Week 6  Chapters 8 and 9 Chapter 8 Define the following terms: 1. Gratuities- items of value received by an individual because of his/her  role or position rather than because of a personal relationship with the giver.  2. Graft- any exploration of one’s role such as accepting bribes, protection,  money, or kickbacks 3. Grass Eaters- those who are fairly passive in their deviant practices of  taking bribes, gratuities, and unsolicited protection 4. Meat Eaters- deviant officers who engage in shakedowns, “shop” at  burglary scenes, and engage in more deviant practices that “grass eaters” 5. Rotten-apple Argument- the proposition that the officer alone is deviant  and that it was simply a mistake to hire him/her 6.   Excessive Force-use of force that exceeds what is necessary to  accomplish a lawful purpose, or when the purpose is not lawful apprehension  or self defense but rather personal retaliation or coercion 7.  List and describe various forms of law enforcement deviance. - A few types of law enforcement deviance is graft, sexual misconduct,  excessive force, the use of drug and alcohol, and receiving gratuities. There is a  difference between graft and gratuities. Graft is when a law officer accepts  bribes where gratuities is where the law officer receives “gifts” just for being a  law officer. Some police officers uses his/her position to extort sex from the  citizen. The use of drug and alcohol can expose the officer to a criminal  element.  8.  What are Barker and Carter’s types of abuse?

-Barker and Carter both describe alcohol as types of abuse. 9.  According to your textbook, to whom do the terms grass eaters and meat  eaters originally refer? -The terms grass eater and meat eaters were originally terms used for  the New York City police officers who took advantage of their position to  engage in corrupt practices by the Knapp Commission. 10.  What are the arguments for and against the acceptance of gratuities? - Arguments for law officers accepting gratuities are that they build  community relations, the give businesses police protection, every occupation  has perks, and that gratuities compensate police for the poor pay they receive.  Some arguments against police officers accepting gratuities are, police are  professionals and professionals do not take gratuities, people could expect to  receive different treatment, can cause the police to abuse their authority, can  become costly to those giving the gratuities, and can give the image that the  police department is corrupt.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
