You are the criminologist advisor to a member of the state legislature. The legislature will soon vote on a bill that, if it passes, would double the maximum prison term for anyone convicted of armed robbery. Your boss knows the bill is popular, but wonders if it will do much good.
Consider policy making as it relates to criminal offenses. What recommendations would you make? What are the reasons for your recommendations? Is this a good bill or a bad bill? Is this bill effective?
Prepare a 750- to 1,050-word proposal addressing the following:
Objectives of the bill
Goals of the bill
Possible solutions for the bill
Justification for why the bill should be approved or not
