to me that what these kids are lacking is attention. if they just had someone that cared about them i think there whole perspective would change. so i think the big brother, big sister idea is great. it's just hard to find people in this world today that are caring.

    caroline -- you're correct that these aren't easy decisions to make and with life-changing impact on all involved, especially the kid.

    On the square puzzle

    i thought that the square project was cool. i really made me think especially when i got a square one way and i needed to come up with another way i really was stuck in a paradigm.

    On the square puzzle

    i really liked the paper square paradigm shift thingy we did today in class. its amazing how frustrating one little thing like that can be. i would like to try something without seeing it first to see if i would do it differently. you should try half the class with seeing it and half without!

    tim and julia -- glad you liked today's puzzle and how it relates to fellman. see how we get stuck in our own little paradigms?

    On the square puzzle

    Susan, I wanted to try and relate yesterday's puzzle with everyday life. Today on 620 WTMJ the host was talking about identity theft and noted that people usually throw away credit card and bank statements without shredding them. He then went on to say that people do not think that others will actually go through their garbage and pull out this information. My point is, like the puzzle once we see something in a certain way it is hard for us to see anything else. Just as I saw the two separate squares, these victims saw garbage.

    phil -- an interesting analogy!

    On the documentary, "Chicano!"

    i really enjoyed the film on chicanos. i think there are a lot of people who don't know much about the history of mexicans. they don't realize a great portion of the u.s. was mexico. you hear a lot about the american indians, but the fact that the u.s. was mexico seems to have been forgotten. it seems to me that the politicians concentrate on keeping more mexicans from coming into the country than any other nationality.(besides the arabs now) what they don't realize is they have more reason to be here than any other. people always say "why are they so many mexicans in the u.s.?" well may if the ignorant people of this country took a history class, they would understand why!

    caroline -- i'm glad you liked the documentary which is only the first of four-parts. And, yes -- latino/a-americans are one of the fastest growing populations in this country!

    On the documentary, "Chicano!"

    The "Chicano" video was very informative. You're right. Too often we focus on race relations between whites and blacks, but there are so many ethnic groups that have suffered at the hands of whites. A man in "Chicano" said that " war is more here in the struggle for justice than in Vietnam." It's interesting how our government sent troops to fight for another peoples' freedom, and yet, so many people in the United States were so oppressed. Akela's commentary (on Habermas) regarding this video was right on. Many history books make whites out to be all powerful heroes - able to conquer this or that. But at what expense did whites do all of these things? Culture Conflict Theory is beginning to make more sense to me now.

    kim -- yes, we need to mindful of the experiences, histories, and cultures of other peoples of color. [special note: akela's comments are on the previous week's lecture commentaries]
