Imagine that an agency believes empathy reduces aggression in grade-schoolers, and they have a program designed to increase empathy that they have named, Empathy for Pre-Teens or EPT.

Imagine that an agency believes empathy reduces aggression in grade-schoolers, and they have a program designed to increase empathy that they have named, Empathy for Pre-Teens or EPT. The program involves six hours of role-playing activities intended to help fifth graders take the role of other kids.
After a local school hires them to conduct the program, they obtain the number of school infractions given to fifth graders one month before the program is delivered. The agency then goes into the school for one hour a week for six weeks and delivers the program. They then obtain the number of school infractions given to the fifth graders one month after they were exposed to the program.
They find that the number of infractions is lower; and feel confident in claiming on their website that their EPT program has proven successful in reducing aggression.
If you were reading this on their website, would you be sold on their program’s ability to reduce aggression in grade-schoolers? Why or Why not? What are some of the questions you have about the program? What are some of the issues with determining this program a success? Explain.

Find and research a famous or otherwise infamous TRUE crime (preferably in Texas) and write a detailed review of the crime, its investigation, its outcome in the courts, and those parties involved in the crime. The crime does not have to be a murder case.
However, it must be an actual case/crime that has actually occurred. It would also be best if the crime has gone to trial and has an outcome in court. Details in attachment but is 5 pages with 3 sources (minimum)…can do more sources but want to stay about 5-6 pages as long as it meets the minimum. I also will need to ensure that it passes the plagiarism report due to it being submitted through Canvas/VeriCite to be graded.

Within the Texas Penal Code are statutes that have multiple sections which delineate the specific criminal law.

Part 1 – Within the Texas Penal Code are statutes that have multiple sections which delineate the specific criminal law. Some of these statutes’ multiple sections outline situations which enhance or aggravate the foundation law. (2 are listed in the attached to choose 1 from). Part 2 – Every Texas legislative session, the Penal Code, and other Codes, are reviewed for statutes that are outdated or in need of revision because of court rulings. In some instances, an appellate court has effectively ruled that a specific statute is unconstitutional and unenforceable. I want you to choose two current statutes and explain why the entire statute or a specific part of it should be deleted from the Texas Penal code. This does not, of course, include laws on drugs and narcotics. Then, explain your reasoning. The best projects will include supporting sources, not just opinions. Details in attachment but looking for 5-6 pages with about 3 sources (depending on detail of work)…can do more sources but want to stay about 5-6 pages. I also will need to ensure that it passes the plagiarism report due to it being submitted through Canvas/VeriCite to be graded.
