MSU CJ292 F10 Marschner 1 Travis Marschner A39406290 Part One – Newsworthy Article Question 1 (worth 2 points): Using APA format (5 th or 6 th edition), provide the full citation of your article as it would be found in a reference list. Ashenfelter, D. (2010, September 14). Detroit terror suspect given standby counsel. Detroit Free Press. Retrieved September 14, 2010, from http://www.freep.com/article/20100914/NE WS01/100914051/1320/Detroit-terror-suspect-given-standby-council Question 2 (worth 2 points): In a few sentences, synthesize the main point(s) of the article. A 23 year old, Nigerian by the name of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was accused of trying to blow-up a jetliner en-route to Detroit with a bomb in his underwear. He was on the last December. The Nigerian requested if he would be able to represent himself on the basis that his representation would be unfair. U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds appointed Anthony Chambers to be the defense counsel for Abdullmutallab. Question 3 (worth 3 points): In a paragraph or two, critically analyze the media representations of crime offered by your article. Are there any errors in reasoning or observation? Do you agree or disagree with the media representation? Why or why not? The Detroit Free Press has headlines that are always full of crime related stories. The media always shows the bad parts of crime. It is hard to find a media representation that shows the good part of crime. Hardly ever is there a headline telling of the heroic police activity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
