Question 2: Do you agree with the following perspective? Why or why not?
Trustworthy which would encompass honesty and meeting one’s obligations. With honesty, you would need to be truthful and have honesty in any situation and loyalty. Respect would be the next one that I would choose with this one being close to the Golden rule in Christianity. and Caring would be my last choice because when you chose this as a career I feel like every day would be a challenge that you face but no matter what you should always remain trustworthy in any situation that way the victim will always feel like they can rely on you to tell them the situation that they could be in. Honesty I feel would always be needed no matter the situation I just read an article that was recently in the news that two former Law Enforcement officers got busted for illegal activity the force never suspected them and they ended up setting up their own trap my point of saying this is that I don’t think honesty or even them being trustworthy wasn’t on their minds. Caring would be the last one that I feel is important in this day in age it is important to have a nonjudgmental view on any situation and care for all victims of a crime.
The “principle of the Golden Mean” is that virtue would be always the median between two extremes of character. The second way would be virtues that a good person possesses include industriousness, temperance, thriftiness, humility, honesty. I feel like with these two choices would help in identify a criminal or even help in finding individual responsible for the crimes.
