Surname 2 Cons of Discretion When it comes to the disadvantages of preference, most of the statutory laws together with nearly all the rules that are common are known to have the capability of not covering most of the potential situations that may be encountered by the police officers. It is a clear indication that the culprit may be left to walk away in most of the cases related to discretion (Peak 48). Since all the police officers are always not allowed by the law to apply excessive force, most of the individuals often take advantage of this issue and making them believe that all their encounters with the police officers regardless of whether they break the law or not should always be a smooth one. Another disadvantage of police discretion is that when abused, the result will still be the occurrence of a situation known as ‘enforcement of soft law' Due to this, the entire public might get motivated making them commit some serious offense.

    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.
