Today's schedule is A-AG-B-C-D

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we'll finish up work on our "Typical Victim" of Assault. Don't forget to look through the crime statistics in the course booklet on page 4 that I'll hand out today for help. Who will most likely be assaulted and why? Now you are taking information and enhancing stereotypes for the people you are drawing. The stereotypes you're basing your drawings on are an example of profiling. Later this week we'll take a deeper look at criminal profiling starting with a look at what psychopathy really is along with the differences between serial and mass murder. The poster is due on Monday you'll have a quiz then begin your first major assignment in the course. To get us there we'll start our criminal profiling unit by watching a Fifth Estate episode called the Unrepentant, from the CBC Fifth Estate website...

They are marked by their ability to kill without passion and without remorse. Some are called psychopaths - a term that evokes nightmare images of murderers and monsters. But the label can also apply to men and women who are successful, intelligent, charismatic, charming and amusing - and so all the more dangerous. This week on the fifth estate, Linden MacIntyre looks at what makes a psychopath through the fifth estate's close encounters with of four of Canada's most frightening criminals.

The fifth estate begins with "Lightning" Lee, a former kick-boxer who brutally victimized women and children who was described as a "textbook psychopath." The other criminals MacIntyre takes on didn't outwardly seem to be the type - the respected commander of an air force base, Russell Williams; and Karla Homolka, who convinced police and a psychiatrist she was a victim, even though she helped her husband assault and kill young girls, including her own younger sister. Finally, MacIntyre revisits the harrowing story of two teenaged friends who conspired to murder one of their families and were caught in a controversial RCMP sting. They are all disordered personalities, whose lack of empathy and shame inspires both fear and fascination.

  B & D Blocks Social Studies 10 - Today you are going to begin work on the Summerland topographic map (82E/12). The questions you need to work on are 2 (a&b), 3 (c&d), 4, 5 (a-e), 6, 7, 8 (a-c, omit d, e-g) on pages 50-52 of the Geographic Understandings text.

Look  to the left, it's the 4th edition map from 2008 and the one in your text is the 2nd edition...what differences are there? We'll look at Summerland on Google Maps because you can see a satellite (Google Earth) view and a terrain view which has the topographic contours on it. For questions 5 & 8 consider the following agribusinesses in Summerland:

Dirty Laundry Vineyards
Sumac Ridge Estate Winery
Sonoran Estate Winery

C Block Law 12 - Today I'll give you time to work on questions 1-4 of the Canada (Attorney General) v. JTI Macdonald Corp., (2007) case on page 44 in the text. This deals with whether limits imposed on tobacco manufacturers’ freedom of expression by provisions of Tobacco Act and Tobacco Products Information Regulations are justified (referring to Charter sections section 2.b Freedom of Expression and section 1 Reasonable Limits). I'd also like you to work on question 3 from page 46 which deals with the R. v. Keegstra (1990) and R. v. Butler (1992) cases. When we finish this we'll watch an episode of Law & Order from season 9 (episode 1) called "Cherished". From

After a baby girl is found dead, Briscoe and Curtis investigate the family and learn that her adopted family and brother were trying to keep some painful secrets. Jack gets a new partner, Abbie Carmichael, who had a 95% percent success rate in her four years with Special Narcotics. Together McCoy and Carmichael try to prove that the little girl's brother committed the crime

The episode deals with some pretty heavy stuff (child abandonment and fraud) and to see a real life example check out the Pravda news article here. The real life case surrounds a couple who adopted a child from a Russian orphanage and a decision was handed down in the case in 2008. From the Salt Lake Tribune:

A Tooele Utah mother who admitted to killing a 14-month-old boy she and her husband adopted from Russia was sentenced Friday to prison for up to 15 years. Kimberly K. Emelyantsev, 34, who had pleaded guilty to second-degree felony child-abuse homicide in the death of Nicoli Emelyantsev, offered a tearful apology in 3rd District Court.
