Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are asking for help in putting together an ethical study of a particular case - the 'Wadesville' scenario. The problem is, you have not attached the case in question for me to help as comprehensively as possible. Luckily, I have been asked this problem quite a number of times by a number of students who have taken up this very same course as you so I am quite familiar with this problem and the case in question. If I am not mistaken, the case studies the town of Wadesville and its residents including Chief Dupree and Judge Raheem. I have thus decided to utilize information from these to fill in the missing details from your posting so as to present you with a solution you can use to answer this problem. I suggest first using a simple outline to complete your task as follows:

1. About the Case - 100 words
2. About ACA & function - 100 words
3. Ethical violations observed (at least 3) - 300 words

This should yield around 500 words but should you need a far longer discussion, I suggest adding more ethical violations to the list. You can use the listed resources to further explore the topic. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. All the best with your studies.
