Over the past two decades the pine forests of Western North America have experienced major changes due to the Mountain Pine Beetle epidemic that began in 1995. Mountain Pine Beetles are insect parasites that use trees as their hosts in order to mate and lay eggs. After the larva becomes a beetle, the tree is killed and the next generation of beetles set out to find another pine tree and the cycle repeats. Environmentalists have proven the changes in the lifecycle of the pine beetle to be directly correlated with the adaptations of the Mountain Pine and climate change. Since the epidemic began the Mountain Pine Beetle is responsible for affecting millions of acres of forest in the western United States and over 44 million acres in British Columbia.

For the Application of the Criminal Justice System project of the Criminal Justice course, I chose the arrest of John Burke. This case is about the arrest and sentencing of John Burke who had shot and killed Joseph Ronan.

Case facts Ryan G. Anderson, 26 years old, of Lynnwood, Washington was arrested in February 2004 and later charged with five counts of attempted espionage by trying to contact and pass intelligence and military information to al-Qaida (Herbig, 2008). Anderson’s arrest occurred through an FBI sting operation one month before he was to be shipped out to Iraq as a tank crewmember with a Fort Lewis, Washington, National Guard unit. Although FBI officers intercepted the information, Anderson’s actions culminated in attempted treason against the U.S. and U.S. soldiers. The charges included attempting to aid the enemy by passing sketches of the military M1A1 and M1A2 tanks, along with providing a computer disk with his personal information such as his military identification card as well as his military weapons card, military driver’s license and his passport photo (Rivera, 2004a).

The most obvious and simple option is hunting the deer. This, however, is a very controversial approach because some people have a difficult time supporting the killing of innocent animals. The state government has the power to regulate deer hunting. In 1943, Ohio established a limited hunting program to decrease the number of deer. This allows hunters to kill about two hundred thousand deer each year.
“Deer in the US eat 15 million tons of vegetation each year, which costs about $248 million in damage to crops and landscaping in the Northeast alone” (White-tailed deer Overpopulation). If the deer population would be limited then less people would get injured or killed from car collisions and our country would make more
Also, anyone, from large companies to small families, should invest in recycled products, such as recycled wood or paper. According to the article “Solutions to Deforestation”, “Forests around the world have been home to Indigenous peoples for tens of thousands of years. Evidence shows that when Indigenous peoples’ rights to traditional lands and self-determination are respected, forests stay standing. But too often, corporations and governments overlook or intentionally trample the rights of Indigenous peoples” (1). In making this comment, this article shows that deforestation does not only hurt the environment, but it is also pushing Indigenous people out of their land.
