Security and State Priorities, 1900 -202020

Information can be regarded as the ultimate resolution of uncertainty; it defines both the nature and the attributes of an object and therefore answers the age-old question of what an object is. The concept of information also has various other meanings in many contexts. In computer engineering, information is used to describe the logical structure of an instruction and its effect on a program. Information is used in medicine to classify disease, to determine the course of treatment and, in many areas of research, to improve and refine methods and procedures. It is used in social science to analyze collective behavior, investigate cultural diversity, and explain various phenomenon.

One area in which information processing has been used successfully to create an arrest is the formal criminal charge against defendant B.C., charged with murder. According to the information theory of criminal justice, it was not possible for B.C. to have committed the crime because he had no knowledge of it, had no means of procuring the information, and had no opportunity to commit the crime. According to this theory, it was necessary for B.C. to have information of the crime and a willing accomplice to assist him in committing the crime. On this view, it was not necessary for B.C. to understand the criminal process he was undertaking, he did not need the assistance of an accomplice, and he was not in immediate physical danger.

This article presents information theory as it appears in real life, applying the same information concepts to the subject of a formal criminal charge. Information is a category prior to action that is not an object or item. I use the term information in this article to mean a proposition, a set of propositions, a collection of truths, a list of objects or to identify a set of persons or things. The information involved here is abstract and is not necessarily confined to human actions.

The information theory thus describes n f de la informaci n crime as a series of events that have a common thread. Each event is an information point along the path of the criminal process, each point is a potential act, each potential act may have an influence on the next step of the criminal process and each event has an influence on the subsequent stages. The theory also describes the progression of the criminal process, the ways in which it affects the criminal and the victims, and the procedures by which the criminal gets from start to finish. This description fits the case quite well, since the victim is not an information element and neither is the potential criminal.

I introduce this relationship between informaci n f de la informaci n crime and information processing as an example. Suppose we call three teens gang members, all of them having been arrested for a crime. We then ask our information processing question, “When and how did these three teens get information about gang initiation?” The answer is that they got information about it from two (2) sources. One source was the local newspaper, which may not have included information about the gang in its story; and another source would be the internet, which may not have included gang initiation information or details as well. These two sources, then, give rise to two possibilities: either information was somehow passed along through a link between the two sources, or the information was simply transmitted, and therefore could not be passed along in any way.

We now pose our question again, using the information theory: “How will the introduction of new technologies affect the security of the state in the next twelve months, or, how will the introduction of new technologies affect the security of the nation in the next twenty years?” The answer, again, is that neither is likely. Both processes have their moments, and both waves are likely to affect security in some way. The waves may be different, but in some ways they both seem to come at once.
