Ourtext,, Williams, C. R., & Arriago, B. A. (2012). Ethics, crime, and criminal justice(2nd ed.). Upper Saddle, NJ: Pearson Education, Inc.
The required text book for this class defines psychologicalegoism as “a descriptive argument holding that human beings are, by naturealways motivated by self-interest; that all people, all of the time, act so asto promote (what they think are) their own interests” (Arrigo 2012). Thebook Ethics, Crime, and Criminal Justice also defines ethical egoism as “arelated prescriptive argument concerning self-interest ….. Which holds that weshould act from self-interest that our moral behavior should be our ownrationally derived interests” (Arrigo 2012). Egoism appears in all typesof environment especially in the criminal justice fields. First off it appliesto police officers in ways that deal with individual discretion and as a policeofficer. Officers are effected by bias and though we hope they never act uponthose biases it never the less will affect their work. Egoism is capable ofeffecting district attorney for prosecuting crimes. For example they offer updeals in which the morality of the deal is questioned however it ultimatelyfalls on the prosecutor. Like when you try a case differently to gain attentionfor your career. Lastly the defense attorney now it may seem that no one isever innocent when they get arrested for a crime but still there needs to be adefense attorney who holds the other side accountable on policy and trialrules. I would say egoism has great potential on effecting the outcome on somecases, ore than others. I believe it rests on the deference opinion of thedefendant.
