This paper consists of two three-page essays covering how there can be improvement in how law enforcement captures and convicts violent criminals, and how criminal analysis is making strong headway in predicting- although not always totally accurately- crimes, criminals and even geographic location. The paper points out, however, that good as modern forensic science and psychological testing may be, they are far from perfect, and an improved means of communication and full-scale analysis is needed.

From the Paper:

"American prisons are overflowing with criminals- some with non-violent crime histories (sale or use of drugs, white collar crimes), but many with hardened and violent criminals who were captured, tired and convicted. Despite overflowing prison cells, law enforcement is not succeeding in ridding our communities of all the violent criminals who deserve to serve time behind bars. One major problem is the belief held by many, that minorities are subject to more arrests and convictions based merely on their being a minority. Racial profiling often plays a part in the apprehension of criminals."
