    I need help with the following scenario. You will imagine you are employed at
    a criminal justice organization facing a communal problem. Your superior at the organization has asked you to review the problem situation and offer your
    recommendations. You will be given the chance to evaluate the situation and develop suggestions that will inform development of strategies to address the issue
    using appropriate ethical and transparent leadership and communication skills.
    Analyze the case study (The Flawed Emergency Response to the 1992 Los Angeles Riots) for the ethics that
    were used to address the problem. Evaluate how leadership addressed the problem and whether they used ethical decision-making.
    Please include the following critical elements:
    A. Determine the ethicality of leadership's decision making in their attempts to address the problem. Be sure to justify your response and support your response
    B. Evaluate the transparency of the organization in regard to public communications. Be sure to justify your response. For example, are systems in place to communicate with the public? Has the organization been readily available and willing to provide the community with information regarding the problem?
    C. Evaluate how leadership of the organization considered the ethical concerns of the community in addressing the problem. Be sure to justify your response. For example, how were the concerns of internal and external stakeholders considered?
    D. Determine how the ethical decisions of leadership may impact the performance of employees in addressing the problem. How might these decisions improve employees' ability to address the problem? How might they hinder their ability to address the problem?
    E. Determine how the ethical decisions of leadership may impact the culture of the organization. For example, what if employees do not agree with the decisions?
    F. Explain the overall implications of the ethical decision-making of leadership and how that affects the organization and community. Be sure to justify your response.
    Be sure to include cited references to sources used.

    First and foremost, the police department lacked ethics and was engaged in internal infighting during the lead up to the riots. The fact is that the LAPD and minority communities were engaged in an acrimonious relationship for quite some time before the blatant beating that was given to Rodney King. Young Black and Hispanic males were routinely complaining of being framed for crimes they did not commit, illegally arrested and beaten, and family members were alleging that their relatives were being deliberately shot and killed by LAPD officers. Therefore, a lack of ethics was already existence throughout the LAPD.

    This reality is why people were outraged when the police officers were acquitted. The lack of leadership may or may not have been unethical as the mayor as well as the police chief did not believe that the officers would be acquitted. Based upon this assumption, they did not take the proper precautions to implement a riot plan that would incorporate absolute worst case scenario, which was the acquittal of all cops involved in the savage beating, and massive riots across the city. This was a dereliction of duty ...
