Transcript: Ethics Introduction Introduction Ethics is the center of any functional society and this is because it defines what amounts to a wrong and what amounts to what is a wrong and what is a right. Ethics is used to establish the punishment for wrong doers. Ethics in Criminal justice Ethical view of the system There have been many cases of ethical issues in the criminal justice system and this especially concerns the conduct of the different officers such as the police officers. The main ethical issue in the criminal justice system is corruption. Different authors have different findings on the issue of corruption in the criminal justice system Criminal Justice Criminal justice composition Criminal Justice is the system in which criminals are identified by their crimes, detained, judged and punished. The main components of the criminal justice system include law enforcement, the court system, and corrections facilities Ethics in Criminal justice Ethics in Criminal Justice Officers in the criminal justice system are used to enforce laws and order and as such are required to be a model to the society when it comes to morality. It is important for the officers to have high ethical standards so that the people can emulate that from them. Ethical dilemma Ethical dilemma The officers in the criminal justice system are often faced with ethical dilemmas. An ethical dilemma occurs where the officers have to make a hard choice of whether to behave in a moral way or compromise morality. Most of the time this dilemma is fueled when there is a financial incentive to do wrong Criminal justice ethics Criminal justice Corruption Corruption Corruption is a form of dishonesty or a criminal offense which is undertaken by a person or an organization which is entrusted with a position of authority, in order to acquire illicit benefits or abuse power for one's personal gain. The criminal justice officers have been seen to take bribes from the people for services which they have an obligation to offer them. Officers also use corruption to hide their own crimes Description Officers become motivated by money. The criminal justice system is loosing its efficiency in undertaking its roles because of the greed and the desire by the officers to become rich using mischief. Illustration Corruption illustration Corruption in criminal justice system Impacts of Corruption The corrupt criminal justice officers such as the police officers result into negative effects in the criminal justice system. 1. Corruption makes the people loose trust in the police and the courts. 2. Accelerates crimes in communities since criminals do not pay for their wrong doings. 3. Unfair punishment of innocent people who end up paying for the crimes of other people. 4. Nullifies the essence of the criminal justice system. People cannot place their trust and faith in the criminal justice system when they know that justice can be "bought". People who end up in courts and prisons are sometimes innocent because some officers somewhere received a bribe to cover up the real criminals. If the people who are given the responsibility to protect the people and maintain law and order are corrupt, it is a sad state of affairs as people are not guaranteed the justice which criminal justice system is obligated to offer Negative effects Moral Risks Moral Risks of Policing These are the motivations which encourage the police officers to be involved in misconduct. The moral risks include moral disengagement, moral compromise, moral licensing and Slippery slope (Blumberg et al., 2020) Prevention of Misconduct Prevention strategies 1. Minimizing the emotional and spiritual distress during hiring and training can help minimize the likelihoods of misconduct in the criminal justice system. 2. Supervision of the criminal justice system. 3. Wellness efforts to ensure mental and emotional stability of the officers 4. Strict regulations and laws against misconduct What is Organized Crime? Organized Crime in criminal justice Organized crime refers to the coordinated illegal activities among criminal justice officers for financial gains over a period of time (Sorell, 2018). The organized crimes accelerate the terrorism rates in the country. Most of the gangs are empowered by the criminal justice system due to corruption that makes it hard for the gangs to be pinned down Ethics in Public Service The public sector is another sector which is filled with ethical issues. The misconduct among the public service officers has created a need to look into the actions of most public service officers (Hossain et al., 2020). People in public service including criminal justice officers are expected to be diligent people and people of integrity. Most officers however do not display the public service values and engage themselves in criminal activities. Ethics in Public service References

Transcript: Violence Against Women Maple Bhatalia, a 19 year old student of Simon Fraser University was assaulted by her boyfriend and was murdered by an unknown killer on campus. Susan Miller was murdered by her husband who has been found mentally fit to stand trial for second degree murder. Ravinder Bhangu, was killed at a Surrey newspaper office; her husband has been charged with her murder. Main Issue: Honour killing and violence against women is rising. We hear only from the reporter and the police. We do not hear from the offender, close family members or friends. The information being ignored is the offender's point of view and the relationship history between the couples. Media Source: The media source is presenting the information accuratley, but the reporters do mention that the victims and offenders are South Asian many times. In the article about Susan Miller, it seemed as if the reporter was being a bit sarcastic because her husband was sent to an asylum instead of a correctional institute. Prevention: School-based programmes for adolescents to prevent violence within dating relationships Enact legislation and develop policies that protect women; address discrimination against women and promote gender equality; and help to move the culture away from violence Education of health Support a friend or family member who may be in an abusive relationship Lead by example. Work to create a group that rejects violence as a way to deal with problems. Speak up against messages that say violence or mistreating women. Become a mentor. Get involved in programs that teach young people to solve problems without violence is okay. LEPP 140 - Presentation Who is suspected and charged for the murder/ assault? The date of the murders? Where the murder took place? Why it tooks place?

Transcript: TAMEKA & ME PenPal Presentation BY: DEBRA BATEMAN BACKGROUND Introduction Tameka and I have exchanged 6 letters over the course of the semester and are still writing to each other. My group all decided to write to each penpal individually which I fully supported. LETTERS Letters Tameka and I spoke of many things over the course of the semester. Mainly about our individual everyday lives. She has 5 children and is as active in their lives as her situation allows her to be. She is a devoted woman and calls on God in her times of struggle. She told me many things about how her prison time has given her the ability to reflect and truly change herself. I spoke of school and family and work. Truly this experience was less of an educational provision and more of a friendship in progress. Quote J-Pay Even though I enjoy the use of real letters, J-Pay allowed Tameka and I to talk frequently and without the hassles of time constraints or stamps. Takeways Overall, this penpal project has been an enlightening and positive experience. It has given me a view into the private workings of Tameka's life and I think it has matched me with a new friend. I intend to continue my letters with Tameka and congratulate her when she is granted release.
