Problem Question
John went to the store The security guard suspected him of stealing a toaster. John was taken to a waiting room where he was told that he was needed to give evidence. He stayed there quietly for 2 hours. Unknown to John, the guard locked the door. After not finding a toaster on him John was about to be released but on his way out an employee of the store stood with a bucket of water and told him that he has to clean him of his dirty thoughts of stealing from the store and threw the
water at him. After that hard experience John went home to relax. He sat by the window to look at cars and pedestrians passing on the highway. John was the victim of extreme racial harassment by
persons using the highway. He called the police. The police officer who came was disruptive and made John feel very uncomfortable. John asked him to leave but he told him that this is his house
now and the police officer stayed for 3 hours in John’s apartment. Advice John on any claims in tort
Guiding questions:
1) consider the following potential tortfeasors: the store employees, the highway users, the
police officer.
