Ethical Dilemma
Elizabeth Headley
CJS / 211
November 2, 2015

One ethical dilemma we seem to be facing on the United States today is how our law enforcement is upholding our laws and whether or not they are abusing them. Another dilemma that mixes in with that is how our youth does not seem to have the same respect as they once did, whether in schools our out in the streets. I would like to discuss the incident involving a police officer from South Carolina who was recently fired for a disturbing behavior caught on video in a high school classroom.
It is hard to say how this all happened, we can only rely on a few cell phone videos and accounts of students who witnessed what occurred in the class room that day. From what we do know from the media, a female student was disruptive in class with her cell phone. An officer was called in to handle the situation. When the female student did not comply with the officer’s demands, the officer became physical with the female student by grabbing her, and flipping her in her desk, onto the floor. The dilemma is; was the officer wrong in the way he handled the situation? Should he have used physical force to address the situation and should the officer have been fired for the way he handled himself?
It did not take long for the video to become viral, and of course, most people were outraged. This outrage more than likely was fueled by all the recent police brutality incidents that seem to plague the news outlets these days. After a day or so, the divide began. More people thought the female student deserved it and that she was in the wrong, while others still felt it was all too much for the situation. Because of this situation, the officer in question was suspended immediately and then was later fired from his job. The divide stayed the same. Many felt he deserved it and many felt it was not necessary. This has opened…...

A great deal of research has been undertaken on facility location and design, inventory and distribution planning, capacity and production planning and detailed scheduling. Only a small proportion of this work directly addresses the issues faced in the pharmaceutical sector. On the other hand, this sector is very much ready for and in need of sophisticated supply chain optimisation techniques. At the supply chain design stage, a particular problem faced by this industry is the need to balance future capacity with anticipated demands in the face of the very significant uncertainty that arises out of clinical trials and competitor activity. Efficient capacity utilisation plans and robust infrastructure investment decisions will be important as regulatory pressures increase and margins are eroded. The ability to locate nodes of the supply chain in tax havens and optimise trading and transfer price structures results in interesting degrees of freedom in the supply chain design problem. Prior even to capacity planning comes the problem of pipeline and testing planning, where the selection of......

...Ethics Awareness Inventory Octavio Landeros PSYCH/545 - Survey of Professional Psychology August 12, 2013 Instructor: Mary Mc Greevy Abstract The purpose of the summary is to elucidate the importance of a personal ethical perspective and to scrutinize the affiliation between professional and personal ethics in psychology. The summary will analyze by taking into account the results of the Ethics Awareness Inventory (EAI). Ethics Awareness Inventory In today’s society, there is a fine and invisible line among individuals and professionals: ethics. The meaning has become so multifaceted that people’s views about ethics have become unstable and broad. Ethics relate to moral principles to guide individuals and to teach them how to conduct themselves in society by differentiating between rightness and wrongness. The standard of right and wrong defines the aspect of ethics. Ethical dilemmas will arise and will bring a tangle of questions to the professional. The professional will wrestle with questions that will be hard to admit to themselves and others (Pope & Vasquez, 2011). It is human nature to make rushed decisions and mistakes makes humans question their professional and personal ethics. Ethics will help the professional answer those tangled questions. An ethical awareness will let the professional weigh the choices that will affect the lives of colleagues, the public, and the clients. An ethical awareness will free the professional from the restraining......

Ethical Awareness Inventory Analysis

...Ethical Awareness Inventory Analysis Gen/480 Ethical Awareness  “You tend to base your ethical perspective on what it is good to be, rather than what it is good to do” (The Williams Institute for Ethics and Management, 2012). My ethical awareness inventory scored predominantly high in the character-based perspective. As this inventory states, “Good people demonstrate good actions” (The Williams Institute for Ethics and Management, 2012). I believe the basis for this ethical perspective comes from the fact that I was raised in and still practice Christianity. “The process of living out one’s values is more important than the outcome of a decision” (The Williams Institute for Ethics and Management, 2012). I don’t know that I would consider this to be true of myself. I had a negative number in the results perspective. As an entrepreneur I do value results. I have owned businesses before where I had to let employees go because they negatively affected the bottom-line. I knew that if I allowed the current arrangement to continue the entire business would close and everyone would be out of a job not just the employee who role was no longer a contribution to the bottom-line. That being said I would never make a decision that was dishonest, deceptive or intestinally destructive to anyone for self-preservation. The section of the EAI that identified frustrations are both accurate and ridiculous. The ridiculous is from the foundational pre-supposition that “not everyone has......

