1)The assumption that all people know all things is a myth. In regards to criminal law, it is believed that people know only fragments about the law and its contents. For example, I have been enforcing the law for approximately 20 years, and feel I have a good understanding of criminal law but only the laws I regularly enforce. As legislation adds criminal laws each year, it is very hard to keep up with the Amendments as well as new laws. I believe the public’s education unless researched, comes from the entertainment world. In the movies and on television writers and producers skirt the facts of criminal law to be informative enough without damaging the entertainment element. It’s true criminal law sources are abundant but if the average person does not know how toresearch them they will often times leave with only anassumptionofthe right or wrong answers.
