Within the 24 hours of the plot’s duration, Paul Haggis has decided upon presenting thrilling-reality based themes such as oppression, crime, racism, corruption, obligation, indignation. In separate incidents, all different character’s lives collide with each other, purposely leading to further tension and understanding of the overall plot and its assertion. Main characters like a police detective linked to a tragic family faith, an attorney and his pampered wife, two car thieves constantly discussing racism, a racist veteran cop taking care of his sick father, a successful Hollywood director and his wife, a Persian-immigrant father and a Hispanic locksmith, will conduct the audience throughout this social-critical drama. Thus, an “utter entertainment satisfaction” arouses and also may lead to moral and soul-searching. One specific scene, out of 19 scenes, which is called “The revenge”, is going to be discussed in this forthcoming essay.
Next the hero in this film who goes by the name of “Cobb” is greater then the common man because he can access your dreams and make you believe something that isn’t true.

Discuss approaches to profiling There are three approaches to criminal profiling; the British approach, the US approach and Geographical Profiling. The US approach is a top down approach which means they start with the big parts of the case and work down to the smaller things involved. The approach was invented by the FBI in the 1970’s when they first looked at the family backgrounds, personalities, behaviours, crimes and motives of serial killers who had sexual aspects to their crimes. They then went on to use in-depth interviews with 36 serial killers. The information they gathered from this and the FBI’s experience and intuition they developed the classification system.
Frank became involved after seeing how his idol Bumpy had the respect, money and power to do what he wanted. That motivated Frank to become very big in the drug world. Richie Roberts, a New York detective has an objective and that is to bring the drug trafficking and corruption between the police department to heel. Money and drugs are driving the behaviors between the drug dealers in this movie to be outrageous. The reason that I chose this movie is because it fits great into the different theories that I am learning about in class.

Nevertheless, Robert Ludlum is able to able to penetrate through every sub plot, ambiguously important character, scheme, trap, reverse trap, and mind scrambling reverse reverse trap to deliver what is one of the most captivating psychological profile's in fiction. The novels antagonist is Venezuelan born Illrich Ramirez Sanchez, also known as Carlos the Jackal, who is based on the real life terrorist and professional assassin that has the same name. Carlos is an interesting character because despite the killings and malice there is always some silver lining that sparks questions about him. For instance, in the beginning of the book, David Webb explains to Conklin how the Jackals system works. When he tells him how the Jackal finds dying old men with no purpose in life, and promises them the delivery of upkeep to their families as long as the old men do his bidding (which is almost always something violent), Conklin exclaims, "They believed him?"
Professional Ethical Standards of a Crime Scene Investigator Renee’ A. Alexander ADJ 235 June 18, 2011 Timothy P. Kelly, Jr. A criminal justice job that I have always been interested in and have considered was a crime scene investigator. Yes the many television shows that involve these types if jobs make it seem interesting and fun, but I actually believe that this is something that I really could do. A crime scene investigator is responsible for taking a crime scene no matter how complex it may be and figure out what happened based on the evidence found. They use many different types of equipment to research and analyze the area a crime has occurred and get the answers needed. They must follow very precise and orderly protocol when collecting or gathering evidence from the crime scene so it can be tested, and get the best results.

Early in the film Sherlock is asked by 3 men to go about solving the murderers because the police aren't of help.
