Legal Issue #1 1. Legal Issue: Whether the discretionary power used in reasonable grounds by police officers is unrestricted? 2. Relevance to Scenario: This legal issue is relevant to the scenario because when Mr Chopra who is a smoker enters through the metal detector in the airport with a refillable butane blowtorch lighter that is not easily accessible in Australia. The officers use their discretion and detain him even though he informs the authorities that he is a smoker and that they can throw it away. Detaining and implying Mr Chopra will be prosecuted in the full extent of the law for the possession of a blowtorch lighter seems excessive for a minor offense and the legal issue concerning the discretionary power of authorities is relevant.
