Monday, April 10. 2017

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

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we move into criminal law procedures and will focus on arrests, arrest procedures, and your rights upon arrest. You will work on the R. v. Macooh (1993) case, questions 1, 3, 4, and 5 on page 90 and questions 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5 on page 97 of your All About Law text.

B Block Law 12 - Today we'll talk about: firearms (the Firearms Act along with non-restricted, restricted and prohibited weapons); street racing; prostitution (soliciting, procuring, and living off the avails of) and obscenity.

What is obscene? We'll look at the legal definition of "obscenity" (Criminal Code section 163 subsection 8 and the community standards of tolerance test) so that we can understand the difference between the subjective and objective beliefs of obscenity. Immoral acts are distinguished from crimes on the basis of the social harm they cause. Acts that are believed to be extremely harmful to the general public are usually outlawed, whereas acts that only the harm the actor themselves are more likely to be tolerated. Acts that are illegal because they are viewed as a threat to morality are called public order crimes.

If there's time, for a different case of obscenity we'll look at "Sniffy the Rat" and artist Rick Gibson. To either giggle or be horrified check out the CBC story here. Is it Really Art or is it Obscene? Philosophy Talk "Art and Obscenity"

Lastly I'll have you work on questions 1-5 on page 240 of the All About Law text.
