What is your problem statement?

Research Papers:
The research paper should be based on the topics discussed in class or topics from the textbook that are exclusively related to sociological theories of crime*. You need to take a decisive stand on one of the issues and defend it persuasively with evidence drawn from peer-reviewed journal articles.
The focal point in academic research is the clarity of the problem statement/ thesis statement and the objectives of any research paper because they lead you, as a researcher, to focus on some variables and not others and provide an opportunity for you to demonstrate why these variables are essential.
In your paper, the problem statement is the first part of the essay to be read. It should ″hook″ the reader and establish a persuasive context for what follows. The problem statement is just one sentence (with several paragraphs of elaboration). It should be specific and supported by empirical evidence. Remember that your topic may change as you write, so you may need to revise your statement to reflect what you have discussed in the paper.
The objectives of your research should be based on the problem statement. They are some analytical or desсrіptive tasks that lead you to accomplish your problem statement.
Example:
The Problem Statement focuses on the relationship between domestic violence and family income. The main variables in the above statement are (1) domestic violence, and (2) family income.
The objectives, for example are: (1) to understand domestic violence based on a specific theoretical approach such as the structural-functionalist approach, the Marxist approach, or the symbolic interaction approach (2) to analyze the impact of family income on domestic violence. You can come up with more objectives but make sure to connect them with the problem statement.
Example of an analytical thesis statement.
An analysis of the college admission process reveals one challenge facing counselors: accepting students with high test scores or students with strong extracurricular backgrounds.
Example of the objectives:
• explain the analysis of the college admission process (objective 1)
• explain the challenge facing admissions counselors” (objective 2)
Example of an expository (explanatory) thesis statement:
The typical college student′s life is characterized by time spent studying, attending class, and socializing with peers.
The paper that follows should Explain how students spend their time studying, attending class, and socializing with peers.
What you need to include in the introduction:
The introduction is the broad beginning of your research paper. It may include answers to the following questions:
1. What is your problem statement?
2. Why do you think it is important or significant to study? Why should I read it as a reader?
3. What are the objectives of your paper?
Using subheadings:
The major subheadings that I encourage you to use after the introduction are:
a. Literature Review: A literature review is an account of what has been published on a topic by accredited scholars and researchers. It is recommended to cover the following aspects when you write the literature review section:
1. The problem statement and the research objectives
2. Method of research (qualitative-quantitative)
3. Main findings of the study
4. Critique of the main argument, data, findings
5. This section is the supporting ideas of your thesis statement that contains a few paragraphs in order to approve your problem statement. It is similar or equivalent to the body paragraph in research essays. Please do not divide your literature into articles as you do in annotated bibliographies. Reviewing articles from peer-reviewed journals is key in this section.
b. Analytical Section: Your critical thinking and analyzing empirical evidence is highly recommended in this section. What may you do in this section?
1. You may argue the main theme in the literature you reviewed.
2. You may compare the previous studies based on findings.
3. You may support your problem statement based on the literature you reviewed
4. Applying theories or a single theory or a theoretical approach in this section is highly recommended.
Some students may apply their critical thinking and theoretical imagination in the literature review section itself when they analyze and criticize the reviewed articles. It all depends on your writing style and your preferences. Therefore, the analytical section can be embodied in the literature review section.
c. Conclusion: A conclusion is the last few paragraphs in your research paper that summarize your research paper′s main findings. It should be short and focused on the problem statement and the objectives. Your conclusion should follow the same order of information as your introduction; therefore, you need to refer back to your introduction.
1. References: APA format is required
You Research paper should be:
1. -Three pages max, excluding the front page and the bibliography.
2. – Page number 4 will not be marked.
3. In formal research paper format
4. Typed, Font 12 – Times New Roman –Double-space
5. Submitted to Turnitin and Blackboard Drop-Box– Turnitin information is posted on the course′s home page.
6. Writing a research plan is recommended. It should be discussed with me during my office hours. The link for my office hours schedule is posted on BB.

Do you think that lisa montgomery should have been granted a stay of execution and her case appealed due to her attorney′s claims that she is mentally ill?

