While working an undercover detail in a neighborhood known for drug activity, you notice a vehicle stopped at the intersection waiting for the light to change. The man in the vehicle makes eye contact with you. You approach his vehicle and begin carrying on a conversation with him. You ask him if he needs anything, and he responds by asking, “What do you have?” You ask him what he is looking for, and he tells you that he is looking to score. You show him a small bag containing a white powdery substance; he asks how much, and you respond, “20 dollars.” He hands you a $20-bill, and you give him the bag and tip your hat to signal that the transaction was completed. At this time, the man drives off and is stopped a block away by a marked unit. The individual is placed under arrest for drug possession and purchasing drugs, and he is taken to jail.
The individual is charged with possession of a controlled substance. At his trial, he claimed that he was a victim of entrapment by the police. His claim of entrapment failed. He was found guilty and sentenced to serve 5 years in jail.
In a 3-5 page paper (not including the cover and reference pages), address the following:
Research and summarize Supreme Court decisions that specifically address entrapment.
Suggested cases for review:
Read about the Hampton case.
Read about the Jacobsen case.
Summarize both cases in paragraph form. Include the following in your analysis of each case:
Did you have probable cause to approach the defendant while he was parked at the traffic light? Why or why not? Defend your answer.
Was the entrapment defense valid in this case? Why or why not? Defend your answer.
Is providing the opportunity for someone to commit a crime the same as entrapment? Why or why not?
When the pipeline in Titusville, Pennsylvania lined the bore holes to allow deeper drilling in the mid-19th century (https://www.bbc.com/timelines/zqgxtfr), a brand-new industry began. It came at a time when emerging technology created new products from oil. The first commercially viable oil well Titusville, as well as the high demand for kerosene, triggered an oil rush in a global scale. Today, oil and gas are used widely in modern life. Oil fuels the cars, trucks and planes that support modern economies and lifestyles. By-products from oil refining are used in producing plastics and chemicals. Nearly all pesticides and many fertilisers are made from oil or oil by-products. Gas provides electricity and is also used for cooking, heating and fuelling numerous industrial operations. There is no doubt that oil and gas are the cornerstones of modern society. However, with the diminishing number of conventional reservoirs and increasing concern of the rising global temperature, scientists started wondering if oil and gas will remain our primary energy resource in 30 years. In this essay, we are going to examine the amount of remaining oil and gas reservoirs, unconventional production methods and their costs, as well as current renewables’ situations and costs. Conventional or unconventional Oil and gas typically began with a mixture of fine sediments such as silt and clay, combined with organic remains of aquatic microorganisms called plankton. This organic mud can accumulate across wide areas offshore or on lake bottom where plankton is abundant. If the organic mud is covered by another type of rock, it turns to organic shale overtime. When organic shales are deeply buried underground and exposed to the increasing levels of Earth’s heat, organic matters begin to convert to oil and gas. Shale that has formed oil and gas is called source rock. The tight pattern in source rock structured by tiny silt and clay grains makes the rock nearly impermeable. For this reason, it has been long thought that it is impossible to drill hydrocarbon directly from source rock.>GET ANSWER
