Mock crime scene provides final exam for TJC criminal justice students

Professor Jason Waller, who also serves as department chair for TJC’s Law and Public Service Careers, had set up the mock crime scene for his students to “investigate” the simulated crime.

 

The mock crime scene, secured with crime scene tape, included empty alcohol containers, fired bullet casings, stage-prop-style weapons, imitation blood stains, and a crime scene dummy that simulated a body. There was also a dirt area outside with shoe impressions.

Fred Burton

The following piece is part of an occasional series in which Fred Burton, Stratfor’s vice president of security, reflects on his storied experience as a counterterrorism agent for the U.S. State Department.

Late last month, the world of police cooperation got just a little wider as the Palestinian Authority joined Interpol. To an old counterterrorism agent like me, the vote to allow the Palestinians into the organization, which helps connect police agencies worldwide, represents an important shift in the world of law enforcement.

Palestinian-directed terrorist attacks occurred all over the globe on my watch, especially in the 1980s. As a frequent target of those attacks, Israel tried to delay the Interpol vote, arguing that Palestine was not a state and
