Question description

Discretion and Ethical Decisions week 2 discussion 2

Citizens truly do not want officers who fail to take circumstances into account to apply discretion.  If this were the case, everyone would always get a ticket no matter what the situation.  Is it fair, for instance, to ticket a man driving 10 mph over the speed limit because he is taking his wife, who is delivering a baby, to the hospital that is a mile away?  I think most officers wouldn't hesitate to forgo the ticket in this situation.  Discretion is difficult to explain, but a necessary aspect of policing.  Kleinig looks at this deeper in his text here:  http://bit.ly/1BiFFGC

What other situations would you most likely use discretion to not strictly enforce the law?  Good comments on the topic in your answer.
