  1. Determine the pertinent demographic, social, political, and economic factors about your chosen country.
  2. Examine the manner in which your chosen country’s criminal code would likely view the crime you witnessed. Provide a rationale for the response.
  3. Choose two (2) individual rights that the United States grants criminal suspects, such as search and seizure, right to counsel, etc., and analyze the country’s perspective on each right. Provide support for the analysis.
  4. Investigate the manner in which the police in your chosen country would likely treat the defendant. Provide justification for the response.
  5. Classify the fundamental similarities and differences between the police culture in your chosen country compared to the United States.
