Topic: Police brutality in America
With your topic you are to gather at least 8 – 10 sources (stories, journal articles, research items). Analyze media coverage of your topic, identifying important ethical concerns. In evaluating the issue you should identify (1) the ethical issues presented by the situation, (2) identify the facts relevant to the issues and then (3) evaluate the media’s portrayal of the issue (for example, does the media’s portrayal provide information needed to assess this issue through policies which may apply, standards of conduct which may apply or rules of law which may apply? Does it include material which suggests bias, truth, fairness, economic considerations, competition, deception, emotional and rational approach, etc.
• Don’t forget to also analyze images shown in the photos and videos if that applies.
You will then analyze the ethical issue(s) to determine how the issue/action/situation/policy should be resolved under each of the three main ethical frameworks we agreed upon in class 3.
Your objective is to recognize ethical issues in actual media coverage; apply critical skills of reason and analysis to an actual ethical issue involving a current program or problem; and apply ethical theories to a case study.
Ethical Decision-Making Frameworks

Ethics of Care Framework for Decision-Making
Do we have all of the pertinent facts?
Does it hurt anyone?
Does one resolution feel more right than the others?
Is there a need for a particular resolution that outweighs other concerns?

Virtue Ethics
What kind of person should I be? Whom do I want to be?
In this context what is a “good” person?
What will promote the development of character within myself and my community? What kind of character do I want to model?
How will my decision be perceived?

Fairness/Justice Approach
Would one approach favor or discriminate one over the other? Impartial?
What is a fair approach?
Is there an equitable distribution of burden?
Is there a justification for treating this situation differently?

Utilitarianism
What would benefit (make happy) the majority of people?
Is the short-term result worth it?
Does it result in a “good” consequence that outweighs any “bad”?

Hello writer. this is a very simple assignment. please use the course textbook (

Hello writer. This is a very simple assignment. Please use the course textbook (Public Service Ethics: Individual and Institutional Responsibilities. James Bowman and Jonathan P West. ISBN: 9781138578180. Publisher: Routledge.) On page 170 there is a case study titled, “8.1 Applying Philosophical and Behavioral Ethics Approaches: To Follow or Not to Follow Government Hiring Policy” My group and I had a discussion last night regarding this case study and AGREE with Patricia Cobb’s decision. One of my groupmates referenced the “Haidt’s Model”, which is referred to as the “Social Intuitionist Approach”, The emotional tail wags the rational dog. I personally used the, “what feels right, and what is right” approach. Another groupmate mentioned that Cobb followed her moral compass not to hire those two individuals due to the type of job at hand. If you can please put all that together for me and add more profound reasons as to why we agree that Cobb was right with her decision. For reference please use the textbook. You do not need to put the case study on the one page memo I am requesting. I have attached an example of what the professor is asking for. If you have any questions, please reach out to me. Thanks.

Provide supporting reasons for your interpretation of each senator’s views.

