In a speech in 1966, Robert F. Kennedy said “There is a Chinese curse which says ‘May he live in interesting times.’ Like it or not we live in interesting times. They are times of danger and uncertainty; but they are also more open to the creative energy of men than any other time in history.” (jfklibrary, n.d.).
*Note, that the first record of this phrase “may he live in interesting times” is in a speech by Sir Austen Chamberlain in 1936.*
**Also, there is no evidence that this was ever a Chinese curse.**
Currently, our world is facing a global pandemic, and individuals’ self-interests are pitted against the common good. People have been asked to socially distance or self-isolate. Moreover, if people have COVID-19, they may be asked to quarantine and not leave their home.
Using the due process and crime control model paradigm, develop and describe a potential due process model policy recommendation for COVID-19 to reduce the transmission of the virus. Then, develop and describe a potential crime control model policy recommendation for COVID-19 to reduce transmission. Can you think of times when you might want to apply discretion in your policy? If so, provide examples of why/when you might want to offer discretion.
Finally, although the fields of psychology and law attempt collaboration, such collaboration sometimes leads to frustration for both fields. Discuss some of the basic differences between how the two fields might respond differently to policies to try to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in both our country and globally. You may want to think in terms of philosophies, decision-making processes, methodologies, etc.
