Case Study #1: Students for Fair Tuition and GSU President (incl. Mrs. Pimply)

In the case of the "Students for Fair Tuition" and Giant State University's employees (Mrs. Pimply and the GSU President) there were many notable concerns and events that took place that create valid reasoning to review possibility of crime having been committed on that day. A tort is once again not a criminal act, but rather a small offense usually handled on a civil level where as crimes (for being of more extreme concerns of law violations) would be handled on a federal/governmental level. From the beginning when Steve Steel and his hostile appearing student mob of protestors forcefully barge their way into the secretary's office of Mr. Chandeler of which was run by the secretary Prudence Pimply there is clear act of negligence. Since negligence is any failure from a party to condition or maintain reasonable caution that could result in any form of damage to a possible victim there are potentially multiple forms of this. Steve and his students forced their way into the office of Mrs. Pimply and even went as far as to purposely damage University property when trying to kick down the door to the president's office and office property of Mrs. Pimply even when slapping the phone out of her hand. This shows clear acts of negligence, but now with the interaction only slightly described between Steve and his students and with Mrs. Pimply can bring more concerns of unlawful acts. Mrs. Pimply of which was just at the current location during that time doing her normal daily job at the University when unexpectantly being approached and forced into hostile interaction with Steve Steel. Upon this interaction she had a weapon which looked flawlessly real to the eye, but was fake was pointed at her head with threats to blow her head off if she was to reach for a way of contacting police or try and escape. The gun

    Before any law and acts are made, there is a long procedure in the process of it being passed. If there are new laws it usually is chosen by majority decision usually in courts or the parliament. For example, the executive or the government form laws in the House of Commons by setting out bills. Sometimes it may come from their election mandate in order to be chosen, for example recently how labour vowed to ban fox hunting which can be shown as an example. Moreover, they then set out a bill to become an act which gets passed to the house and then to the House of Lords as a checking procedure before it is made. However, if the House of Lords don’t pass it as a law then the executive can go and make it an act. This specific method shows that it can be done by the government and has a process for it before anything can be done; usually these acts and laws come out during elections in order to win voters and sometimes are done and even not processed.…
