Think about the information you’ve learned thus far about intelligence analysis, and particularly in regard to the Five Steps of the Intelligence Cycle (i.e. Planning, Collection, Processing, Analysis, and Dissemination). You may find some parts of the movie disturbing, but please focus on the events portrayed in the movie through the lens of the Five Steps of the Intelligence Cycle. After watching the movie Zero Dark Thirty, please respond to the following questions for this Discussion Board assignment:
Describe the portrayal of the main character’s role as an intelligence analyst. Based on your assigned readings this week, do you think the portrayal of the intelligence analyst in the movie is accurate? Explain your answer.
Provide at least three examples from the movie which portray an intelligence analyst performing duties in support of the “Five Steps of the Intelligence Cycle.” Specifically describe the intelligence cycle step in your three examples.
Provide at least one example of an intelligence analyst success, and one example of an intelligence analyst failure. Identify which step of the intelligence cycle was involved in each example.
treated more leniently in the Criminal Justice System due to the fact they are not considered as being capable of being criminally motivated, and thus are reluctant to sentence them as harshly as men. Elizabeth Stanko (1994) argued that male violence is ‘downplayed’ and ‘normalised’ as it is difficult for people to accept women’s violence, despite any mitigating factors that may exist. With regards to the data and evidence discussed in this section, it appears that if a woman is violent, she becomes an aberration in the eyes of not only the jury, but also the media and the general public too. Undoubtedly, women who commit violent crimes should too be punished for their actions, however why should it be that women are subject to longer sentences than men for the same type of crime, or even a lesser crime, simply because they are classed as ‘doubly evil’ in the eyes of society? This implies that there are gendered perceptions not only surrounding violence, but also women and men, and if equality is to exist within the Criminal Justice System, then these disparities should be addressed. Gender bias against men The graph below shows the prison population of England and Wales, starting from the 20th Century to 2014. As mentioned previously, there are 20.6 times as many men than women in prison. Although it has been proven that men commit far more crimes than women, 20 times more seems like an extremely large difference. In order to gauge the number of crimes that each gender has committed, it is necessary to explore the number of sentences that have passed on a yearly basis, in other words, the number of cases that go to court where the verdict is guilty and a sentence is obligatory. The table below shows that in England and Wales there have been over three times more men sentenced per year than women, and the ratio has fallen between 2006 and 2012.
