Assignment Details
In 1961, the search of a residence of Dollree Mapp was done by police with no proper warrant to conduct the search. The search resulted in Mapp eventually being charged and found guilty of possession of pornography and sentenced to seven years in prison. Mapp appealed her conviction and it resulted in the Supreme Court reinforcing the Exclusionary Rule in their decision under the Fourth Amendment.
This video examines the Mapp v. Ohio case (The Federalist Society, 2020):
Using your reading assignment, the content above, and what you have learned about the Exclusionary Rule, answer the following questions:
Explain why you believe or do not believe that exceptions to the Exclusionary Rule should be made.
Select 3 exceptions to the Exclusionary Rule, and cite your reasons for their validity and any reason why the exceptions may be in error if you believe any of them are in error.

Research Paper Assignment Instructions
Overview
The Research
Paper will provide you with an opportunity to learn more about a topic of
particular interest regarding information security systems. The technical focus
and level of research for the chosen topic must be well-planned and researched.
With that in mind, be sure to choose a focused topic to ensure in-depth
research.
This
Research Paper will allow you to be exposed to technical literature for
further exploration of the body of research as a whole, as well as enable you
to practice navigating around it. Thus, a well-written paper will show your
ability, not only to research, but also to communicate via the written word.
How well your document conforms to the required form and format will
demonstrate your attention to detail and instruction.
Instructions
Research topic:
Research
some of the best sources of digital evidence for child abuse and exploitation,
domestic violence, and gambling according to the National Institute of Justice.
Research commercial forensic packages that you think you would use for such
crimes. What
advantages are offered by commercial forensic packages? Are there any
disadvantages to using them? If so, what are they?
Each paper must:
· Have a length of 2,750–3,250
words (Note: the word count does not include words used in figures, tables, diagrams,
or the bibliography);
· Be formatted
according to current APA format;
· Include figures,
tables, or diagrams where appropriate (Note: the words in the figures, tables,
or diagrams are not part of the word count);
· Include an in-text
citation whenever the source to which you refer is used;
· Attribute quotes to
the source obtained, but quotes must not make up a significant portion of the
body of the text;
· Have in-text citations
for each reference on the bibliography; and
· Include at least 3
references in addition to the course textbook and the Bible.
Each paper must
include these 4 sections:
1.
Research
Topics:
What specifically
do you want to learn about or prove as you do this research?
List the research
topics that you included as at least 3–4 bullets in the Research Paper Outline
and Bibliography. Following each bullet, discuss the research topic in detail.
Note: your paper must be focused to allow in-depth research. In this first
section, the research topics are stated as bullets to help sharpen your focus
and to ensure that your focus is maintained as the paper develops.
2.
Literature
Search Results:
What do others say
about this subject?
This section will
show the depth of your research. All entries in your bibliography must be cited
at least once in this section. When detailing your literature search results,
each declarative idea/concept (not each sentence) must be cited. You are
stating other authors’ ideas and concepts and must say from where they come.
Often this is the largest section of the paper. The time to state your own
ideas will come in the following section.
3.
Conclusions:
What have you
learned from your research?
The purpose of
this section is not simply to reiterate the previous sections, but for
thoughtful reflection. Now is the time to state your own conclusions. In this
section, each of the specific research questions you selected in the Research
Paper Outline and Bibliography must be restated and directly answered, even if your
conclusion for an objective is uncertain. Doing so will help ensure that you
have addressed all your original research questions. However, this does not
mean you are limited in this section to only answering your initial research
questions. More often than not, your research will open new lines of thought
that should be discussed. Most poor grades are earned because this section does
not include your conclusions, but only repeats data from the previous sections.
4.
Bibliography:
Your paper must include
at least 5 citations, 2 of which must be the course textbook and the Bible.
Both the in-text citations and the accompanying bibliographic information must
be in current APA format. You must cite professionally edited, peer-reviewed
sources. They can be solely Internet-based or from print sources. Do not cite encyclopedias
(online or otherwise) or articles from user-edited sources such as Wikipedia (however,
this type of resource can be used for initial, uncited research which will
often lead you to acceptable sources). You must use resources with a specific
technical focus on your topic.
Note:
Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism
tool.

Mock Crime Scene Note: This activity will be ongoing throughout the next several

Mock Crime Scene
Note: This activity will be ongoing throughout the next several units. You will need to refer back to the information you gather here for later activities, so be sure to save any notes you take.
You get the call on a Tuesday afternoon. Dr. Fisher, a famous surgeon, has been found dead in his high-rise apartment. So far, the police aren’t sure if it was a murder or a suicide. The coroner has removed the body, and police have secured the crime scene and dusted for prints. Now it’s your turn! You’ll be using your forensic knowledge to photograph the scene, take notes, and collect evidence. With a little luck, you just might be able to solve the mystery . . .
In this activity, you’ll begin investigating the mock crime scene. Using the instructions below, have a friend or family member set up the crime scene for you—or set it up yourself. Be sure to get permission from an adult in your home before setting up as some of the ‘evidence’ may be messy! You’ll need the following materials:
Masking tape
Post-it notes
Brown paper bags
Plastic sandwich bags
Ruler or measuring tape
Dark hair sample (can use dark-colored paper or thread)
Light hair sample (can use light-colored paper or thread)
A piece of notebook paper
White powder (e.g. flour, baking soda)
A glass
A table and chair
An object representing a pool of blood (e.g. a red paper cut-out)
An object representing a gun (e.g. cardboard or paper)
A small object to represent a spent shell casing from a bullet
Set the crime scene up in an available room or space, as follows:
Put the glass on the table, in easy reach of the chair.
Scatter some of the white powder near the glass, on the table.
Put the dark hair sample on the chair.
Put the piece of notebook paper on the floor next to the table.
On the floor beside the chair, use the masking tape to mark the outline of a body.
Put the gun at the hand of the body outline.
Put the shell casing far off to the left.
Put the light hair sample near the door.
Put the red paper cut-out representing the blood on the floor near the head of the body outline.
Now, it’s time to investigate. Here’s what you’ll need to do.
Use the post-it notes to tag each piece of evidence you find. Be sure to put the post-it note next to the evidence, not right on top of it! Number each note.
Photograph the scene using your cell phone or a digital camera. Take three types of photos:
“Overview” photos of the entire scene (at least four, with one facing toward each wall).
“Intermediate” photos showing evidence in context (at least six, covering all the pieces of evidence).
“Close-up” photos of the evidence (at least nine, one for each piece of evidence). Take these photos with the ruler in the photo next to the evidence, to show scale.
Upload these photos to your PC, so you can submit them as evidence. For each photo, attach a note that includes the name of the case (Dr. Fisher Case), the item(s) shown in the photo with evidence number(s), and the type of photo (overview, intermediate, or close-up).
Inspect each piece of evidence and make a brief note of what it is, where it is located, and any other details. (At least one sentence each)
Using the ruler or a measuring tape, take at least the following measurements:
Diameter of the pool of blood at its widest point
Length of the body outline
Distance between the body and the table/chair
Distance between the chair and the glass sitting on the table
Distance between the shell casing and the gun
Distance between the piece of notebook paper and the table
Add these measurements to your crime scene notes.
Collect the evidence. Use brown paper bags for larger items, like the gun and glass. Use plastic bags for smaller items like hair and powder. Assume that blood samples have already been swabbed and collected. On each bag, write “EVIDENCE,” the name of the case (“Dr. Fisher Case”), the evidence item, and its number. Take photos of your bagged evidence to show that you’ve collected it and that it’s ready for the crime lab. Be as detailed as possible.