Ethical Awareness Inventory

...Ethics Awareness Inventory PSYCH/545 Ethics Awareness Inventory Individual, corporate, and educational success relies largely on a person’s ability to make valuable and ethical professional decisions. The differences in ethical and moral characteristics can have positive or disastrous effects on careers and personal lives. In this paper the importance of understanding personal ethical perspective and the relationship between personal and professional ethics in psychology will be discussed. According to Mulcahy (2011), the Ethics Awareness Inventory Core is a philosophical study of moral values based on assumptions of what is determined to be right and wrong. The acronym for Core means Character, Obligation, Results, and Equity. These words define the meaning as a set of principles of beliefs for the background of the concept that includes morals, values principals, and rules that include standards of conduct and obligations for individuals and organizations. The ethical awareness inventory helps in evaluate the ethical style of an individual. This program asks a series of questions and evaluates the answers. Based on the answers an individual learns what his or her ethical perspective is. Many people view ethics from different perspectives and because of these differences is natural for people to have ethical conflicts with others. For example, an individual who has a different view about religion and politics may see ethical issues differently from another......

I am able to move through each lens fluidly and adapt the right tools to each situation to get the best outcome.

I know how to combine the two in order to get the best outcome. The Core Values of Rationality and Sensibility allows me to see the uniqueness of each situation. I know that sometimes there are exceptions to the rules or guidelines. I use my reasoning and sensibility skills to determine the greatest good for everyone. The Ethical Lens Inventory Reflection went on to describe that I do not make assumptions on how or why a person may act the way they do or how things need to be done. It stated that I define an ethical person as one who does the right thing. I hold a high standard for myself, but do not judge others who fall short as long as their intentions were honorable. I am comfortable using my critical thinking skills to come up with a solution. In knowing the results of my Ethical Lens Inventory Reflection, I can draw from my strengths academically and professionally. Academically, it shows what type of learning is best suited for me.......

Ethical Lens Inventory

...The result of my “Ethical Lens Inventory” were that I use rational reasoning skills to determine both, the universal rules that each person should follow and the processes that will ensure fairness and justice for all in the community. What this means is that I like to gather all the information, research all available options, and think things through carefully before I make a decision. I also like to make sure my decisions are equally fair and beneficial to everyone, regardless of the time that it may take. These are the same skills that I use academically as well. I like to make sure that I complete all my assignments with well thought out, researched and prepared material. I will work tirelessly to achieve the best possible material, again, no matter how long it takes. The results of my “Ethical Lens Inventory” show that I am a critical thinker by nature. Again by me carefully analyzing, researching, and thoroughly thinking things through to come up with the best possible solution. I have always believed that it is only fair that I give a problem or situation my all, regardless whether it is for work, personal or academically. The results of my “Reasoning Abilities” in My Career Plan Building Activity were on the same lines as my “Ethical Lens Inventory”.

