Need a topic for a paper, details in body of thread.

I am writing a paper for my senior seminar. I also have to interview a person related to the field. The directions are as follows: Student designs a study testing the application of a criminological theory to a specific policing or correctional issue and discusses implications to cj system.

I do not have any problems writing the paper, my mind is just blank when it comes to a topic. I was thinking about doing one on recidivism and how cognitive therapy as well as other therapies should be implemented in order to stop re-offending. I don't know if that sounds like a good topic or not. Any suggestions? As I said I don't need anyone to write for me, I can write, it's the topic I'm having difficulty with.

    Watch a couple of episodes of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, pick an issue he brings up related to how poor people get screwed by the system, and going from there.

    Like, "debtors prisons don't prevent people from accruing parking tickets."

    That sort of thing.

    Civics is not a consumer product that you can ignore because you don’t like the options presented.

    This is something that you really need to think through and decide for yourself for a number of reasons, so I'm closing this thread.

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn
