Making Choices: The Moral Aspects of Policing

Making Choices: The Moral Aspects of Policing | Xpose Corrupt Courts | Scoop.it
Being moral is to make good choices between right and wrong or good and bad actions.

It applies to both individuals and organizations. With regard to the police function, a citizen cannot expect the police to operate only legally — but that they must also act morally. For without moral considerations, policing would become both ineffective and unbearable in a free society.

Permit me to explain, police officers, of necessity, daily exercise moral choices called “professional discretion” in deciding whether or not to make an arrest. The proper use of this discretion requires police to be educated and well-trained in order to make sound and professional judgments in the course of their duties. These decisions involve a number of factors (but not limited to) the seriousness of the offense, whether an arrest will aid in resolving the problem, the existence of competing priorities for police resources, the availability of legal alternatives, or taking into consideration honest mistakes and deciding that the situation is best served by a “warning and release.”

These are examples of more current moral decisions: permitting political protesters to march in the street, or occupy a park contrary to law, not arresting adults for the possession of a small amount of marijuana, not determining immigration status when dealing with “undocumented” persons who are crime victims. The law in these cases may permit an arrest, but in doing so the community would not consider the arrests to be “right” or “good.” In the above situations, the police officer could take action but choose not to do so. The decision, therefore, is based not on whether the behavior was illegal, but rather on whether taking enforcement action would be, in this situation, a moral act. Nevertheless, whenever police use this discretion it must always be done with openness, accountability, and never for personal reasons.

Rob Duke's curator insight, July 6, 6:39 PM

An interesting blog from another Chief.  I'd point here to the Weber, Price, Nas article in the readings.  It's an economic article on the ways that we might say that corruption actually helps the community.  It posits that there are 3 conditions where an official might not follow the law or administrative rules:

1. There would be a clear case of injustice for the individual in this case.

2. The community impacted by the law is disadvantaged in a way that they don't have the capacity to engage the system to educate policy setters with factors that may make the law unreasonable in application or outcome for this particular community (schools to prison pipeline, for example).

3. Social norms have moved more quickly than has the law (e.g. marijuana policy).

As the Chief above suggests, I think we should follow the rules except when we can neither find reasonableness nor uphold human dignity, but I think we need a framework to reject the law.  We can't do so to benefit any particular group (rich vs. poor; black vs. white, etc.) nor can we do so to enrich ourselves; but, if we do so for one of these 3 reasons, I think we can articulate ethical reasons for exercising discretion.

 

Please let me know what you think....

Video shows Chicago officer firing on black youths in car

Video shows Chicago officer firing on black youths in car | Xpose Corrupt Courts | Scoop.it
CHICAGO (AP) — A retired judge has released dashboard camera video from a Chicago Police car that shows a white officer repeatedly firing his handgun into a car full of black youths who had been pulled over for speeding and posed no apparent threat.

The judge, who handled a criminal trial of one of the teens, released the December 2013 video as the department has been offering assurances about police conduct while refusing to turn over dash-cam videos itself.

Two teenagers were injured in the shooting and left lying, handcuffed and bleeding, in the street with no apparent effort to get them urgent medical treatment. Their families, who sued the city in federal court, allege officers forcibly removed them later from a hospital while they still were recovering and put them through lengthy questioning even though one was crying out in pain and the other was bleeding so profusely he had to be taken back to the hospital.

The city and police department got a judge to issue a protective order to keep the video from being released by any parties to the civil case, which resulted in a $360,000 settlement.

But that did not prohibit former Cook County Judge Andrew Berman from releasing the video, which had been introduced as evidence in the trial he handled of one of the teens. The boy was acquitted of possession of a stolen vehicle and misdemeanor criminal trespass to a vehicle.

Berman said he felt obligated to make the video public and gave it to The Chicago Reporter magazine, which first reported on it Thursday (http://bit.ly/1BldEnv ). The retired judge told The Associated Press "it just showed a reckless and callous disregard for human life by somebody who is sworn to serve and protect."

"No one knows for sure, but my strong gut feeling is that these shots never would have been fired if the kids in the car were white," Berman said.

The shooting, one of hundreds in a city struggling with violence, drew little attention at the time. But the release of the video has placed it among the growing number of instances of questionable police conduct against African Americans nationwide.

POLICE BRUTALITY - Miami Cop Shoots Homeless Man 5 Times & Kills Him In Front Of Terrified Children -


MIAMI - 
A city of Miami police officer shot a man Thursday morning at Gibson Park in Overtown, authorities confirmed.

Sky 10 was above the scene at 350 NW 13th Street shortly before 11 a.m. as police were seen speaking to several people.

Crime scene tape was put up just outside a football field.

According to witnesses, a police officer, identified as Antonio Torres, shot a homeless man who was holding a metal pole five times. They said the homeless man regularly hangs out at the park and wasn't a threat to police.

"He was a homeless man, wasn't bothering nobody," witness Nichelle Green said. "The man walks around, we see him every morning with his stick, the same little stick that he had in his hand when the police officer shot him five times."

"Was there an altercation?" Local 10 News reporter Glenna Milberg asked.

"Man didn't have a chance to say nothing to police," Green said.

Miami Police Chief Rodolfo Llanes said the shooting happened after officers responded to calls about a violent disturbance at Gibson Park. The man was shot when he refused to drop the pipe.

