Morally insane and Legally sane-this is a eliche in Police subculture. Don't worry about the morality of your act, but be cautious about the legality of your action-this is the advice given to younger generations by the elders in police. They consider morality as something not applicable to police work or as something which does not have anything to do with police job. The author thinks that any Law without a morality is a jungle law and the policemen cannot enforce jungle law n a democracy. Human conscience is a mental energy which generates restlessness, discomfort, compulsive behaviour in people when they commit moral wrongs and if that is so, it cannot be otherwise in people who wear police uniform. All people have negativity in abundance and immorality is a negativity. The negativity in police has resulted in custodial violence, torture, death, suicide, rape, coercion and what not in police subculture/ The author says that the police do not require any encouragement to become immoral, but they need enlightenment to become moral in police works. Police Ethics I s a new area and precisely therefore, the book would attract not only policemen but also moralists, judges, lawyers, researchers and public administrators.Printed Pages: 262.
