The man then ran away.Deputies responded to the store at on the report of an armed robbery. This is not my life, and these are not my habits. I do not even live in the Clapham Road. The trampling of the security guard "was such a tragic event and generated so much negative publicity not only about Walmart, but it raised questions about Black Friday in general," said Jie Zhang, an associate professor of marketing at the Robert H. School of Business at the University of
Angela Veles Crime 330 Thursday 7:00pm Outline Major Topic: Should Captains, Supervisor and Police Officers be immune to the Criminal Justice system or should their ranking be enough to hold them to a higher standard than the ordinary citizen, or does in fact rank bestow privilege? Brief Summary: On February 12, 1998, about 11 p.m., Philadelphia Police Captain James Brady, off duty, left a bar drunk, got into his department-issued Grand Fury, and headed home. A few blocks from the bar Brady rear-ended a parked car, causing substantial damage both to his car and to the Honda Civic he hit. When Captain Brady got pulled over he identified himself with his badge, hence the obvious inference that he was asking for special treatment,
Running head: Armington / Double Jeopardy Armington / Double Jeopardy Paula Ahl Kaplan University LS311: Business Law 1 Professor Allen January 20, 2013 Armington / Double Jeopardy In the case of Armington who while robbing a drugstore, shot and injured Jennings, the drug store clerk, was convicted in criminal court of armed robbery and assault and battery. Later Jennings filed a civil tort suit against Armington for damages. Armington stated that according to the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution he could not be tried again for the same crime because this would be double jeopardy. As stated in our text “double jeopardy is defined as being tried twice for the same criminal offense” (Miller & Jentz, 2008). However, prohibition against double jeopardy does not preclude the crime victim from bringing a civil suit against that same person to recover damages (Miller & Jentz, 2008, pg 137).
The arrest is the seizing and detaining of a person by lawful authority (McGrow-Hill, 2010, p.22). He has Bill and Stan exit the car through the driver’s side. Because the Sherriff thought they had committed a felony he had every right to have his weapon drawn. A felony is” a serious offense punishable by death, a fine, of confinement in a state or federal prison for more than a year” (Wikipedia.org). During the initial arrest they were not informed about what crime they had been arrested for, which they should have been.
Every customer has a value to an organization and every customer has a price to that organization. Customers are the lifeblood and source of revenue to a business (O’Rourke, p.275). Dr. Wallace’s family had a genuinely unpleasant experience in an Olive Garden restaurant with the customer service. On a Tuesday evening in Mishawaka, IN, Mr. Wallace, his two young daughters, and his disabled father arrived at the establishment at 8:15 p.m. for supper. The restaurant is usually open until 10 p.m. during the week and 11 p.m. on the weekend, so 8:15 p.m. was a fairly decent time to arrive at the restaurant for supper.
Zimbardo then took a similar car to Palo Alto, California, an upscale area, but this time there was no damaged license plate and the doors were closed and locked. It sat, undisturbed, for a week. Zimbardo then damaged the car with a hammer, including breaking a window (hence, the “broken window experiment”). The result was that the car became a hulk on cinder blocks within three days (Rovira). This experiment translated to a policing philosophy that by taking care of the small things, the broken windows, the petty crimes, an area, a neighborhood, or an entire city would be seen as something not subject to damage.
Its imperfectness was experienced after the Oklahoma City bombing when experts first thought the suspects were of Middle Eastern descent (Amnesty, 2006). The perpetrator of the bombing was actually a white American. After the 2002 Beltway killings of black citizens began, authorities focused on a white male acting alone, the typical profile of a serial killer, allowing the two black men committing these crimes to go unnoticed although their car license plate was checked many times (Amnesty, 2006). When racial or ethnic characteristics are the primary cause for targeting a person for criminal investigation criminal profiling becomes racial profiling. The term ‘racial profiling’ is a new term commonly associated with the old practice of discrimination and owes its existence to prejudice that has existed in this country since slavery (Racial, 2006).
The flat, even tire marks going over the curb showed it to be impossible for Billy’s car to have been involved in the getaway because the Skylark fails to have a suspension system that would do this. Vinny finds Lisa and drags her into court as an expert of cars, to testify to this. He recalls the FBI analyst who agreed that Billy’s car did not make those tracks. Vinny requested a sheriff to run a record check and testified that two men who looked like Billy and Stan were arrested for theft of a stolen Pontiac Tempest which resembles Billy’s Skylark in appearance and color. The car thief’s had possession of the same caliber gun used to kill the store clerk.
When the police arrived at the scene Peter gets away leaving only Anthony and Cameron in the car. Because of the incident with Ryan and Hansen Cameron gets angry and verbally assaults the police officers when they asked him to get out of the car. Hansen told the police officers that he knew Cameron and persuaded them to let him go with a warning. Cameron Stopped to look at Anthony and told him “You embarrass me, you embarrass yourself.” In conclusion, Cameron is trying to make Anthony understand that they are consequences to his actions. What Anthony did make people believe that African American males are more likely to do crime and are gangbangers.
Enhance your Meals, A Day of Beer Drinking Sitting at the Carolina Brewery, in Chapel Hill, NC, finishing my 6th beer of the night (an in-house brewed IPA called “Flagship”), Tim (one of the brewers at Carolina Brewery) came to the bar to check on customers. Tim and I began talking, “blah, blah, blah your beer tastes good, where ya from” ect… That’s when he said, “I see you’re drinking the Flagship. If you’re a fan I recommend ordering the fish and chips, but stay away from the buffalo wings their too spicy for an IPA.” At first I thought that Tim might have had one too many IPA’s himself, but he went on to explain his interest in beer/food pairing. I quickly became interested in having the social knowledge to discuss which beers go well with food dishes.
