C Block Law 12 - Today we will go through the elements necessary for a negligence case to move forward. We'll look at: Duty of Care; Standard of Care (including foreseeability and the reasonable person's test); Causation; and Actual Loss (real loss or injury). Included in this will be understanding the legal principle res ipsa loquitur (the facts speak for themselves). After that you've got the rest of the block in the library for your project.

C Block Criminology 12 - I'd like to share the CBC DocZone Documentary "Sext Up Kids" with you. The documentary exposes how growing up in a hyper-sexualized culture hurts our kids and sends the wrong messages that could potentially lead to sexual assaults. From the CBC site:

From tiny tots strutting bikini-clad bodies in beauty pageants to companies marketing itty-bitty thongs and padded bras to 9-year olds, images of ever-younger sexualized girls have become commonplace.  Add to that: ever-younger boys with 24-7 access to hard-core internet porn.   It saturates their lives - from skate parks to the school bus – by the time they’re eighteen, 80 percent of boys are watching porn online.

So we'll watch the documentary and use information from it to help with our blog entry from Monday.
After I'd like you to focus on two questions: one on Groth's typology of rapist and the other on the causes for sexual assault.

1. Explain the three types of rapist according to Groth (anger, power, and sadistic)
2. Identify and explain the causes for sexual assault
