For this discussion board, consider the issue of property crime. You are at a meeting of some law enforcement officials. Some of them argue simply that drug crime is driving property crime. Other non-law enforcement participants say that, since police have taken resources away from property crime enforcement and have given them to drug enforcement, they have negated a deterrence for property crime. Those that previously committed property crime are doing more of it, and those who weren’t doing it are more tempted to do so. Additionally, they argue that selective drug enforcement has driven up the cost of drugs thus increasing the occurrence of property crime. Consequently, property crime is driven by police resources, not drug crime. In your thread, take a position and defend it using peer-reviewed journal articles or other scholarly works.

Submit your thread by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Thursday and submit your replies by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday.

 

 

Discussion Board Forum Instructions

There are 4 Discussion Board Forums completed in this course. You are required to create a thread in response to the provided prompt for each forum. Each thread must be at least 500 words with at least 2 citations in current APA format and must demonstrate course-related knowledge.

 

In addition to the thread, you are required to reply to 2 other classmates’ threads. Each reply must be at least 200 words with at least 1 citation in current APA format. Responding to a classmate’s post requires both the addition of new ideas and analysis. A particular point made by the classmate must be addressed and built upon by your analysis in order to move the conversation forward. Thus, the response post is a rigorous assignment that requires you to build upon posts to develop deeper and more thorough discussion of the ideas introduced in the initial posts. As such, reply posts that merely affirm, restate or unprofessionally quarrel with the previous post(s) and fail to make a valuable, substantive contribution to the discussion will receive appropriate point deductions.

 

Acceptable sources include peer-reviewed journal articles from the Liberty University’s Online Library (ProQuest, ERIC, EBSCO, JSTOR) and other scholarly works to include volumes or books (as well as Scripture).

 

This course utilizes the Post-First feature in all Discussion Board Forums. This means you will only be able to read and interact with your classmates’ threads after you have submitted your thread in response to the provided prompt. For additional information on Post-First, click here for a tutorial.

Submit your threads by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Thursday of the assigned modules/weeks. Submit your replies by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of the same modules/weeks except for Module/Week 8. For Module/Week 8, submit your replies by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Friday.
