Assignment: Cooper's Ethical Decision-Making Model Often, public administrators’ morals and identity as well as their capacity for decision making and innovation are entangled in their standard of ethics. These entanglements may cause challenges in determining ethical behavior. However, such entanglements are necessary. Public service is society’s instrument for managing and resolving complex, interdependent issues affecting all individuals and organizations. Public expectations and formal standards demand that public administrators undertake sophisticated ethical reasoning and apply rigorous ethical standards to decisions and behavior. As discussed in the text, Cooper’s ethical decision-making model assists the responsible public administrator in assessing and addressing ethical dilemmas. Public administrators need to consider all underlying factors of a dilemma and the potential solutions in order to ensure the most proper outcome.

Whistle-blowing and Ethics
Introduction
The prison system and the justice system, in general, is expected to rehabilitate and give
the prisoners a way upon which they can reintegrate and become productive members of the
society. Contrary to the popular opinion, the prisons are not meant to give punitive treatment to
the prisoners, because that would essentially be a way of saying that the criminal justice system
has failed. The situation in the Corcoran State Prison in California presents an emerging concept
in the civil service. There have been studies that indicate that ‘whistle-blowers in civil service
draw attention to corrupt activities enable investigators to learn about the ethical dilemmas faced
by organization members’ (Dryburgh, 2009). The guards at the Corcoran Prison turned out to be
whistle-blowers in the civil rights suit that followed the situation of what was taking place in the
prison came to light. It is a way of showing that there has been a paradigm shift in which the
cultural climate allows civil employees to be whistle-blowers, the insight, and motivation for

in the interests of everyone, it is better if it remains in the closet. It implies that the guards would
even gamble on the fights, and inmates who refused to stop fighting would be fatally shot.

According to the statistics, in the seven years that were under consideration, there had been
seven inmates who had been shot fatally, and fifty seriously wounded, the highest numbers from
any prison in the US. The reality could unearth further numbers because the whistle-blowers say
that gun fires have been normalized in prison, and there were official cover-ups to most of the
murders that took place. It was the case of Preston Tate, a black prisoner who was killed that led
to the whistleblowing incident, and this shows the ethical dilemma that the ...
