Question Description

In 2008, two African-American men attacked two Ecuadorian brothers on a street corner in Brooklyn, New York. One of the assailants, Hakim Scott, chased down one of the brothers with a broken beer bottle, while Keith Phoenix beat the other man to death with a baseball bat. Scott was convicted of manslaughter and assault, whereas Phoenix was convicted of murder and assault. Justice Patricia DiMango sentenced both men to 37 years to life in prison.

This case involved multiple special populations. Both the offenders and victims were racial and ethnic minorities, and the judge was a woman. If the case had not involved any or all of these special populations, do you think the convictions and/or sentences might have turned out differently?

For this Discussion, you explore factors that may affect criminal justice outcomes for cases involving special populations. Begin by selecting a recent news story covering a crime involving a special population that resulted in a conviction. This news story may be from the local or national news and should be no more than 5 years old.

Post by Day 3 a brief outline of the events featured in the news story you selected. Include a description of the special population(s) involved. Then describe any factors related to the special population that may have influenced the outcome, and explain how these factors did so. Finally, explain how the outcome may have been different had the crime involved another population.
