The assault on Rodney King by Los Angeles Police officers in 1991 raised many issues about the actions of officers and subsequent accountability. Rodney King was contacted by LAPD officers following a vehicle chase. King was removed from his car, handcuffed, and was subsequently beaten by four LAPD officers. Video of the traffic stop and ensuing events was captured by a witness. The officers in question were criminally charged and were acquitted of those state criminal charges. They were later found guilty of federal civil rights violations. Rodney King received a $3.8 million settlement.
For this assignment, you must evaluate the results of the Rodney King case from the perspective of this week’s readings.
Analyze the vision and mission of the Los Angeles Police Department and the role of that vision and mission in establishing guidelines for behavior that aid in the risk management function of the LAPD.
Evaluate the impact of tort law on the development and implementation of the vision and mission, and how the financial settlement awarded to Rodney King impacts current and future ethical leadership.
Provide at least two examples of how the vision and mission were upheld, or how they were violated by the officers in question.
Explain how the relevant employment laws and policies addressed the hiring, training, and retention of police officers.
Examine how employment law may have affected the ethical and leadership decision making at the time of the King case.
Determine if all applicable legal policies and constitutional mandates were in place and are being adhered to. In the case that all policies and mandates were satisfactorily addressed, describe how the situation could have occurred. If you identified issues with the policies and mandates, recommend strategies for implementation that would have addressed these problems.
Analyze and explain how risk management policies within the context of this case are intended to protect the organization – and the community – from negative behaviors and liabilities.
Analyze the relevant risk management concepts and applicable tort law and explain how the torts influence risk management policies.
Analyze the impact of financial settlements on the organization and on the community. Propose changes to the vision and mission statements and explain how those statements should be adhered to.
