Need help? We are here

You are a rookie police officer who responds to a call for officer assistance. Arriving at the scene, you see a ring of white police officers surrounding an African American suspect who is down on his knees. You don’t know what happened before you arrived, but you see a sergeant use a Taser on the suspect, and you see two other more experienced officers hitting the suspect with their nightsticks about the head and shoulders. This goes on for several minutes as you stand behind the circle. No one says anything that would indicate this was inappropriate behavior and no one tells the officers to stop. Identify the ethical dilemma, identify the stakeholders who have an interest in how the dilemma is resolved along with their points of view, provide possible courses of action to resolve the dilemma, and choose the course of action that you believe is most appropriate
