You are a police officer in New Orleans. During the flood following Hurricane Katrina, you are ordered to patrol a section of the downtown area to prevent looting. The water is waist high in some places, and sections of blocks are, for the most part, inundated with floodwater. You come upon one shop where the plate glass window has been broken, and about a dozen people are coming out of the shop with clothing in their arms. The stores’ contents will be written off anyway by the owners and covered by insurance. Should that make a difference in your decision? What if the store was in an area of the city that wasn’t flooded and the contents were not ruined? What if the people said they were desperate and didn’t have any clothes because their belongings were under water? What if the items being taken were televisions and other electronics?
The question invariably posed at the end of each ethical dilemma is, “What would you do?”
Answer the question and then explain why, using chapter concepts (i.e., on what ethical system
your decision was based, what “rules” come into play, etc.), you answered the way you did for
each dilemma. Address the following in your responses:
a. Identify the dilemma (note: include relevant facts).
b. Describe who may be impacted by the dilemma or should be considered in the decisionmaking process.
c. Identify all the choices/options that are possible to address this dilemma (note: not all of
these choices have to be realistic or good – part of this exercise is thinking through all of the
possible ways to solve a problem. Not all of them will be right!).
d. Describe the consequences of each choice/option, including how these various choices affect
other people impacted by the decision.
e. Identify the decision or action that you would make; and
f. Justify your decision or action.
I expect dilemma responses to be written for academic readers, thoughtfully crafted, and wellwritten with no profanity or shorthand/slang language used. The material should be cited in APA
format if you utilize outside resources for your response.
