In the first narrative, Archie, an African American, gets injured in a scene where a police alleges that he had murdered his counterpart in a shootout. Archie later dies out of an unclear cause, but reports by advisory committee show that he had been brutalized, an act that the police force disowns. In the second narrative, Graham is freed out of death row after a more than a decade of incarceration. He had been charged with murder case. All charges against him are dismissed by the state on account that they lacked credible evidence to link him to the alleged crimes. He gets transportation compensation meant to see him out of Angola. In a different trial, Albert Ronnel, who was mentally challenged and illiterate, had been charged with the same crimes of murder. There lacks substantial grounds to convince the court that he committed the felony.
Thus, professional misconduct is very evident in the two case studies. Officers of the police brutalize Archie without apparent evidence as to whether he was involved in the shootout or not. This amounts to a violation of professional ethics of the force. Besides, incompetence in both the criminal justice administration and the police force is well displayed. A sergeant at the station where was Archie orders to cleanse the drops of blood that flowed from Archie and denies that Archie was at the station. As a result of this incompetence in the judicial system individuals are wrongfully detained for years.
Similarities in the Two Case Studies
Incompetence of the members of police force and those of criminal justice administration lacks to great extent.
Willful violation of the code of ethics of the two organizations is at its best.
There exists dishonesty that is favorable by the two organizations and their members.
Evidence does not count a lot in any execution in the two organizations.
Differences in the Two Cases
First case study is characterized by physical torture by members of police force in contrast to mental torture received under jail custody.
The state intervenes to dismiss charges whose evidence does not meet standards, while advisory committee on human relation look into issues regarding physical torture of individuals.
