The principle explains that police should use only the amount of physical force necessary to restore order and protect public if using warning or persuasion is not working on an individual. This is important because it is not ok for anyone to use physical force in not completely necessary. If using physical force is not required, then it should always be avoided. Although, if an officer must use physical force than it should be the least amount necessary to protect the individual and surrounding public. For modern police officers this an important principle, this is not always followed and not following this principle causes many unnecessary tragedies and conflicts.
Moral degradation is a necessary evil in order to survive through war; therefore, construction of a new morality is inescapable. Within the stories in The Things They Carried, soldiers are required to do so during and after the Vietnam War. War breeds monstrosities and wanton cruelty. When faced with two evils, picking the lesser immoral option is not necessarily something to be frowned upon. This is what separates a soldier’s morality and a civilian’s morality.
People may think he was a loyal officer, but just because some other officers made poor decisions, it does not mean they were unloyal. This is why the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko. Many assassinations are talked about such as the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Malcolm X and so on, but one assassination that is barely touched is the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko. Alexander was a secret officer who stopped crime. He also knew
With a demonstration it would for one, give the Japanese proof of the bomb and two, show them how destructive the bomb is. Furthermore, an attack on civilians is not regarded, despite the extent they are involved in the war effort. The military is a force that knows that they are putting their life on the line for their country, willingly making a commitment and understanding death is a possibility. However civilians are entirely different, as their involvement in war is scarce. They cannot be considered necessary to a war effort.
Time management in the military Eddie White DI Page Time management in the military Time management is very important as any organization or individual who want to achieve his/her goals must strictly observe time. Time management requires someone to prioritize some tasks in some way; one should label some tasks as more imp01iant than others. The key factor in effective time management is usually accuracy because when you have accurate model of reality you are in a position to determine which task is more important than other. You can only realize the real gains in time management at the top but not at the bottom. Inaccurate understanding of reality can make your missions, goals and your projects to be meaningless
War is not something that occurs in one’s life and goes away. It is something that leaves a permanent track on the people that undergo it, which can sometimes negatively alter the way someone acts. Louie Zamperini and Mutsuhiro Watanabe are examples of people who have been affected by the war, causing them to act differently them what they used to. In Unbroken, Laura Hillenbrand displays the true stories of soldiers, showing that war is an extreme event that can sometimes bring out the worst in people. Louie Zamperini is one example of how the war unfavorably affected how he acted.
I’ve realized that not being on time can cause a lot headaches and unnecessary punishments, not because it isn 't deserving but because it is easy to avoid. The standard for the Army for time hacks is ten minutes prior to the set time, this allows squad leaders and team leaders to get an accurate count of everybody and take count of anyone who isn’t there, it also gives the people who are prone to being late to be on “time” according to the actual set time. AR 600-8-6 is the regulation that cover accountability and strength reporting, which is important to the subject at hand because if a squad leader or team leader is missing personnel, it covers how it should be reported. Allthough there is no set regulation for certain things such as time hacks, they are command driven so whatever your command puts out a set time or if you were to miss the set time, it is up to your command on how to handle
As Pollitt says in The Nation, “… without a gun, it’s difficult to kill and injure a whole crowd of people, no matter how much you’d like to” (484.) Background checks are necessary to keep guns out of the hands of people who will do harm with them. Background checks should not be limited to stores. More should be included as well on the background checks being done. There is no reason they should not also be used in purchasing arsenal.
Not committing to the task could potentially suggest that they were incompetent or lack the capacity as a military personnel so facing ‘dangers’ was a much preferred option. Additionally, discipline in the military can be seen when an officer makes his salutes appropriately, their conduct, to the state of their uniform and even how they present themselves in public. While discipline in military is rewarded as it is a sign of respect and duty, misconduct on the other hand is punishable. When discipline is lacking in an army personnel, it not only affects their own performance but also the team as a whole. It is therefore important to instil discipline early and effectively.
It is possible for officers to err in judgment—and to thereby incur censure—without violating a criminal statute.” Thus, though the battalion command made fatal decisions, as well as Chosen Company; they had no way of knowing the size and scope of the attack. The officers made their decisions based on what they believed was the best course of action. Unfortunately, some decisions would prove detrimental in the Battle of Wanat as many brave men lost their
As routine officers arrive on scene to carry out the purpose of the police department by providing peace, safety, and to maintain order emotions, rights and authority can disrupt judgment. In the case of Oscar Grant one officers actions were quickly misunderstood because another unarmed person would be killed by a police officer. In my opinion the officer failed to carry out the purpose of the police department because officers are expected to not do unnecessary harm but protect and serve. With new policy educating the public and police officers on how to commutate and react to one another could help decrease these types of actions. Including new policy that could help prevent this action of police brutality against unarmed individuals by increasing police training on de-escalating situations verbally before becoming physically aggressive.
The responsibility was laid out to them clearly, but the decision to downplay this massacre would lead to events soldiers wished never happened. By omission and commission, they suppressed reports of the incident and submitted false or misleading accounts to higher headquarters. (My Lai Massacre) By suppressing the news of the massacre, Calley and his fellow officers just dug themselves a deep hole. Surely they should have expected the cause and effect from this small decision. Even if those claims made by Calley about the massacre were incorrect, since international law and the military code of conduct expressly forbade the killing of civilians, it was still the responsibility of the chain of command to ensure that Calley knew those policies.
It was basically the public against an officer. There was no direct evidence to support that Darren Wilson indeed used excessive force. With proper evidence, the public would succumb easier to result of any incident because there would be evidence to support the claims that were made. If there was proper evidence that Brown had indeed posed a threat to Wilson, there would not have been as much backlash. As a result of the outcome, communities People often put their best foot forward when they know they are being watched by their superiors.
