Here are two typical undercover police operations:
1. Undercover officer approaches Able and asks where he can buy some crack cocaine. Able steers the undercover (u/c, in the biz) to Baker and says, “My man here can help you.” The u/c then asks Baker for “two.” Baker reaches to a window sill and removes two vials containing crack, hands them to the u/c who gives Baker $10. The u/c leaves the scene, radios a description of Able and Baker and watches, from a safe distance, as his back-up team swoops down and makes the arrest, recovering the rest of the “stash” by the window sill and the $10 bill in Baker’s pocket.

Jesse James goes into a bank, goes up to a teller, produces a handgun and requests a quantity of currency, preferably United States greenbacks. The teller obliges and James leaves. The teller, a quick thinker, hits the silent alarm button and the police soon arrive. They find James and chase him.

Crimes are considered a breach of the peace. And yet crimes, for the most part, are wrongs committed against individuals. Discuss the differences and similarities between civil and criminal law; who gets to “punish” the offender—the government or the individual? Or both? Why? Who, in your opinion has the greater right? The greater responsibility? Why? Use the OJ Simpson case as an example.

Civil forfeiture rules allow the government to take proceeds of a crime even when they have been used to buy something else (a car, a house). But sometimes that seizure involves innocent people.
