This week’s reading provides overview of the police in American society. After reviewing the reading for week 1, as well as the week 1 discussion articles in the lesson for this week, discuss/debate with your classmates from a system’s perspective the political subdivisions of police governmental powers per federalism, including the specific U. S. Constitution Amendments that established their powers, as well as the significant historical events, which helped orchestrate America’s move toward law enforcement. In doing so, discuss the role authority plays in society. For society to function correctly and what attitudes people should have towards authority figures. Also, elaborate on incidents that have occurred in society where people question authority figures like police officers and their commitment to protect and to serve all people equally.
