Mass Incarceration: Who is Victim? – Criminology Essay

For my Criminology Essay, I would like the topic to be: Mass Incarceration, Minorities, and how it affects children with parents behind bars. My professor’s instructions are “Think about the informal social control that occurs within the field. Include also a discussion of the ethnic, racial, socioeconomic, and cultural differences within criminal justice and how this changes or modifies the way in which the “control” is applied. Think about the differences between policing and punishing. The more narrow your topic, the easier it will be to write – and read – your paper. Discuss the current state of criminal justice relating to your topic, and then spend some time discussing the future.” MUST BE AT LEAST 5 PAGES OF CONTENT, NOT INCLUDING THE TITLE PAGE AND REFERENCE PAGE. You must use APA formatting. Below I have attached a few relevant resources. Feel free to add as many more as you need.
