Is there any proof of asportation of the cigarette packages found on the store’s floor?

Learning Goal: I’m working on a law multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Read in the textbook: Joshua Dressler, UNDERSTANDING CRIMINAL LAW (8th ed. 2018) – Chapters 11, 32-33.
A police officer responded to a break in at a convenience store. When the officer arrived, she observed the store’s window had been broken and that numerous unopened cigarette packages were strewn all over the ground. The officer located A, the thief, and arrested him. At the time A was apprehended, he had numerous unopened cigarette packages on his person. A was charged with the theft of goods worth more than $200. The prosecutor valued the theft at over $200 because the value of the cigarette packages on A’s person, as well as the packages that were located on the store’s floor, exceeded $200. The prosecutor theorized that A entered the store, grabbed multiple cigarette packages at once and inadvertently dropped some on his way out of the store. The prosecutor’s theory was bolstered when the store’s owner testified he did not leave cigarette packages on the store’s floor when he locked up for the night. A was convicted of larceny. On appeal A argues there was no proof he moved any of the cigarette packages that were found on the floor. You are an appellate judge who is assigned to the case. Is there any proof of asportation of the cigarette packages found on the store’s floor?

Use at least three scholarly sources and remember to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the READ and ATTEND sections in your essay. Cite your sources in APA format.
Sir Robert Peel implemented his Nine Principles to give guidance to the newly formed New Westminster Police Service. How many of these nine principles are still being used in law enforcement today? List the principles that are still used today, if they have changed – what would they be known as today?
The police use of physical force is a topic that is always in the daily news or a topic of debate, especially when someone is injured or killed. Using the internet, research recent examples of police use of force incidents (from your community or area if possible) and the response of the public and the police. Do you feel the response was justified by the public? Was the police response justified? Why or why not?
You are a new police applicant, with the goal of becoming a full-time police officer. You have been selected for an interview with your local police department, and one of the questions asked is to discuss one of Peel’s Principles. Choose one of the nine principles and examine the implications for law enforcement today.

Hi everyone!

I did a voice thread presentation, so please find the link down below! I hope my discussion questions provide you all with the space to explore your thoughts and opinions on sex discrimination in healthcare amongst the LGTBQ+ community and specifically the influence of section 1557. I definitely learned a lot and I hope you all do too!

3. What was your response to the Health and Human Services Department arguing that “anti-LGTBQ health care discrimination is legal even anti-LGTBQ+ employment is not during the rule of 2020”?
