The Role of Leadership
1. What are some of the fundamental reasons we see police officers engage in misconduct? Why are these ethical violations so serious and how do they impact their relationship with the community? Fully explain and support your answer.
2. The use of force, i.e., when force should be used and in what manner, by law enforcement is constantly an issue for debate. With that, explain your view on the use of force by police. As part of the response give a situation (real or hypothetical) that illustrates your view. Be careful to fully explain and support your answer.
Now with Q#2 in mind, the following video is presented (copy and paste the URL in your browser to view it). Here you will see a Trooper using what was ultimately deemed to have used excessive force as it regards apprehending a female speeder. Ultimately it costs him his job, and earned her a 6 figure settlement. That aside, pls know there are clearly different views on what the outcome here should have been (i.e., some siding with the officer and others the female speeder).
However for us the question to consider (as you draft your initial response to Q#2) is such actions excessive or justified. In answering such questions pls ensure to go beyond just opinion, i.e., support via referenced examples and or data.
Required individual response for EACH question is 750 words with citations and two references in APA format.
