As a special agent in the initial stages of an investigation, you must apply your critical thinking skills as you assess evidence, depositions, and interviews.

Address the following in your main post:

  • Analyze two of the various types of evidence gathering techniques employed by criminal and regulatory agencies with respect to the explosion and blowout of the well.
  • Describe two specific challenges associated with the role technology played; specifically, with the use of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) in unprecedented depths for gathering evidence, new analytical and field methods, the huge volume of information generated from depositions and interviews from both civil and criminal and expert testimony in the investigation and prosecution of the BP case.
  • Assess two benefits of working in the type of task force set up by the then Assistant Attorney General Breuer, known as the Deepwater Horizon Task Force, in an attempt to synchronize efforts of federal, state, and local authorities in the collection of evidence and reports of interviews, and in the development of witness testimony.

For this discussion, assume you are a special agent with the FBI who has worked on the Enron case. You have now been assigned by your agency to take the lead on the newly formed Wall Street Financial Crimes Task Force to look into possible allegations of criminal wrongdoing by Wall Street executives.

In preparation for your initial meeting with task force members, consider the statutory aspects of the case, size of the case, the evidentiary aspects of the case, potential defendants, and the number of victims.

Address the following in your main post:

  • Propose various types of evidence gathering techniques that could be deployed by specific members of the task force.
  • Determine unique challenges throughout the investigatory and prosecutorial process that a multiagency approach to combat white collar crime of this nature will present.
  • Assess whether the Sarbanes-Oxley Act has enhanced the integrity of the financial markets and the quality of financial reporting.
  • Debate whether the DOJ has a double standard for the rule of law—one of exoneration and impunity for the elite financial and political managerial class and another for those U.S. citizens who challenge the status quo.
