“Morals   A relative value can become moral when it protects and respects the Life Value of self and others. The great founding values of America, such as truth, freedom, and charity, have one thing in common: When they are functioning correctly—morally—they are life-protecting or life-enhancing for all. But they are still relative. Our “moral” values must be constantly examined to make sure that they are performing their life-respecting mission. Even the Marine Corps core values of, “honor, courage, and commitment” require examination in this context. “Courage” can wrongly be expressed as reckless martyrdom, “commitment” can sometimes become irrational fanaticism, and “honor” can be twisted into self-righteousness, conceit, and disrespect for others. Our enemies believe in their own standard of “honor” (we have all heard the saying “honor among thieves”), their own standard of “courage,” and they are surely committed to their ends. What then sets us apart? Respect for the lives of self and all others sets us apart.” 0 likes
“Today’s law enforcement officer also faces many stresses and ethical challenges. But the issues that too often get addressed through policy and training are the legally-enforceable ones: Accepting inappropriate gifts, misuse of position, conflict of interest. Yet gaining the trust and cooperation of those we serve, dealing efficiently and dispassionately with those we pursue, using force effectively and humanely, are all reflections of the law enforcement officer’s personal ethics. Although the mission of the Marines is obviously very different from that of local, state, or federal law enforcement, their ethical construct is still appropriate for law enforcement. The Ethical Warrior, as defined by the Marines, is a “protector,” who protects and defends their life, the life of others, and all life, if possible. This concept is universally consistent with law enforcement’s obligation to “protect and serve.” 0 likes
