Discretion And Discrimination

111 Words1 Page
Discretion and discrimination are major ethical issues faced today in society. When people have discretion, their prejudices and perceptions of group of people, in this case, ex-convicts and minorities, make irradical and immoral decisions. Police officer’s discretion against a group of people is going to influence how they perform their job so if police are prejudiced toward a certain group of people, that group is not going to be treated or protected equally. This type of discrimination is shown through them enforcing the law different or even withholding the protections and benefits of the law from people.This unequal protection from the law is an ethical dilemma that should not be prevalent.
