LIFE IS SWEET AND SOUR, ISN'T IT? We are seeking a balance in this life between vigilance against social injustice and, basically, HAPPINESS and SELF-ACTUALIZATION and the L Word - L O V E...The recipe for this balance between SWEET and SOUR is not in a cookbook but is in each one of us: Faith and Hope and Charity with a healthy pinch of "works of mercy" and a genuine sense of compassion for one another.





OR is it retaliation against a whistle-blower?

YOU be the Judge, and, better yet, THE JURY...

1. Trusted Criminals: White Collar Crime In Contemporary Society, 3rd Edition, by David O.


2. Current Perspectives: Readings From InfoTrac College Edition, White Collar Crime, Nicole

Piquero, 2008 (Supplement to Friedrichs Text)

Required Readings

Students will also be responsible for various outside readings that will be assigned two weeks prior

to class discussion. Additional readings may be distributed in class.

Course Description

CRJ 181B. White Collar Crime. This course will introduce students to a variety of white collar

crime issues, including definitional complexities, the causes, frequency and impact of economic

crime, and victim and offender profiles. Governmental corruption, organizational fraud, consumer

and environmental offenses, anti-trust violations and international schemes will be covered.

Students will also become familiar with the methods used to investigate, prosecute and sentence

white collar offenders. Policy considerations will be discussed for controlling national and

international white collar crime.

Goals and Objectives

By the conclusion of this course, students will:

1. Be able to define white collar crime, distinguish it from other types of crime and be familiar with

the difficulty in measuring the occurrence of these offenses and their associated costs.

2. Understand the types of conduct constituting white collar offenses by exploring various historical


3. Be familiar with various theories for the causes of white collar crime on both the individual and

organizational levels.

4. Analyze the complexities of investigating and prosecuting white collar offenders by examining

hypothetical fraud and corruption schemes.

5. Understand the far ranging impact of white collar crime, particularly with reference to

globalization, international monetary markets and state-corporate complicity in illegal conduct.

Page 2 of 7

6. Describe various policy and legislative initiatives for combating white collar crime and the

resulting ethical considerations flowing from the initiatives.

Course Methodology

This course will be taught in a seminar format with extensive class discussion, reliance on case

studies, outside reading and contemporary cases of white collar crime interest. Lectures may include the

use of power-point presentations and overheads. Guest speakers will provide students with practical

realities regarding the investigation and prosecution of white collar crime.

Student Evaluation

Students will be graded on the basis of their participation in classroom discussions, their written

responses to questions presented by the case studies, a mid-term, a final exam as well as maintenance of a

white collar crime journal.

A. Students will be required to prepare written responses to questions posed from two different case

studies during the semester. The typed responses must be 500 to 750 words and double spaced.

Additional research to answer the questions is encouraged, but outside sources must be properly cited.

B. Students will be required to keep a weekly journal, consisting of an article covering any aspect of

white collar crime from a newspaper or magazine. Students must also type a written reaction to the article,

approximately 250 words. The student’s reaction may address issues, concepts and principles of white

collar crime that are addressed in the course. The article selected may include stories about offenders,

crimes, prosecutions and/or sanctions. Each week, two students will be selected in the class to review their

weekly white collar journal entries. All students will be required to report on their journal entries at least

once during the semester. The journal should be maintained in a binder which contains the articles and the

student reactions for each week of class. The journal will be collected at the end of the semester for

grading purposes.

Attendance and Participation

This course will involve a great deal of class discussion. As such, attendance and participation in

class will represent a portion of your grade. I expect all students to be prepared to discuss each assigned

reading prior to class.

School board authorizes investigation, superintendent takes 'vacation'

Story Published: Jul 24, 2009 at 10:05 AM PDT

Story Updated: Jul 24, 2009 at 10:05 AM PDT

LYNWOOD — The Lynwood school board on Wednesday voted 5-0 authorizing an investigation into certain "concerns" they have regarding the district's management, while Superintendent Dhyan Lal agreed to take his scheduled vacation, effective Thursday.

Board members were told not to disclose details of the investigation, their concerns about the superintendent, or the reasons for their decision to conduct the investigation.

Lal is taking his "vacation" through Aug. 7 on the heels of his annual evaluation, in which board members dedicated two special board meetings earlier this month. Board members, however, have not disclosed any information regarding that evaluation.

“There will come a time when all of that comes forward, but not now,” said a board member who asked not to be identified. “[Plus] it’s a personnel matter, so most likely details about his evaluation may never come out.”

Lal is contracted with the district until October of next year and makes approximately $220,000 a year, with benefits.

The school board currently has two options: To buy out his remaining contract through October 2010, or fire him with cause.

But a source at the district said that that wouldn't be a good idea right now considering the district's current deficit.

“The school board can’t fire him now, because there’s no money to buy him out,” said the district official.

What got the district going in the wrong direction was the board's pro hispanic agenda. Dr. Lal,Agopian, Kristen Olsen, and all the people Lal has brought in have promoted it, and this is what has led to the downfall of the district. Hiring of employees must not be based on who you are related to, or the color of your skin, but on your skills, abilities, and attitude towards the mission of an educational institution.All the board's relatives and friends need to go.

I agree with the earlier comment. How can Dr. Tumbstra take over Firebaugh when she covered up for Silverion. On a bigger not how can Macias (who openly comments about smoking weed amongst other things) be appointed as Principal of LMS. This is a joke. What this community needs to do is to form a team of highly educated interracial members so that the needs of all students are met. What the community should not allow is the retention and appointment of thieves.

I believe that it is time for the community to come together and unite to get rid of all the school board members, superintendent, and those close to them. It is disgusting that so much money has been misappropriated and that no one is being blamed, oh but wait the lynwood teachers were recently forced into taking a pay cut so that the school board would be able to "retain" all of the teachers. Why should others have to pay for their mistakes. Enough is Enough, its time for a community coalition

Do you ever remember LUSD with a supt that lasted for more than what their contract calls for? Things that happen in Lynwood are all but for personal reasons mainly politics. What a shame!

Unfortunately, On August 7, Lal will be back from vacation to continue running the district further down. Board's answer that they are broke and can't buy him out is another example of why the Board, Lal and his buddies need to go! District is broke because of Board and Lal.

If anyone would take the time to check, the downward spiral of test scores probably coincides with the advent of block scheduling. Block scheduling is not only counter productive, it is a form of child abuse. How many people in Lynwood are aware that Dr. Lal and his wife wrote a book about block scheduling? Were they using the students of LUSD as guinea pigs??

Just because the board approved an investigation doesn't mean they should be applauded. Solache needs to go as well as the rest of that board. Remember they allowed Lal to to take this district into a downward spiral. Solache was also the saving vote to keep Lal a few years ago.
