Thank you for the request. Please let me know the due date. Also can you suggest any event in your state that fulfill the criteria of this question ? (Events known to me may not be ideal to this question as I am not an American)
I understand the assignment like this. I have to visit the FBI website and read some press releases to understand how a press release is written. Then I have to write
a 350- to 700-word press release about a current criminal justice event or an issue in your state that involves a diverse group and potential language barriers.
I believe the paper need to be on a particular state (your state) that involves a diverse group and potential language barriers.
I need a suggestion of topic from you if this is the case.
Do you think http://www.fbi.gov/cleveland/press-releases/2012/twelve-indicted-in-akron-canton-drug-ring this topic is sufficient ?
I could not find any topics on California based criminal justice event that involves potential language barriers or diverse groups within the last one week. (In the FBI website) The above story is based on California, shall I proceed with it?
Ok, will upload it by morning tomorrow.
Review the answer and please let me know if anything.
I could see your new question and I responded from there. But for some reasons, that thread is now closed. I am not sure if you are still in need of help.
I don't know what happened to the other thread. Yes, you may request me in your new questions also. For this question, shall we proceed with this thread ? I did not save that new question and that is closed now. So please post the question here in the same way as you post responses.
