As a CBT employee, I believe following these five simple guidelines helps keep me in line with the code of business conduct and ethics. Be Honest The foundation of Zions’ code is honesty. Employees are asked to be “absolutely and completely honest in every way and in every circumstance” (Simmons). Bank employees have access to confidential information. Employees must respect the clients’ information and the bank’s reputation.

They look for bombs at checkpoints at all airports; they inspect rail cars, and patrol subways, and work with local authorities. How long has agency been around? The TSA was created in response to September 11, 2001 attacks on American soil. On December 10, 2001 President George W. Bush nominated John Magaw and the senate confirmed him in January of 2002.
If the government feels the need to track every citizen does that mean there looking at all of us as possible terrorist? Technology provides the government with both public and private information. This is a dysfunction created by the United States which is the spying on American citizens. Although some may feel it’s a violation there are some situations that violate no one’s rights. Police are able to use technology freely in public spaces, in which people have no expectation of privacy.
If police cannot help one's issue, what is the purpose of being a cop? They are supposed to protect and keep peace in the community, not stereotype others and assuming that they are illegal immigrants. In Bolanos' case, charging her for selling a phone card should not label her as a criminal, however later caused her to have complicated proceedings with immigration and custom enforcement agent to involve deportation. Police dropped charges for selling phone cards and understood that it was not a serious crime, but still they put her in custody while they searched her immigration status. This is why, “Immigrants, especially those perceived to be undocumented, are frequently victims of crime.
American citizens were once protected by the Eighth Amendment right of cruel and unusual punishment; however, Homeland Security and law enforcement officials believe in the interest of the United States that the use of torture for interrogations is legal. Although torture is illegal in the United States, yet the CIA and law enforcement officials secretly kidnaps individuals suspected of terrorism and transport that individual to another country for interrogation. One method of interrogation on accused terrorist is water boarding. The prisoner is bound to an inclined board, feet raised and head slightly below the feet. Cellophane is wrapped over the prisoner's face and water is poured over him.

The Homeland Security department is there to investigate and bring to justice anyone who breaks these laws, foreign or domestic. USA Patriot Act The purpose of the Patriot Act is to discourage and discipline known terrorist and their actions in the United States and its partners. It also enhances police investigatory equipment. The USA Patriot Act states as its purpose: “1) To strengthen U.S. measures to prevent, detect and prosecute international money laundering and financing of terrorism; 2) To subject to special scrutiny foreign jurisdictions, foreign financial institutions, and classes of international transactions or types of accounts that are susceptible to criminal abuse; 3) To require all appropriate elements of the financial services industry to report potential money laundering; 4) To strengthen measures to prevent use of the U.S. financial system for personal gain by corrupt foreign officials and facilitate repatriation of stolen assets to the citizens of countries to whom such assets belong” (FinCin, 2012, pg.
On the other hand, NSA Spying is actually very helpful when it comes to attacks that can harm us as a country. The NSA spies on potential people who are capable of committing terrorist or domestic terrorist attacks upon the U.S. This spying has helped us terminate terrorist attacks before they occur, attacks that could be put on the same scale of destruction as 9/11. The NSA is a very helpful government organization that has help fight the war on terror and extremist. NSA Spying should not be allowed because we as Americans have the right to privacy.
The Patriot Act alone makes it allowable to search and seize US citizen’s papers and effects without probable cause, “to assist in a terror investigation” (CCAPA, 2003). Using this, the NSA and other government agencies have been collecting phone records, personal records, internet usage habits, and other meta data of innocents without their knowledge (Kopczynski, 2013). The American Civil Liberties Union has filed suit in court challenging the interpretation of the Patriot Act as a violation of Americans’ constitutional rights. The Patriot Act expanded the government's power to use eavesdropping, surveillance, access to financial and computer records and other tools to track terrorist suspects (Lichtblau, 2003). This has opened the door for the NDAA which seemingly gave the government oversight of your everyday lives.
The day after the attack, President Bush was already working on the Department of Homeland Security. Within a number of months, the department was created. The Department of Homeland Security is essential to the American government, but needs to make vital
