Question and answer
Police officers are faced with choices every day and no matter what they decide, they need to remember the oath they sworn in with. Police officers are to protect and serve the community. Some officers do abuse their power, especially when there is no emergency and they put their sirens on. I have an officer friend who was in patrol in my block and he asked me what was going on around there. I could not answer because I did not know what was going on, but I also had to think about my safety. All I could tell him was just watch.

Is it ethical for a prosecutor to file criminal charges when the prosecutor does not have sufficient evidence of guilt, but believes the individual is guilty? Explain.
Weegy: The simple fact is that no, a prosecutor need not have legally sufficient evidence to bring criminal charges. "Sufficient evidence" is something which must be determined by a trier of fact. [ However, to make sure that a prosecutor does have ample evidence to justify a defendant being bound over for trial on a criminal charge- - the court allows the defendant to have a Preliminary Hearing in certain circumstances. This hearing follows the arraignment and is an opportunity for the defendant to have a mini-trial. The prosecutor at the Preliminary Hearing must show to the judge that there is Probable Cause to believe that a defendant has acted in violation of the law as they are charged. This is a low burden- -quite unlike the requirement in a criminal trial that requires a defendant to be found guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt". Now, there is another way a defendant can be brought to trial and that is to be indicted by the Grand Jury. If a prosecutor goes before a grand jury to seek an indictment, the defendant does not have the right to a preliminary hearing, and if the grand jury returns an indictment, the defendant will proceed directly to trial. So, as regards XXXXX XXXXX of it all- -clearly it is not ethical for a prosecutor to file charges against an individual if there are insufficient facts to convince the prosecutor of the defendant's participation is a crime. However, the amount of evidence needed by the prosecutor to charge, is not as much evidence as will be needed to convict.
