Below are the required learning resources for this week.
The Innocence Project
The home page for the national organization dedicated to the wrongfully accused and to reforming the criminal justice system.
Based on the week’s reading, explain the role communications, computers, and databases play in the criminal justice system. Can these technologies quell acts of terrorism, and if so how can the use of such technologies effect civil liberties? Fully explain the basis of your position.
Additionally, consider how technological advances (other than DNA testing) can reduce the conviction of innocent persons.
