During the first week of February it was discovered that one of the youth on probation and his family was no longer living at their given address. I, along with my supervisor, made several trips to the house to verify. The house was soon boarded up and the youth could not be located. There was no attempt by the youth to contact probation and he soon became out of contact, a clear violation of his probation contract. An arrest and detain (A&D) warrant was issued for the youth because of his probation violation. The youth was unable to be located by the Juvenile Crime Apprehension Team (JCAT) and no one in his family could be found by probation staff. The youth wasVIEW DOCUMENT

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, dilemma is defined as an argument presenting two or more equally conclusive alternatives against an opponent. An ethicaldilemma is considered to be a complex situation that involves a conflict between one’s moral imperatives. The conflict occurs when one has moral reasons to do either one of the two actions, but doing both is impossible. A person may seem to think of his or herself failing morally; but no matter what he or she does, there will be a negative result.

I have experienced many ethical dilemmas in my lifetime, so I know that there is no such thing as an ethicaldilemma that only affects one person. I also know that some ethical dilemmas are easier to resolve than others are. The easy ones are the ones in which we can make decisions on the spot. For example, if a cashier gives me too much change, I can immediately make a decision to either return the money or keep it.

For some, suicide is an unforgivable act that is never excusable, for other suicide is a saving grace or a redeeming action to restore honor.

Here God clearly states that He knew Jeremiah, the unborn, before he was conceived and had a purpose for him. A prominent question in this ethicaldilemma is "Is this life preconceived?"

Ethical wrongdoing is a problem in the real world wherein the rules can be bent to manipulate financial standing. In some organizations such as Lehman Brothers, we will take a look at how they were able to alter real information that was damaging to the company in such a way to make it look more secure. Before these things can happen the upper management must discontinue listening to their employees and even punish the ones that speak up about issues in the workplace. Slowly an organization can slip into a level of deception and manipulation that can only be alleviated by the eventual bankruptcy of the organization.

Ethical dilemmas occur on many different scales. These dilemmas, and the complexity attached to them, range from personal to corporate conflict. Depending on the nature and structure of a particular situation and the values in conflict, personal definitions of what an ethicaldilemma is may vary.

If you serve one value, you cannot server another, or you must deny of disserve one or more values in order to maintain one or more of the others”.
