In this scenario, you are a police detective, and, along with your partner, you handle the majority of homicide cases in your town. A woman in your city was seen walking alone at night and was later found brutally raped, beaten and left for dead. She is now in a coma. Earlier that evening, a gang of young men was seen in the area, assaulting and threatening passersby. The responding officers picked up two members of the gang, 14 years of age, near the location of the crime after they fled questioning by the police. Your partner has just finished interviewing both of the suspects in separate interrogation rooms. Both youths have records for robbery and assault. While entitled to having their parents present, no significant effort was made to find them. While it is department policy to videotape important interviews, your partner did not tape either interview. Your partner comes to your desk and tells you that they both have confessed to the attack. When you ask your partner about the missing parents and the lack of videotape, he says, “don’t worry about it. They are both guilty as sin. We can close the case.” You are fairly certain that your partner probably crossed the line on his interview, which is why he conducted the interview alone. However, you are convinced that they are both guilty. What are you going to do? Challenge your partner about what happened in the interview room. Complete the paperwork documenting the confessions. Report the incident to your supervisor. Report the incident to the district attorney. Report the incident to the newspaper. Explain your rationale for your decision using what you are learning in this class. In other words, I would expect a discussion of how utilitarian or deontological ethics apply to the scenario.Â Make sure to explain the ethical theory you are using and apply it to the specific facts in the scenario. You may want to make a comment about the organizational culture of the police force, as well. If you do, relate it to how the culture influences what you believe is the ethical choice. Two pages.
