atleast 100 words each for these 2 challenges. Then at least 50 word response to 2 students attached. All answered seperatly. Dont criticize the students work just give something insightful or relate it to something else.
1.When discussing ethics and morals, a common topic of debate involves whether these concepts are relative (i.e., our ideas regarding right and wrong will vary significantly based upon our upbringing, culture, religious beliefs, etc.) or absolute (i.e., certain actions are absolutely right or wrong, regardless of our upbringing, culture, religious beliefs, etc.).
In your opinion, is all morality relative (i.e., simply an individual's defintion of right and wrong), or are certain morale concepts absolute? Should everyone have the right to decide which behaviors are acceptable or unacceptable?
Could variances in the manner in which criminal justice professionals view morals and ethics as either absolute or relative impact day-to-day decision making? Explain your answer.
2. Police officers and other criminal justice professionals are afforded a significant amount of discretion when performing their duties. For example, many officers have the ability to independently determine whether they should pursue or ignore minor violations. Unfortunately, this comes at a price. When individuals have discretion, prejudices and negative perceptions of groups or individuals can influence their decision making.
1) Discuss the extent to which personal prejudices could negatively influence criminal justice professionals' decision making processes.
2) Is it ever right for a law enforcement officer to allow his or her decision to be based (in whole or in part) upon his or her personal prejudices or negative perceptions of groups or individuals?
3) What steps could criminal justice leaders take to limit the extent to which discretion can be utilized inappropriately?
