...Misconduct, Corruption and Brutality in the Police Department Danyale Dorsey April 25, 2013 CJA/214 Todd Hill Misconduct, Corruption and Brutality in the Police Department What is this all about? Brutality, Corruption, and Misconduct has become a common occurrence in police departments today. For a better understanding of what these things mean, the book defines police corruption as acts involving the misuse of authority by a police officer in a manner designed to produce personal gain for himself, herself or for others. Misconduct is inappropriate actions taken by police officers in connection with their official duties which may lead to injustice and sometimes discrimination. Brutality is the use of excessive force, usually physical, but can be potentially a form of verbal attacks and psychological intimidation by a police officer. These types of accusations can be damaging to a police department and its link to the community that it is sworn to protect and serve. Police Corruption and Misconduct Case One: The former Police Chief, his wife, and five other officers from the Romulus, Michigan police department were indicted in a corruption scandal earlier this year. The allegations for the five officers were that there was misconduct going on in the department drug enforcement unit. These former officers of the drug unit were allegedly stealing thousands of dollars as well as drugs with a host of other charges stemming from the use of hookers, drugs while on duty...

Check Point Police Misconduct Response

...Check Point Police Misconduct Response September 13, 2013 I would define police brutality as something that occurs when a police officer acts with excessive force by using the amount of force with regards to a subject that is more than necessary. Excessive force by law enforcement officers is a violation of a person's rights. Excessive force is not subject to a precise definition, but it is generally beyond the force a reasonable and prudent law enforcement officer would use under the circumstances (www.definitions.uslegal.com). I feel that police brutality happens when an officer has the subject under control and then might hit the subject with a black stick. When trying to get a suspect to comply with orders given by an officer, the amount of force should be used in only the minimum amount to gain control of a situation. Police brutality is a direct violation of the laws within the police force. This is a form of police misconduct.  The violation of state and federal laws or the violation of individuals' constitutional rights by police officers; also when police commit crimes for personal gain. Police misconduct and corruption are abuses of police authority. Sometimes used interchangeably, the terms refer to a wide range of procedural, criminal, and civil violations. Misconduct is the broadest category. Misconduct is "procedural" when it refers to police who violate police department rules and regulations; "criminal" when it refers to police who violate state and......

Police misconduct can be define as false confession, false arrest, falsified of evidence and lying under the oath. For many years police crimes have went unreported and punishments are never given. We now have to put an end to these wrongful duties taken by police officers around the world. Have you ever experience police brutality or discrimination? Have you ever heard the police officers lying under the oath? All of these are some examples of police misconduct. Police misconduct is illegal actions performed by the police officers. Theses wrongful duties can range from false arrest, police brutality, falsified evidence, false confession lying under the oath and falsification of documents. The rules that govern the police in a certain area is what constitutes police misconduct. In the 1820’s the acts of police misconduct were normally towards poor labor workers. The way police misconduct is handled in the Atlanta area has greatly aided the culture of continued and unpunished conducts of police against civilians. In the case of Kathryn Johnston Fulton county police shot and killed a 92 year old women who lived in her home for 17 years. Three undercover police came to Kathryn’s home with a no knock warrant. A few months before Kathryn’s neighbor home was broken into and the lady was rape, a year......

Heads of the academic community and financial healthcare industry mutually consider these defiance to represent the encouragement of the uncertain ethical environment of the 1980's, a collapse of inner and outside control, and a breakdown of individual personality on the part of a few personalities. Violations of ethics by financial managers of healthcare are dangerous, since they habitually stay obscured from view up to the time they explode into a complete flame of outrage, continuing to fume extensively after their detection, demanding a massive charge not only in dollars and cents but in respect and status. Throughout the past years there have been several situations of immense fraud concerning financial managers of healthcare, such that just in 1992, the breaches conveyed to Healthcare Financial Management Association(HFMA)'s Executive Committee were as follows: Two hospitals jointly condemned to prison an individual who was a vice president in one of these hospitals, and at the same time director of patient's accounts in......

How to Avoid Professional Misconduct

...Human Resource Management Article Yuri Caicedo How to Avoid Professional Misconduct Professional misconducts might happen when you don’t expect it. For instance, a child could be physical abused by a teacher. Professionals such as teachers, engineers, doctors, lawyers, architects, barbers, and veterinarians need to get licenses to work in their fields, in which you can find codes of professional conduct. To be license you need to register with the state you practice in and meet the standards for that profession. The codes of professional conduct are rooted in ethics. These ethics are values, and what differentiate the right and wrong action. Many companies don’t require employees with licenses but these companies have their own set of codes of conduct or ethics, and they make their employees to follow. These codes of conduct were made to prevent public from irresponsible professionals. In certain professions there are codes of conduct with different rules. However, the majority of professions have the codes of conduct with similar rules. An item normally found in the code of conduct is the gross of negligence or gross of incompetence, which means that are professional does not have basic ability to work.

Causes of Academic Misconduct

...Causes of Academic Misconduct Academic misconduct is any kind of cheating that goes on in association with official academic activity. Academic dishonesty is epidemic in all levels of education. The causes of misconduct vary. “Researchers have studied the connection of cheating to personal characteristics, demographics, contextual factors, methods of deterring misconduct, and even stages of moral development” (American University, 2014). Some scholars say that students sense an uncontrollable urge to cheat and most cheaters irrationally choose academic misconduct. But no matter what the analytical or circumstantial data is on a student, they must overcome their conscience before they can cheat. This depends on two things; what the student uses as justification for the cheating and how strongly they feel regarding academic misconduct. The most common cause for academic misconduct is bad and irregular study habits. Some students do not realize that they should broaden their study habits in order to coincide with the more advanced courses. In addition, if the student does not know how to study effectively there is a greater chance they will engage in academic misconduct. Anxiety may cause a student to cheat to try and get a better grade. There many different reasons why a student commits academic dishonesty, however educating students on different ways to study in addition to what exactly academic dishonesty is can be very beneficial to keep students away from choosing......

Forensic Misconduct

...Forensic Misconduct: Dr. Pamela A. Fish Kirstin L. Daniels Professor Ian Rodway George Mason University Forensic Misconduct: Pamela A Fish Forensic science is defined as the practice of utilizing scientific methodologies to clarify judicial inquiries. The field of forensic science contains a broad range of disciplines and has become a vital aspect of criminal investigations. Some forensic disciplines are laboratory-based; while others are based on an analyst’s interpretation of observable patterns (Kourtsounis, 2009). According to the Innocence project’s website; in greater than fifty percent of wrongful convictions, the use of invalidated or improper forensic techniques played a role in cases; which were later overturned by DNA testing. Unlike other forensic methods, serology has been subjected to rigorous scientific testing to achieve validation. Even still, these methods can be inaccurately conducted or counterfactually conveyed during the trial (Innocence Project, 2012). Since the evidence presented during a trial can be the difference between freedom, and incarceration in many cases and death in some cases, misconduct in the forensic field is not tolerated. Some types of forensic misconduct include exaggeration of statistics, false testimony and laboratory fraud. Evidence offered by forensic scientists is often called “expert testimony”. Nevertheless, what is an expert? Is it someone who has gone to school and earned an undergraduate,......

Prison Staff Misconduct

...PRISON STAFF MISCONDUCT Payton Geeting May 4, 2015 Through the correctional system there are many positive and negative aspects within criminal justice. The focus of this paper will be on how violence within the walls of prisons has gotten out of hand, especially in the hands of the officers behind the badge. There have been lots cases where police officers misuse their power and authority, some more extreme than others. The power given to police officers, correctional officers, and even people in authoritative positions, gives them the impression that they can do what they please because they are above the law. This happens way too often and can cause a lot of issues within the justice system. A psychology professor from Yale University, Stanley Milgram conducted a study that demonstrated the power that is given to a person and how they decide to use it (Gross, 22). The study that was conducted by Milgram involved participants placed randomly in two groups of “teachers” and “learners”. Participants were told the experiment was studying memory, but the study was actually proving that violent behavior is an ordinary occurrence in human behavior. Participants in the “teacher” group were given the power of sending an electric shock to the “learners” who were answering questions to do with memory (Gross, 22). This study was falsely given because there was actually no electric shock sent to the “learners”. The experimenters would play a recording of shouts......

Police Misconduct

...Police Misconduct Amanda Stasiewicz CJS/210 01/31/2015 Professor Harvey Smith Police brutality is a major issue in today’s society. I would define police brutality no different than what it really is which is when an officer uses physical force with an intent to harm(Grant & Terry, 2008). Police brutality is not only physical though there is also verbal brutality. If an officer yells at you, calls you names, or uses profanity towards you for no reason than it is a form of verbal brutality. If an officer lays hands on you and uses excessive force purposely when it is not needed than it is considered physical brutality. A lot of police officers believe they can get away with it and it simply boils down to them having a little power and taking advantage of it which leads to my next point. Police brutality is not the only problem we have. We also have police corruption and misconduct and all three of these things normally go hand in hand with each other. They have a relationship they share which is normally because when one is present another is also being performed. Police corruption is the misuse of authority by an officer(Grant & Terry, 2008). This is where an officer allows the little bit of power that they have get to their heads and take advantage of it. They believe they can do what they want and get away with it. When this happens normally police brutality is not far behind. There are a few different things that could be done to prevent all......

Police Misconduct

...Minorities and Police Misconduct I. Thesis Statement: Police misconduct can happen to anyone that runs into a official with a hidden agenda. However, police misconduct usually happens to minorities and in communities that are underserved. When the police target these minority groups they cause the minority groups to not trust officials, elevates the crime rate in underserved areas, and can destroy the minorities quality of life. II. Major Supporting Idea #1: Minorities lose trust with officials when there is malicious police conduct. ·they feel more attacked than protected. O “relationship between the police and minorities, especially African Americans, has been marked by a long history of violence and mistrust.” (Lersch,1999) ·minorities are targeted, and are cheated out of tax money for programs. The authors also used certain court cases to prove the fact. In this editorial, the authors decided to show how much money was being spent by comparing what the money could buy if it was not spent on police misconduct cases. This gives the reader a more physical example to how dire the situation is than using just numerical figures. (The Daily Record, 2011) ·minorities feel they are not going to have legal support. “This occurs despite the fact that race is often the focal point of misconduct in a way that disability status is not.” (Clark,2002) III. Major Supporting Idea #2: Crime rates in underprivileged areas increase because minorities do not believe......

Police Misconduct

...Police Misconduct Response CJS/210 February 03, 2012 Police Misconduct Response Police brutality is the use of excessive force by a police officer and can be physical attacks, verbal attacks, or psychological intimidation. Police brutality is often triggered by disrespect towards the police officer. Police corruption is a form of police misconduct that is used by police to obtain personal gain, financial benefits, or career advancement. Police misconduct are when police officers take inappropriate actions in their official duties, which can lead to an innocent person being punished for a crime they did not commit or miscarriage of justice, and often involves discrimination. The relationship between police brutality, police corruption, and police misconduct are that they are all abuses of authority and violations of federal and state laws, or violations of the constitutional rights of the individual. There are many safeguards in place to protect individuals from abuse by police officers, such as Miranda rights that prevent officers from illegally obtaining information from the suspect during an arrest, the fourth amendment that protects the individual from illegal search and seizure and use of unlawful force, justification protects public from police abuse by limiting the times an officer is able to use force, and the fourteenth amendment protects the individuals rights to due process. These are all ways to protect the rights of the individual. Other ways......

The difficulty lies in deciding how much needed force is too much before crossing that line. You can ask multiple people in a community and every answer will be different. In reality it’s a matter of being able to tell if it’s out of protection or if it’s abuse of power. Is it fair that law enforcement can use unnecessary force to protect and serve this country?

(http://cuapb.org) Instances like this, shows that some people in law enforcement have no compassion for others. We as people should know our rights when it comes to police misconduct and take a stand for what are right. If you ever happen to be in a situation such as an arrest and they hand cuff you, there are a few things you should do. Make sure you don’t resist arrest and say that you are not resisting arrest. You should have the badge number or the name of the officer. If you can’t write it down call it out to where someone can write it down for you.
