classicism/positivism, deviance amplification, moral panic

Question (100 marks) (1500 words)
Using the concepts learnt (e.g., classicism/positivism, deviance amplification, moral panic, etc.), critique the case of Satoshi Uematsu (The Straits Times, 27 July 2016), who killed 19 residents in a care home where he once worked.
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, how did the media present Uematsu and the case? Did media amplify the case? If so, illustrate the process through a content analysis (for example, you may wish to examine the headlines or words used). Was there ‘moral panic’? If so, what was the nature of the ‘moral panic’?
(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.
Remember to include in-text citations and a reference list in the APA style format (6th ed.) (2010). Available at http://www.apastyle.org. Marks will be lost for incorrect citation style.