Witnesses said the officer was trying to get the homeless man to leave the park where children were playing at, but said the homeless man was not being aggressive.

Miami police spokeswoman Frederica Burden said the homeless man later died from his injuries at Jackson Memorial Hospital. His identity has not been released pending notification of next of kin.

"The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the incident due to the fact that they have recently begun investigating all of the department's police-involved shootings," Burden said. 

Torres, a 20-year veteran of the police department, first made local headlines when he was injured in a motorcycle accident on the Dolphin Expressway in 2007.

He has been reassigned pending the outcome of the investigation, which is standard procedure.

Children lose childhoods in immigrant detention

The unaccompanied children are housed in a labyrinthine network of more than 90 state-licensed shelters, foster homes and detention centers that the government describes as "safe havens".

 

The system has repeatedly failed to hold abusers accountable, despite a federal law that makes sexual contact with a detainee a crime punishable by up to 15 years in prison, the investigation found. The Office of Refugee Resettlement, the federal agency responsible for the children's care, has no specific system that tracks abuse allegations all the way through the investigative process â€" from outcry to outcome. [...] for the first time, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by the Chronicle, the government has released copies of 101 "significant incident reports" from March 2011 to March 2013 involving abuse allegations against staff members.

 

The Chronicle reviewed thousands of pages of records from federal, state and law enforcement agencies in five states and interviewed officials, former shelter staff and residents. â€" Children and teenagers reported having sexual contact â€" ranging from kissing to unwanted touching to intercourse â€" with staff in Texas, Florida, New York and Illinois, the federal records show. â€" The Office of Refugee Resettlement relies on state childcare licensing and local police to investigate abuses of the children in its care, instead of notifying the FBI of serious allegations.

 

In the hands of local police and prosecutors, criminal cases have crumbled because of sloppy detective work, communication gaps with federal officials and jurisdictional confusion. â€" Youths in ORR custody in Texas were molested as they slept, sexually harassed and seduced by staff members during the past decade, records from state childcare licensing investigators and law enforcement show. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who authored the 2008 amendment that allows for federal prosecution of those who sexually abuse youths in ORR care, said in a statement that she was "extremely troubled" by the cases identified in the Chronicle's investigation. In response to the Chronicle's findings, she wrote a letter to the White House office reviewing ORR's Prison Rape Elimination Act regulation, urging regulatory officials to swiftly enact the provision to better protect children.

 

Instead of entering immigration detention centers, youths are handed over to ORR, which houses the vast majority in state-licensed shelters and releases about 90 percent of them to relatives or other sponsors in the U.S. while their immigration cases are pending.

 

Dozens of workers were fired or disciplined in connection with sexual, physical and verbal abuses, maltreatment, inadequate supervision and inappropriate behavior and relationships. The FBI came out to investigate allegations that a 41-year-old worker named Belinda Leal had sexually abused a string of teenage boys detained in a shelter in Nixon. [...] federal prosecutors determined they lacked jurisdiction to charge Leal under a federal law criminalizing sexual abuse of ward because it specifically applied to inmates in Department of Justice custody. A jury convicted the worker on six state charges and he served 14 months in prison, but several charges were overturned on appeal.

 

Since Congress tightened the federal law, ORR has not notified the FBI of any abuse allegations involving staff members, said Jallyn Sualog, director of the children's program for ORR. Kelly Kleinvachter, a national FBI spokeswoman, did not respond to specific questions about whether the agency defers to local law enforcement or would investigate abuses within the federal shelter network if notified.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney and FBI Assistant Director Announce Charges Against Founder of Non-Profit Organization for Defrauding Parents of Abducted Children

Manhattan U.S. Attorney and FBI Assistant Director Announce Charges Against Founder of Non-Profit Organization for Defrauding Parents of Abducted Children | Xpose Corrupt Courts | Scoop.it
Ngozi Odochi (Godwell) Nwokocha's insight:

Manhattan's U.S. Attorney and FBI Assistant Director Announce Charges Against Founder of Non-Profit Organization for Defrauding Parents of Abducted Children U.S. Attorney’s OfficeMarch 31, 2015Southern District of New York(212) 637-2600FBI New York Press Office(212) 384-21Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Diego Rodriguez, Assistant Director-in-Charge of the New York Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), today announced charges against PETER SENESE, the Founding Director of the I CARE Foundation (“I CARE”), which advertises itself as a “self-funded non-profit organization dedicated to preventing child abduction and trafficking.” Since at least 2013, SENESE allegedly defrauded parents whose children were victims of international abduction by falsely representing that he, working with the worldwide resources of I CARE, could rescue their children and return to them to the United States in exchange for money for his purported rescue operation expenses. SENESE was arrested this morning in Brooklyn, New York, and will be presented later today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said: “As alleged, Peter Senese fed a pack of lies to desperate parents by telling them, among other things, that he and his company could, for a price, locate and recover their internationally kidnapped children. In fact, he could do no such thing, but that didn’t stop him from allegedly repeatedly reaching out to the parents for more money to fund his non-existent rescue mission. This type of alleged fraud that preys on the especially vulnerable and desperate is a top priority for us, and we will work to ensure those who commit these outrageous crimes are held to strict account.”
