Help, I don't know where to begin.

Your supervisor would like you to do some research in preparation for an article regarding the application of modern theories of criminal thinking and criminal behavior of famous criminals in American history to be submitted to Criminologist's Quarterly. Using web research and Library resources, prepare an analysis, in a professional format of your choice, of a well-known criminal in American history; you can also choose duos or groups, such as Bonnie & Clyde or The Dalton Gang. Discuss how various psychological and sociological theories of criminal thinking and behavior would explain the criminal's crimes and how they would be classified today. For example, would Jesse James, a criminal who robbed banks with his James' Gang, be considered a psychopath or goal driven property criminal because he stole money or perhaps a member of organized crime because he was in a "gang."
