I need support with this Law question so I can learn better.

DQ1- Ethical codes guide the behavior of attorneys, police officers, and judges. Attorneys, police officers, and judges are expected to operate under the letter of the law without expressing bias or personal views during work hours. On off hours, those rules are often not as clear, yet we, as the public, still demand higher ethical standards of off-duty criminal justice personnel. Should off-duty members of the legal arena be held to a higher standard? If they are found to be in violation of those standards off duty, should they be punished to a lesser extent? Where does duty end and personal lives begin?

DQ2- Activities of law enforcement personnel are under greater scrutiny than ever before due to the fact that the public is constantly monitoring law enforcement activities with recording devices. Further, many police officers are now compelled to wear video cameras as part of their uniform. Does the constant presence of monitoring have a cooling effect on law enforcement activities? In other words, will law enforcement personnel be less willing to take aggressive but appropriate measures to combat crime if they are subject to near constant monitoring and recording? Does this create ethical dilemmas for law enforcement? Explain.

DQ3- Pretend that you are the decision maker for an administrative agency considering whether or not to allow the release of water to disgruntled ranchers at the potential cost of increasing the danger to an endangered species of fish. What ethical frameworks might help you make your decision regarding whether to release the water? Apply the chosen framework to resolve the ethical dilemma.

DQ4- Pretend that you are charged with the interrogation of suspected terrorists for an agency of American government. That agency is currently housing the suspected terrorist within a military installation located on a small island in the Atlantic Ocean. The executive administration authorized you to engage in “advanced interrogation techniques” and to even engage in what the administration has termed, torture lite. What ethical obligations might you have to consider? What legal obligations might you be required to follow?
