The required textbook chapters and the An Extended Conception of Rationality and Moral Actions article discuss moralism and rational choice (Roh, 2003). For this discussion, explain the significance of criminal justice professionals accepting the importance of moral actions in their professions. Can the greater good be served by people merely doing what they are told is morally right, or must professionals actually accept and believe in the need for moral conduct in order to best serve the effective administration of criminal justice agencies? Provide at least of one example to support your conclusion.
Guided Response: Are laws and regulations intentionally ethical or written to produce moral actions? If not, does pragmatism and public protection lend itself to non-ethical philosophies or actions? Should criminal justice professionals adhere to a personal code or moral conduct, or should there be a formal code of conduct required for criminal justice professionals?

- Write an essay, at least 500 words, responding to Lipsitz’s and Kelley’s essays and to what we’ve been learning in class pertaining to the criminalization of rap music. How was the criminalization of rap music tied to the criminalization of Black youth? What political and social forces wanted to censor rap music and why? How did rappers and their supporters fight back against criminalization and censorship? What should we do with rap music that some might find offensive? Definitely draw on what you learned from reading the essays by Lipsitz and Kelley, but the more opinionated your essay, the better.
