JUS 455 Final Project: Case Study Ethical Analysis Overview If you are going to work at any position in the criminal justice system, you will be faced with ethical dilemmas. This is a f act that you cannot change or control. What you can control is how you react to those situations. One wrong reaction could cost you your career. In today’s society, our actions are constantly being monitored. Now more than ever, justice workers’ actions are being called into question. While you are expected to do the righ t thing when others are watching, the true test of character is what you do when no one is watching. In the final assessment, you will play the role of criminal justice worker depicted in one of the three scenario s below . You will use the skills gained in this course to properly identify the legal dilemma(s), identif y the facts relevant to each dilemma, and describe the course of action you would take and why. Additionally, you will identify what personal values you may call upon in making a decision, what duties you have based on the situation, a nd whether or not tho se values and duties are in conflict. This assessment addresses the following course outcomes:  Analyze changes in society for determining their impact on ethics in law enforcement  Analyze moral foundations for their impact on ethics in the United States  Assess the role of society for its impact on creating or changing laws  Assess ethical boundaries of a criminal justice employee for determining an effective course of action when confronted with e thical d ilemmas The project is supported by three formative milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules One, Two , and Five . Th e final paper will be submitted in Module Seven . Scenario #1 Joe is a corrections officer in a juvenile detention center and works on a unit housing 15 offenders, many of whom suffer from mental health problems. Joe has worked there for about two months. He feels comfortable with his job and has been accepted by the other staff members. He has not had any significant problems with the juveniles and is ge nerally enjoying his work. It is lunchtime on Monday, and Joe is in the dining room supervising the juveniles as they eat. At one table sit six juveniles, o ne of whom is a 17 -year -old named Brian , who m Joe thinks has a mental disability. Brian is displayi ng offensive behavior that is so bad that Joe cannot eat his own meal. Brian keeps adding ketchup in vast quantities to every dish, then slurping it from the plate. Brian uses his hands instead of a fork. Brian talks with h is mouth full, causing him to spi t his food across the table in front of the other juveniles. Joe can see that the other juveniles are repulsed by Brian’s behavior and a re getting upset by his actions. 2 Joe is surprised to see his coworker and mentor Darren suddenly get up from where he i s seated, go over to Brian, grab him by his shirt, and move him away from the table. Darren takes Brian off to the kitchen and returns with a large mixing bowl. In front of everyone, Darren tell s Brian to scrape out what is left of his meal into the large bowl. Darren then takes Brian to the center of the dining room floor, puts the bowl of food on the floor, and tells him to ea t. Darren tells Brian that he has disgusting manners, and if he is going to act like an animal while eating, he may as well get dow n on the floor like a dog and eat from his bowl. Darren tells Brian to stay on the floor and lick his bowl clean, like the animal that he is. The other juveniles are visibly upset at what Darren has done. Joe does not do or say anything to Darren while th is is going on, though he is taken aback by his coworker’s actions. Later, Darren explains to Joe and other staff who were present that the reason he acted this way was to shock Brian into understanding that his table manners were inapprop riate. Darren tho ught if he used “tough love” on Brian that he would be less likely to act that way in the future. Scenario #2 You are working the midnight shift as a police officer. You rec eive a call to respond to a one -car accident where the car left the roadway and im pacted with a tree. Upon your arrival, you see the badly damaged car up against the tree. There are no skid marks apparent and no witnesses around. You approach the car and find the apparent driver behind the wheel. You immediately recognize the driver to be the mayor of your town. You immediately notice signs that the mayor is impaired by alcohol, including the smell of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath, the slurring of his speech, and the lethargy he is exhibiting. The mayor tells you that he s werved to avoid a dog, lost control and hit the tree. The mayor is not injured. When you ask the mayor if he has consumed alc ohol, he tells you that he was at retirement dinner and only had one glass of wine. The mayor asks you to just complete an accident report and give him a ride home. You question him further, telling him you are concerned that he was driving while impaired. The mayor tells you that he is not im paired and not to worry about anything because you never actually saw him driving. The mayor goes on to tell you that he will not say anything to anyone, and he lets you know that he has a lot of influence with what goes on at the police station, and that he has had his eye on you as an up -and -comer. You know that you could just complete an accide nt report identifying the cause of the accident as swerving to avoid an animal in the roadway. If you do not tell anyone that the mayor was drinking and he doe s not tell anyone, what i s the worst that could happen? Scenario #3 You are a new officer. An armed robbery takes place on your route where the store clerk has been stabbed and you respond with numerous other, more experienced officers. At the scene, you and another experienced officer find a car parked in an odd manner, adjacent to the store that got robbed. One officer reviews the surveillance footage and is able to broadcast a description of the suspect. You run the license plate on the car you found and learn that the owner matches the general description of the suspect. Addition ally, you learn that the registered owner of the car only lives a couple of blocks away. You and the more experienced officer respond to this address to attempt to locate the car owner and see if they were involved. When you get to the apartment of the reg istered owner, you notice that the lights are on within the apartment and you can hear noises coming from within. No one responds to your knocks on the door. You radio this information into the shift commander, and ask permission to kick the door in based upon the circumstances. The shift commander radios back that you should not enter, and to secure the apartment until detectives arrive. Your more experienced partner becomes upset and st ates that he is not going to let the detectives make his arrest. 3 Wit h that, he kicks the door in and you both enter the apartment and locate the car owner. Ultimately, the officer who observed the suspect on surveillance video comes to the apartment and positively identifies this person as the person who committed the arme d robbery. He is taken into custody. Detectives arrive on scene. Your partner tells the detectives that the door was partially opened and that the suspect eventually came to the do or where he was identified. Your partner also tells the detectives that they may want to get a search warrant as there is a bloodied knife under the mattress in the bedroom. Detectives get a search warrant and do find the knife. Your partner tells you that he will take care of the report. In the report, he document s the story outl ined above, including that the suspect ultimately came to the door. He also leaves out the fact that he searched around inside the apartment, findi ng the knife before the detectives got to the scene. The case has proceeded to trial, and you are aware that the defendant’s lawyer has filed a motion to suppress evidence, stating that the police made an illegal entry by kicking their way into the apartment. The prosecutor says there is nothing to worry about because th e report clearly indicates that the door wa s partially open, and that the defendant willingly opened the door and came out after a short period.
