A New Adventure

Feeling Inspired

October 23, 2015

Following this week’s lecture, I am feeling inspired to continue writing about crime. We had a guest speaker in class, Carl Eve from the Plymouth Herald. He was a most interesting character, full of great anecdotes from his experiences writing as a crime reporter and covering court cases. It was a most interesting and informative talk with lots of practical advice and a quick recap on media law.

I am more drawn to writing a feature on crime for my portfolio rather than a series of news stories on one or more court cases. I am getting more curious about cyber-crime and have been gathering information from websites, academic papers and government statistics. It is a truly vast topic and I want to write about so much, but I will have to be very selective to meet the criteria and word count of the assignment.

Yesterday was by far the best day this week. We had another guest speaker, Paul Weall, who works alongside the police in a forensic digital hi-tech crime unit. He demonstrated how much of our personal information is available online and how criminals can access this for unlawful purposes. We also learned how within his job he was able to track down a missing teenage girl from an email message she had sent. It was a most fascinating talk and I feel motivated to continue studying the subject of cyber-crime.
