Abstract: Many criminal justice students aspire to work as professionals within the criminal justice system after graduation. More than students pursuing other majors on campus, criminal justice students may be employed in a position to influence or implement criminal justice operations and policies while working in the system. Therefore, it is important to know how criminal justice students form their attitudes about the criminal justice system. In order to acquire this knowledge, there has been many previous research efforts aimed at answering two questions: (1) Do criminal justice majors have more or less punitive attitudes about criminal justice policies and the punishment of offenders than other majors do? (2) What factors are associated with punitive attitudes, if criminal justice majors are more punitive than other majors are?
While many previous research studies have been conducted to reach a definitive conclusion about the effects of criminal justice education on students’ punitive attitudes, most of these studies have relied only on the data collected from traditional undergraduate students. To our knowledge, there has been no empirical research using a nontraditional undergraduate student sample.

"Political justice since seattle: The intersection of the U.S. criminal justice system and global justice activism" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Marriott Hotel, Loews Philadelphia Hotel, Philadelphia, PA, Aug 12, 2005 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-04-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p19723_index.html>

Abstract: This paper examines the shifting landscape of the intersection of global justice activism and the U.S. criminal justice system since the Seattle n30 WTO protests (30 November 1999). The National Lawyers Guild, drawing on 35 years of observation of First Amendment activity, concludes that post-Seattle protest policing manifests “a noticeable shift from reactive law enforcement to preemptive law enforcement.” Global justice activism is operationalized here to include: opposition to the international institutions such as the World Bank and WTO, anti-corporate campaigns associated with the anti-globalization movement, and movements which predate this movement but have become involved with it. The criminal justice system is operationalized here to include relevant laws, policing, investigation, prosecution, defense of activists, and lawsuits fighting back on all these aspects of the law (political litigation). Obviously this is a lot of territory to cover, and this article aims to simply describe the landscape, laying the groundwork for future analyses of each area in the above list.

Abstract: The researcher was interested in the impact of gender on the imposition of sanctions for misdemeanor offenses in Tippecanoe County, Indiana. After establishing specific criteria, he collected 95 cases from the public file court records. Several statistical analyses were performed with the data which yielded insight on the perceptions of gender in the criminal justice system of a conservative rural county in the US. The data provided interesting theoretical allusions as to the attitudes relevant actors in the criminal justice system have towards the genders. Findings and limitations are discussed at the end of the project.

Abstract: This paper looks at the values inscribed in the language of transitional justice documents. I argue that there is a gap in values between those of these documents and those of contemporary human rights discourse.