ORDER for REVISON and REWITE without so much bias. More Analysis please from both sides reflecting a fair discourse analysis discussion.
U.S. Government Scheduled Execution of Lisa Montgomery, the First Woman to be Executed Since 195.
Posted on October 21, 2020,
Lisa Montgomery, a federal inmate and the only woman on the federal government’s death row at the time, was executed via lethal injection by the U.S. government.
According to the Department of Justice’s Office of Public Affairs,
Montgomery was convicted of “fatally strangling a pregnant woman, Bobbie Jo Stinnett, cutting open her body, and kidnapping the baby.” The heinous crime was described as a “premediated murder-kidnap scheme” in which Montgomery drove from her home in Kansas to
Stinnett’s home in Missouri under the pretense of purchasing a puppy. After murdering Stinnett, Montgomery tried to pass the baby off as her own, but subsequently confessed to both the murder and the kidnapping. In 2007, Montgomery was found guilty of federal kidnapping resulting in death.
The jury unanimously recommended a death sentence, which was later imposed by the court. Montgomery’s attempts at appealing her conviction and sentence were unsuccessful, both her conviction and sentence were affirmed.
The Washington Post reported that Montgomery’ execution illustrates the “rare instance of a woman being put to death in the United States.”
According to the Death Penalty Information Center “women are rarely sentenced to death in the United States and executions of women are even rarer.”
In fact, women constitute less than 2% of the total death row population (as of 2019) and only 16 women have been executed since a Supreme
Court case reinstated the death penalty in 1976.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prison records, the last woman to be executed by the federal government prior to Montgomery was Bonnie Brown Heady.
Heady and her co-defendant were both sentenced to death for kidnapping and murder. They were executed via the gas chamber at the Missouri State Penitentiary on December 18th, 1953.
Montgomery, who suffered from complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and psychosis due to childhood abuse, which included sex trafficking, is one of two federal inmates who are scheduled to be executed in December.
The other federal inmate, Brandon Bernard, was executed via lethal injection on December 10, 2020. Bernard’s co-defendant, Christopher Andre Vialva, was executed on September 24th.
Montgomery and Bernard’s executions were the 8th and 9th executions that take place that year under the Trump administration, who resumed federal executions in July after a 17-year hiatus.
Montgomery’s attorney, assistant public federal defender Kelley Henry, stated that she “was represented at trial by an incompetent lawyer who has the dubious distinction of a having more clients on federal death row than any other attorney” and that her “severe mental illness and the devastating impacts of her childhood trauma make executing her a profound injustice.”
According to the Death Penalty Information Center (DPIC), “women are rarely sentenced to death in the United States and executions of women are even rarer.”
As of July 1, 2019, there were only 57 women on death row. This constitutes less than 2% of the total death row population.
Only 16 women have been executed since a Supreme Court case reinstated the death penalty in 1976.

Assignment Question and Analysis of Case: According to the Death Penalty Information Center, there is no categorical ban on the execution of people with mental illness.
Although legislatures have considered bills creating an exclusion, none have been enacted as of the date of this article.
Do you think that Lisa Montgomery should have been granted a stay of execution and her case appealed due to her attorney′s claims that she is mentally ill?
Analysis and support the answer.

Maximum 5 pages, double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12 point font, 1 inch margins.
Paragraph one: Write a brief introduction that gives a statement of purpose for your essay, clarifies what you will be doing in it, and providing any useful definitions you′ll need to use. For example, there should be a sentence that says ″in this essay, we will explore critically the main legal precedents for several Supreme Court cases, including…″ You should also define legal precedent.
2. Paragraphs two, three, four, five, six (minimum) . For the FIVE cases we′ve covered so far write a least one very thorough paragraph that provides a thorough explanation of each precedent set by the Supreme Court in their ruling, utilizing that Supreme Court case as an example.
In those paragraphs, make sure to examine the precedent from all sides, both desсrіptively and critically. Desсrіptively, you want to say what the precedent was that was established, provide the case that lead to it in terms of facts, ruling, and reasoning. Critically, you want to demonstrate you can analyze the implications of the case: How the law might apply to future cases, counterarguments against the reasoning for the precedent, downsides to the precedent, or what you think are its benefits.
