Homework Help: Understanding Paragraphs

Posted by ME on Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at 11:32pm.

Read each of the following paragraph and underline the topic sentence.

Many people assume that the law is based on the consent of citizens, that is treats citizens equally, and that it serves the best interest of society. If we simply read the U.S Constitution and statutes, this assumption may indeed be justified. But focusing on the law on the books, as William Chambliss (1969) pointed out, may be misleading. The law on the books does indeed say that the authorities ought to be fair and just. But are they ? To understand crime, Chambliss argued, we need to look at the law in action, Chambliss concluded that legal authorities are actually unfair and unjust, favoring the rich and powerful over the poor and week.

I underlined: Many people assume that the law is based on the consent of citizens, that is treats citizens equally, and that it serves the best interest of society.
