Some of the main challenges the investigators were facing in the case involving U.S. drug agent Enrique Camarena in Guadalajara were the crime scene was not secured and was contaminated by police and people who just wanted to look. Even though there was such a gap in being able to process the crime scene there is no crime that is committed without leaving some kind of evidence behind. Five large bags were recovered by the investigators by the time the plate was discovered. Complicated the case was that there was a month between the time the two agents died and when their bodies were found decomposing. Since this happened the evidence needed had to begin with the job that the agents were assigned to so that a link could be found from those crimes that tied them in with the death of the agents.
It demonstrates that racism is still very real and that people continue to be treated based on the color of their skin.

The investigated violent crimes that came came under the jurisdiction of the FBI. As they both progressed in their career they began to study why some offenders committed violent crime and some who became serial killers. In the Ressler book “Whoever Fights Monsters” the violent offender was wrote about. Ressler wanted to show the offenders make-up of why they committed violent crimes, how their family dynamics at their early ages might have caused their violent behavior. Ressler focused a majority of his writing around some of the well known serial killers and violent offenders with such names as Manson, Bundy, and Kemper.
This movie reveals a sign of regress of our society because, most lynching incidents in America which occurred in public spaces and were usually the result of rape allegations involving black male supposedly assailants and white women who were purportedly their victims has not been seeing as a pure act of cruelty and hated from white supremacist calling for “justice”. A proof of this is that today, the noose appears in secluded areas such as school grounds and workplaces (Hyde Turner tragedy at work Conrald, Texas) as a result of racial tension in the U.S. Years after the Civil Right Movement, the battle for respect among all people regardless of the color of their skins and the end of racist organization or movement is far from over. A change has been operated but it is not enough to prevent such actions in the first democratic country of the world. In my opinion, the fact CNN host Kyra Phillips emphasize the importance that “youth people understand the horrors of the noose.” shows that American youth today are more sensitive about racial violence than previous generations of Americans. The essential reasons is because these major racial acts of violence occurred in the past so we should now be able to look at it from a clear, reasonably coherent and tolerant point of view in order to make these events stop.

The analysis of the crime scene indicates towards what kind of perpetrator they’d be dealing with, so the classification system can be used to determine the characteristics they might have. This is known as crime scene analysis. The top-down approach is based on the type of crime so the crime reconstruction and profile generation are from the crime scene classification. The stages in US profiling include; data assimilation, crime classification, crime reconstruction and then the profile generation. Although this type of profiling might be useful to some crimes, it is limited to crimes that leave significant evidence e.g.
My interest into the study of crime emanated from the television series “The Bill” I understand the hyper reality and fictionalization of television programmes but this became the starting point of my curiosity. My interest in crime became more apparent when I studied crime and deviance in GCSE Sociology. The nature of this topic highlighted some factors that lead to criminal behaviour; studying Criminology at degree level will enable me to gain deeper knowledge into the study of crime. I am currently studying Media Studies this has helped me to see how the media portrays crimes and how the media may create a distorted image of criminal activity taking place in society . In addition, Media Studies has educated me on the importance of keeping up with the current affairs and being aware of the current levels of crime.
Criminal Profiling: Serial Killers Starsha Brown Walden University The Nature of Crime & Criminology August 4, 2015 Introduction Criminal profiling is vital when researchers are trying to identify the key characteristics of a serial killer. Profiling will assist investigators with identifying the types of serial killers as well as decreasing the numbers of victims. The more information that is gathered about the serial killer, the quicker the apprehension of the offender will be. In criminal trials, criminal profiles paint a clear picture of the dynamics that surround serial killing and the intense fantasies that provoke serial killers. In this paper, I will discuss the fundamental behaviors and factors of serial killers (Paul Rowles and John Wayne Gacy) that criminal profilers should be aware of in future serial killer cases.
He emigrated to London and resided in Whitechapel, where many of the murders took place. Possibly due to the anti-Semitism of this time, Kosminski is considered to be a strong suspect by the two highest ranking officers involved in the investigation, Anderson and Swanson. Kosminski was immediately identified as the murderer by a witness who later refused to testify against a ‘fellow Jew’. For this reason, Kosminski was not charged. Aaron Kosminski displayed some signs of insanity in the late 1880’s and was admitted to Colney Hatch Lunatic Asylum in February 1891.
