You showed your position well; you showed a general understanding of virtue ethics and how it applies to the case; you did not show a good understanding of the case in terms of utilitarianism; you focused on the pleasure and happiness in the act; the issue actually is the consequence of the act: how does the society feel about the act? What does it produce? The act does not really produce the greatest happiness of the greatest number.  If at all, it would produce the happiness of the police department.

For this final portion of the assignment, apply Kant’s categorical imperative to the case, and explain how you would approach the case, explaining whether your position is utilitarian or Kantian. Justify your position.
