Question Description

The case involving two Brooklyn men who attacked two Ecuadorian brothers and killed one of them was highly publicized. Summaries of the various stages of the case, from trial to retrial and conviction to sentencing, appear in many media outlets, each with a unique spin and tone.

The Daily News expressed rather explicit opinions about the case, describing Phoenix and co-defendant Scott as “heartless hate crime thugs” who “drove to the Bronx for a night of more partying and skirt-chasing” after committing the assault (Marzulli, 2010). The New York Times used less judgmental language to describe the case, although some would argue that undertones of bias were still present.

For this Discussion, you consider media portrayals of special populations and how those portrayals might affect public perceptions and criminal justice outcomes. Review the news story you selected for the previous Discussion. Examine how the media portrayed the special population(s) involved.

Post by Day 4 a brief description of the news story you selected and the media outlet(s) you reviewed for information on the crime. Then, explain how the media coverage of the crime, trial, and conviction portrayed the special population(s) involved. Include possible media biases or stereotypes evident in the news story. Then explain how the media portrayal might influence public perception of the special population in the news story. Finally, briefly explain whether or not you think media portrayal and public perception of special populations may affect outcomes within the criminal justice system.
