Writing Assignment One
Based on the theories you have learned, write a two-page, double spaced paper on the case located below. This assignment is to build upon the theories that you have learned in Module 1. It will help you evaluate your knowledge of the concepts you are expected to have learned at the end of this module. It will help you describe theories and apply them to real life situations. Your paper should discuss the elements of crime and recognize the origins of criminal behavior depicted in this case. Using two different views of crime and two different explanations of crime in the context of different criminological schools of thought, explain the crime that Shane Jensen committed. Be sure to review the grading rubric before starting this assignment. The contents of the paper should be tailored to fulfilling the requirements set out in the grading rubric.

Clearwater police identified 22-year-old Shane Jensen, of Largo, as the suspect in a carjacking in a Home Depot parking lot Wednesday morning. Police said he threatened a teenager out of a truck with a stolen hammer and then drove off. More than 24 hours later, troopers spotted a “medically distressed” pedestrian along the Florida Turnpike in Okeechobee County. A trooper said he stopped to help the man, later identified as Jensen. When the trooper walked away to get some water for Jensen from a road ranger, troopers said Jensen got into the trooper’s patrol car and drove off. As Jensen drove northbound, Osceola County sheriff’s deputies deployed stop sticks, which troopers said Jensen avoided before coming to a stop in the median. Troopers said they arrested Jensen after he fled into the woods. Jensen is facing charges of stealing a patrol car and reckless driving – in addition to any pending charges out of Clearwater.
