It does all of this while still having all the elements a well-written book needs. Capote understood how to make his point in a way that would ‘get’ to readers. It is hard to understand how Bryson would come to a conclusion that the story is nothing but a true story. It is much more than that, and will not only inform readers about the infamous murders, but also give a little insight into the human mind. Whether you agree or not, is up to you, but there is no denying the hostility behind the murders and how two human minds thought it was worth
Prosecutors can sometimes get away with misconduct as it is extremely difficult to prove that misconduct had actually taken place. Often times the prosecutor is viewed as being on the side of justice and as a result it is difficult for the defendant (who is accused of a crime) to turn the tide against the prosecution. Although during the trial both the defense as well as the judge may report a prosecutor for misconduct, this rarely happens as these reports are often dismissed. This is because as long as the prosecutions misconduct does not affect the outcome of the case, then it is tolerated, meaning that a prosecutor can harass a witness or the defendant so long as the harassment did not have anything to do with the outcome of the trial. The fact that the prosecutor works in the interests of the state can be seen as the underlying factor here.
Harry develops a “code” which consists of a formal set of rules used to enact justice on criminals who have evaded punishment by finding loopholes in the justice system. As Dexter grows into adulthood, he continues to kill by “Harry’s Code”. Yet his passion for enforcing death creates disconnect from the real Dexter Morgan and the societal norms that he is required to abide by in able to avoid detection. These conflicting interests develop an interesting and entertaining psychological cocktail. I believe that Dexter Morgan suffers from Antisocial Personality Disorder.
The criminal justice system relies heavily on eyewitness identification for investigating and prosecuting crimes in that, it may be the only evidence present for identifying criminals in certain cases (Wells & Olson, 2002). The strong weight given to eye witness identifications is nonetheless a matter of concern as it eye witness identifications have been demonstrated to be flawed, even when witness confidence is high. Experience has shown that the convincing and sincere witness can often be mistaken. Memon (2008) explains where eye-witness testimonies have been greatly unreliable; where Jean Charles de Menezes was shot by police as a result of mistaken identity. According to eye-witnesses he was described as suspicious, jumped over a ticket barrier and was wearing a wearing a bulky jack supposedly concealing a device.
It seems, as evidenced through his writing, that he whole-heartedly believes the police code of silence to be a detriment, not only to criminals, but to the officers themselves. The code of silence is powerful and can literally shape an officer's career. Quinn emphasizes the “silence” in the term. He states, “Asking us to talk about what we have seen or done under cover of the Code is like asking a complete stranger to share their most intimate fantasy. It's not going to happen.
I feel as if the US needs to be more careful with their way of getting such law enforcement officers. Not that their way of selecting officers in today’s world isn’t enough there just needs to be more added to it. In conclusion the movie “US Marshals” conveys multiple levels of criminal behavior. Not only from a criminal running away from law enforcement but rogue cops also committing criminal acts. Before anyone is sent to jail and there is suspicion about the case their needs to be detective work done so that the system doesn’t make the wrong
Critique Essay on In Cold Blood In every murder case, no matter how perfect the crime may seem, clues are always left behind. Whether it is a lost bullet shell casing or a partial fingerprint, these criminals unknowingly provide for their own demise and capture.

That usually means reverting to street crimes. These crimes include burglary, vandalism, and selling drugs. Those individuals feel that street crime is the only way they will obtain material success. Merton's theory may stand true when comparing social status with street crime; however, his theory becomes weak when the crimes include white-collar and business crimes. Therefore, Merton's theory has become an “anomie theory”.

(Hallam et al. 2005: 56) Some crimes however are not reported because the victim may be intimidated by the person responsible for the crime, or they may not have faith in the police to pursue the crime if they do report it. Other victims of crime may not report it as they feel that the crime is too minor, or that the police will think it is too minor to pursue.