Ethical Awareness Inventory Paper

...Ethics Awareness Inventory Analysis Constance L. Hernandez GEN 480 June 8, 2014 Jenny Hayes Ethics Awareness Inventory Analysis The Ethics Awareness Inventory Analysis is an analysis of a person’s moral beliefs and standards that he or she holds in both his and her personal and professional lives. After taking the analysis I was not surprised at the results, I scored extremely high on both character and obligation. When reading through the ethical perspectives that were offered in the report, I found them to be accurate to the way that I think and believe. In this paper, I will address the results of the test, how my education has affected my ethical thinking, the use of my ethics in thinking and decision-making and any potential conflicts that may arise from persons with different ethical behaviors. I hold very high values and believe that integrity is a virtue that defines a person, how he or she conducts his or her lives; as well as how he or she treats and respects others. According to “Merriam Webster” (2014) ethics is “rules of behavior that is based on what is morally good and bad. Ethics is a study that deals with ideas about what is good and bad behavior; a branch of philosophy dealing with what is morally right or wrong, and a belief that something is extremely important.” I have always believed that it is important to respect yourself and others, to make sure that your obligations are taken seriously and placed ahead of anything else. I want people to......

Inventory Valuation Methods and Ethical Considerations

...Inventory Valuation Methods and Ethical Considerations Unit 4 Assignment 3 Dany St. Laurent Capella University Introduction Generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) are the measurements and disclosure rules used to develop the information in financial statements (Libby, Libby, Short. pg. 16). When reporting inventory, there are generally four inventory reporting methods used; Specific identification method, first-in, first-out method (FIFO), last-in, first out method (LIFO), and average cost method. Each method is in conformity with GAAP and the law. Also each method has their own implications during periods of inflation and deflation. They can also affect the net income results reported in the financial statement presentation. In this paper, I will assume the role of a manager and analyze the GAAP and ethical implications of three of the four reporting methods in a clothing store company. First-In, First-Out Method When FIFO is used, the goods that are purchased first are the first goods to be sold. The goods that are the newest are left in ending inventory. When a company deal with increasing inventory it provides lower cost of goods sold, and a higher income tax liability, but in the end a higher net income is acquired. For inventory with decreasing cost, this is used for both tax return and financial statements because it produces the lowest income tax payment. This is a good method if the companies good have a short shelf live. It allows the company to......

Inventory Valuation Methods and Ethical Considerations

...Inventory Valuation Methods and Ethical Considerations Gary Varnell Capella University MBA 6014 Financial Accounting Professor Laurent Bobda Introduction Net income results, reported in the financial statement presentation, can be affected by the inventory reporting methods used. First-In, First-Out (FIFO), Last-In, First-Out (LIFO,) and weighted average methods each have their own implications during periods of inflation and deflation. This paper is designed to analyze and discuss the Generally Accepted Accounting Practices (GAAP) and ethical implications of each reporting method in a hypothetical company. For this paper, these discussions will be from the viewpoint of a manager. In this paper, the manager will select an inventory reporting method while taking into consideration the tax liabilities, profit levels, as well as the ethical considerations that the manager will have in choosing a particular inventory reporting method. First-In, First-Out (FIFO) The first-in, first-out method, which is also called FIFO, “assumes that the earliest goods purchased (the first ones) are the first goods sold, and the last goods purchased are left in ending inventory” (Libby, Libby, & Short 2014). When it comes to inventory, this method is best used if the company have inventory with decreasing costs due to the fact that it produces the lowest tax payments for the company. This inventory reporting method, along with cost of goods sold, will be the same whether it is computed......

Ethical Lens Inventory

...My Responses to the Questions Asked 1. Describe your ethical perspectives as identified by the Ethical Lens inventory, including your blind spot, strengths, weaknesses, and values My blind spot in not caring for others as I should, I typical care for myself and leave them to defend themselves. I am prudence and very much afraid of failure, even when failure is not an option. Knowing I will fail but never get up was a good tip to know, I was afraid for a second because refuse to fail. 2. Define what personal ethics means to you and how you apply it within the workplace Personal ethics means you outside of work and what affects you. This goes beyond your job and pretty much comes from home or deal with family in particular. You can apply this to your workplace by taking the good part of the personal parts, that’s positive and use them to get your job done. 3. Select one of the following scenarios. Explain how your personal ethics might help you determine a course of action in this situation. You have been sick all week and did not submit your weekly assignment. It is now Sunday night at 10:30 p.m. and you have to write a 1,050-word paper for your final assignment.
