Ethics and Criminal Justice

Research and locate an article or video highlighting a current event that depicts corruption within a policing agency, court system, or correctional facility. Be sure to include a link to the article or video in your post.

Identify if the actions were the result of nonfeasance, misfeasance, or malfeasance, and relate this corruption back to the decision-making process. What decisions resulted (either intentionally or unintentionally) in the corrupt actions depicted in the story? Provide evidence to support your assessment.

Then, respond to two or more of your peers. In your responses, consider the news story they addressed. What evidence is there that leaders discouraged or encouraged the corrupt behaviors? If the story does not address leadership, theorize what leaders may have done to encourage or discourage the corruption.
