Sociology of Law and Order

Using the concepts learnt (e.g., classicism/positivism, deviance amplification, moral panic, etc), critique the case of Mr. Andreas Lubitz, who was the co-pilot when Germanwings Flight 4U9525 crashed in March 2015.
Your analysis must address the following:
(1) Analyse the role of the media and its impact on our understanding of the crime/deviance in question. For example, who are the criminals/deviants or what is the crime/deviance in question? Is Lubitz the only criminal/deviant? Are there any stereotypes or prejudice affirmed or debunked? Did the media amplify the deviance in question? If so, how? If not, why not? (Provide specific examples in your answer).
(2) Appraise the classical and positivist approach to this case.
(In your paper, do not focus solely on presenting the facts of the case. You should also write in one continuous essay and not break your paper into two sections.)

Student notes
This question tests your ability to analyse the case using concepts learned in the course (i.e., to go beyond simple facts), to evaluate and critique facts and information, and to develop critical thinking. To do well for this assignment, you must clearly explain the concepts, examine and think through the issues, and be able to integrate the information and analysis into a coherent, persuasive essay. Do NOT cite from generic sites such as, Cliffnotes, Wikipedia, or online study guides from universities worldwide.
