Axia College Material Appendix E Critical Analysis Forms Fill out one form for each source. Source 1 Title and Citation: Brutality Against Illegal Immigrants Is Exaggerated Brutality Against Illegal Immigrants Is Exaggerated. John Corry. Current Controversies: Police Brutality. Ed. Tamara L. Roleff. San Diego: Greenhaven Press, 1999. Corry, John. "Brutality Against Illegal Immigrants Is Exaggerated." Current Controversies: Police Brutality . Ed. Tamara L. Roleff. San Diego: Greenhaven Press, 1999. Oppo Gale. Apollo Library. 16 Jan. 2009 <http://find.galegroup.com/ovrc/infomark.do? 1 Identify the principal issue presented by the source. The exaggeration due to the media coverage over the beating of the illegal immigrants by the Riverside sheriff’s department is the principle issue presented by the source. 2 Identify any examples of bias presented by the author. If none exist, explain how you determined this. “It was Rodney King all over again, with a reminder of O.J. Simpson” because these are both two very public negative happenings that bring out strong emotions in people, and by invoking these two cases he is in sighting the reader to be wary of believing what is presented by the media. 3 Identify any areas that are vague or ambiguous. If none exist, explain how you determined this. “When the camper frame on the truck became loosened, they threw chunks of that.” Is a vague and ambiguous statement. Another vague statement is, “His companion and perhaps common-law wife, Alicia Soltero Vasquez (or Leticia Gonzalez, depending on which paper you read, and when you read it).” “Moreover, if illegal Mexican immigrants are caught crossing the border with children, they are released in the United States and not returned to Mexico. They may then receive medical care, schooling for the children, and welfare benefits if they should have more babies.” Is another vague and ambiguous claim. CRT 205

4 Do you find the source credible? Explain your reasoning. The source is credible for the simple fact he used actual facts and details from the media coverage of this incident. The author included specific examples of the brutality the illegal immigrants endured by law enforcement. 5 Identify and name any rhetorical devices used by the author. If none exist, explain how you determined this. “The Times also reported that one of the deputies "once was associated" with a group of deputies "who adopted a swaggering attitude to make it clear they would not tolerate lawbreakers"”, is an example of the author using innuendo and stereotyping to get his point across. 6