DQ Instructions:
1. Watch this summary of a debate between Senator Bernie Sanders and Senator Ted Cruz: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRm6tQadqeE
2. Using the categories below, identify the conception of distributive justice that you think best matches each senator’s position.
3. Provide supporting reasons for your interpretation of each senator’s views.
(The clip is very short, so if you need more information watch the entire debate or parts of it here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bapp45Vx0UE (The opening and closing remarks may be a good place to start.))
4. Then answer this question: Does society have a responsibility to provide access to health care to those who lack it?
5. Provide support for your position by drawing from one of the theories of distributive justice introduced in Vaughn and explained further below.
-Categories-
Theoretical background:
Justice: People getting what is due them or fair.
Distributive Justice: the fair distribution of goods.
Retributive Justice: the fair meting out of punishment for wrongdoing. Retributive justice is usually based upon a notion of distributive justice.
Elements of Distributive Justice:
1. What is the good being distributed?
Access to health care
Prevention from health risks (environmental, etc.)
2. What is the qualification in virtue of which the good is due a person (the right holder)?
Merit-based v. Egalitarian
The question of what sorts of things are due a person is based upon a conception of justice that gives an account of the qualification of the right-holder, the responsible parties, the good involved.
3. Who is the responsible party? Who is primarily responsible to make sure the good is distributed in keeping with the principle?
A principle of distributive justice makes clear what sorts of goods ought to be distributed to what individuals in virtue of what characteristic, in what way and who is primarily responsible to do this.
Competing Conceptions of Justice:
1. Libertarian: Libertarians generally do not recognize socially enforced obligation from justice to distribute health care fairly, because this would impinge upon the inalienable right to one’s own property, skills, and freedom. Many libertarians, however, acknowledge that all people have a responsibility to act beneficently towards those who lack a basic minimum of health care. Yet, how a particular person properly fulfills this responsibility to act beneficently will vary greatly.
Justice determined by basic rights of the individual to property and reward for labor (merit-based).
2. Utilitarian: Just acts (e.g., providing universal access to health care) are justified ultimately in terms of how they fulfill the principle of utility, which states that one should act in such a way as to bring about the greatest good for the greatest number of people.
Justice determined by the principle of utility (whatever provides the greatest balance of good over bad.)
3. Egalitarian: The qualification for distribution of goods is relative to a qualifying characteristic that people share equally (this qualifying characteristic may be that one is simply a human person, a rational agent, or a cooperating member of the/a human community or something else).
Justice determined by rights of the individual and their equal qualification.
4. Communitarian: Each person is viewed primarily not as an isolated individual with rights but as a member of communities. The demands of justice in a given community depend on the shared or common good around which that community is based.
Justice determined by the specific common good of a community. The common good determines one’s role and responsibility to others.

Given this information, what should you do?

We are going to be learning about Ethics and Boundaries. There is a PowerPoint that I have attached. In the middle of each slide there is a megaphone. Click on the megaphone and you will hear an audio of me explaining each slide. Your assignment this week is to review the PowerPoint. Once you reviewed the PowerPoint, please submit response via canvas.
Scenario 1: You are a case manager at an agency that runs a mentoring program for at risk teens. Many of the teens you work with are heavily involved with social media and have friended you on facebook and follow you on instagram. One Saturday night you attend your friends bachelor/bachelorette party where you have several drinks and a very good time. You friend tags you in several posts of pictures of you dancing provocatively with alcoholic beverages in your hand. In addition the groom/ bride’s 20 year old sibling is seen in the pictures consuming alcohol. When you return to work on Monday you have several messages from parents of the teens on your voicemail concerned over the posts of you on Facebook. What should you do?

Scenario 2: You are a case manager with a state agency that has a clearly defined policy regarding the receipt of” gifts” from clients. You have a very difficult case that you have worked on and helped the family achieve a very successful outcome. The family is so happy with the outcome they decide to surprise you with a new IPAD. When you attempt to decline they tell you that it’s really important for them that you accept this gift that that they really want to express their thanks. They state that they will not tell anyone about the gift. What should you do?

Scenario 3: You have working with a young single Mom for quite some time. You see that she has no support and is truly trying to get by. She shares with you that she has applied for multiple services to help with rent, food and heating. Each service told her that her income was just over the limit. She shares with you that she has been leaving her 6 year old child home alone after school for about an hour after school so she can earn money to cover the rent. She shares with you that she just doesn’t have a choice. Given this information, what should you do?

Scenario 4: You are a case manager working for a local agency that provides support for recovering addicts. One client in particular you have bonded with. The clients share with you his troubled past and the abuse he endured during his childhood. Your agency has a strict policy that personal cell phone numbers are not allowed to be shared. Your client shares with you that his only relative he has a good relationship with is in intensive care at the local hospital. He shares that he is scared. He asks if he can have your cell phone number so he can call if anything happens to his relative over the weekend. What do you do?

Please post your responses via canvas. Please share which of these scenarios was the most difficult for you and why?
