Unethical Police Operations In recent years, police action became the view of the world, and in public eye. Every citizen within the U.S is not only worrying about protecting themselves and their family from criminals, but also keeps their eyes on an officer who supposed to serve and protect our citizen daily. This paper will discuss the use of firearms and a receipt of private information, which will also include the discussion of how citizens’ has the right to take advantage of by our policemen. Because of the entire significant differential, all citizenship must take action upon them to affirmative from physical brutality; information abused, and rights violations. Every conflict has its significant implications on administrative and departmental officer procedures.
A lot of people have died because of police officers and the reasons are clear, it is due to criminal activities they have undertaken and then refuse arrest which later causes a spark to ignite between the authorities and the civilians. Other times it is proved that police men just take advantage of their rights and brutally use force against citizens. Are police officers considered fair or brutal towards people? No one can deny that police officers have abused of their authority specially in big cities. Amadou
The Blue Wall of Silence and Police Ethical Culture Jason Jarvis CRMJ 308 Ethics in Criminal Justice AMU James Conroy March 20, 2012 Arguably, every institution in the world possesses its distinctive and personal organizational culture. Police agency also has a culture in the world which seems to be universal. Police in most cities unite in defending the wrong doers among them, this act and culture is inhumane and totally unacceptable. The Blue Shield Wall of Silence is a rule that is unwritten among officers. The rule advocates defending their colleagues when they do an error, misbehave or commit a crime.
Officers use brutality for the wrong reasons such as being racist or discriminating the individual. Police brutality isn’t only happening on our city’s streets but in prison as well. The government and the people living in the city should investigate this matter since their tax paying dollars
Ethnicity and the Police Brittany Howard CJA/344 November 12, 2013 Donna Williams Ethnicity and the Police Police corruption and racial profiling is still alive in today’s society. Often police feel that they are above the law and can commit crimes without consequence. Officers are easily “taken care” of by those who do not abide by the law. This breaks the trust between the community and the police. This creates a negative opinion of police.
In chapter five of Ethical Dilemmas and Decisions in Criminal Justice, Pollock states when one asks most people what the role of policing is in society, the response is some version of “catch criminals” or “fight crime”. (p.105) The majority of police officers are professional and ethical; however a small minority abuses their power. This leads to close suspicion by the public of all police. Police have great power in our society to arrest, use force and also have the power of life and death. Police have two types of perceptions of the police mission, either a crime fighter or public servant.
BANG!!!! “Shots fired” or “Officer down” is all so common in our local communities, backyard and nearby school. The war on drug our local officers and drug dealer in our communities.

The percentages of the people that are arrested in New Orleans are young African American Males. Now are all them all committing horrible crimes like murder? Well some are, but instead of these crooked cops trying to do undercover work they should be stopping the real problems. Many of New Orleans police officers are not in it for the safety of our city. There polices officers that arrested men with weed just to keep it and sell it back to another drug dealer so that they make money off of it.
These four officers kicked King and hit him with their batons more than fifty times while he struggled on the ground. Fortunately for Rodney King there was an amateur photographer by the name of George Holliday who was in the right place at the right time. Holliday captured over two minutes of the beating on video tape. The videotape of the beating was played numerous times on worldwide and became a symbol of police brutality. As a result of the videotaped beating all of the officers were all charged with numerous criminal counts, including the use of excessive force, and filing a false police report.
For example, some officers would take drugs for themselves that they would normally give to the department as evidence to build a case against the offender or offenders. Another example would be that officers would make deals with drug dealers as incentives to get drugs and not make an arrest. Also, monies from drug deals that are seized by police officers sometimes go missing or unreported due to corruption within the department. The most memorable and possibly most famous moment in corruption in policing when it comes to narcotics is the case of Frank Lucas
