Re rent: under an assured shorthold tenancy, if the tenant is still present when the fixed term ends, the tenancy automatically becomes a statutory periodic tenancy. The tenant must still pay the rent, and the landlord is entitled to keep it.

None of this has any bearing on a Section 21 notice, as the judge's role is purely to determine whether or not the landlord has followed the correct procedure.

Re time: I don't have personal experience of this; but from reading around the subject, it seems that we're talking weeks rather than months. This may be because the tenant will already have h

Sorry i was in bed. I'm in New England US
Hmm, while you're here, does this user's arguments hold water?
Q: Can a cop direct a pharmacist to fill a known fraudulent prescription in order to convict a subject of a higher crime?

BreakskaterIf cops are responding to a known fraudulent prescription, ask the pharmacist to stall the subject until they arrive so they can arrest the subject, but, instead of making the arrest, direct the pharmacist to fill the known fraudulent prescription in order to arrest the subject for a higher crime...

Just hoping I'm not massively off-point with it; entrapment isn't a substantive defence in Australia.
Let me look
The police can use civilians, but they cannot force the pharmacist to do that - it says "direct" which connotes requisite.
They can ask the pharmacist to fill it, because it
is an increased charge
but he cannot be directed to and can say no
Ah, right.
12:10 PM
It would also be against the law for the pharmasist to do that
but again, they can use civilians and it's not entrapment b/c that is what he set out to do
I would find it hard to believe it ever happened thou
I doubt it.
So to clarify: the police could ask them to do it, but the pharmacist can refuse. But if the pharmacist did not refuse, it would not be entrapment?
12:12 PM
entrapment is only when you entice someone into committing a crime they would not otherwise have committed
So the very technical answer to the question is "No", because of the nature of the wording. Wow.
I suspect that the asker is pushing a certain agenda, though.
I agree
I see that a lot
or enough
Judging by the last line of their question, too :P
12:13 PM
I have worked with the cops both defending them and against, and they don't typically do things like that
whats the other
i missed it
> This law in general is making something that is unfair legal and should be revisited by congress
Sadly, "fair" isn't always "legal".
The question alternates its wording.
Right. For sure. and I mean, it's possible a cop would ask. And it's also possible a pharmacist would do it if they are filling bad scripts and taking flak from the DEA
The title says "direct", but the question body says "ask"
Yeah i just noticed that
So, it could be
It is also unclear on whether the pharmacist knows that it is a fradulent script or not.
12:16 PM
No, i think from the question the pharmacist must know....
because how would they take the request from the cop otherswise
and they were asked to keep him htere
They could just say that he's a person of interest.
And ask them to complete the transaction as usual.
Cops do ask to stall all the time ( bad check cases this happens a lot)
I suppose it depends on whether the culture is such that asking to stall is enough to signal to the pharmacist that they're going to be presented a fraudulent script.
IMO it could be for any number of reasons... but that's just my intuition.
Its sort of like when a cop poses as a prostitute....its not entrapment because the "perpetrator" asks to have the conspiracy begin with the original soliciitation
I read it like the pharacist xcalled
said 'responding to a..."
Could be.
12:19 PM
so i took that to mean the pharma called cops with suspecting it was a bad script
the question isn't very clear
whats the other question they wrote?
It was clarified in comments somewhere...
other question?
No, I think it's just the one - they've asked and answered their question.
Oh, I thought you said something like based on prior questions
Their only question, and answer.
yeah, that is always seemingly bizarre
to me, you should be seeking an answer before asking
There's some comments on jqning's answer that fill out the situation a bit more.
@Dave the felony crime of attempt to obtain a prescription by fraud is already committed when the prescription is either verbally phoned or written and confirmed to be invalid by calling the doctor's office, and especially when the subject is there trying to pick it up. The second crime is possession or trafficking which can only occur in a pharmacy by mistakenly giving drugs out and subject busted later or knowingly dispensing a fraudulent prescription. The question is can a cop ask a pharmacist to do that? This may have been planned between cop and pharmacist before he arrived. I don't know — Breakskater Sep 15 at 3:44
12:21 PM
I'll have to look at the thread. I just looked at the excerp you put on
Maybe not, it seems like even the OP hasn't defined the parameters of the scenario :P
yeah, bizaree
i'm dyslexic this morning
Eh, morning keyboard troubles
not enough coffee
I'm not a coffee drinker - not for wakefulness, anyway. I drink it because I like it, but very rarely.
12:24 PM
I am both...wake up and a lover of it...so i tend to have too much
You must be getting ready for bed
I stay up too late and wake too early!
Yeah, I tend to do that, too.

Okay, so in common law countries, the main source of law is past cases.

I know
I read about it
you mean what Judges has decided throughout the time
So there are other doctrines that allow for defense - the Castle Doctrine, Stand Your Ground laws.
doctrines are the ideas of those who are expert in law
am i right ?
they try to find better way to deal with different cases
They are... the principles that have been upheld throughout time, either by judgements or by laws.

You could write an article that compares the principles which allow people who are attacked to defend themselves in different systems of law.

in my country there are criminal courts which have the jurisdiction to give sentence

You should research the case - there is a resources list somewhere.
