According to Schmalleger, Hall, and Dolatowski (2010), a syndrome is “a complex of signs and symptoms presenting a clinical picture of a disease or disorder”. They also define a syndrome-based defense as a “defense predicated on, or substantially enhanced by, the acceptability of syndrome-related claims”. Use the foregoing definitions to respond to
· Review the concept of syndrome-based defense enhancements;
· Discuss whether a syndrome should be considered an excuse, a justification, or an explanation; and
· Discuss whether syndromes can best be seen as (1) potentially negating mens rea, (2) widening traditional defenses, or (3) a way of justifying behavior classes or groups of people.
