Growing up in a community where the majority of the people are a certain race—one not of your own—can be very difficult. In some scenarios, being a different race from the community isn't really something pointed out, however in others, people sometimes make it known that your background is not the same as theirs. In the documentary Somewhere Between (Goldstein Knowlton, 2011), a film about four different girls and how their lives have been after being adopted in the U.S. because of China’s “One Child Policy”, being identified solely by your race in a neighborhood is pretty common. The documentary highlights many of the ways that race was the first, if not the only, thing some people saw when looking at an Asian girl in a White community.

During the movie, 5 Broken Cameras, the social issues, social interactions and ethical dilemmas were exemplified while crossing political borders, but it wasn’t accurately depicted on the basis of a strong bias. To begin, each camera was a symbol for each phase of this family’s life and struggle against political powers. During this film there was an extreme struggle for land and control between Palestinians and Israelis, the Israelis were taking land that belonged to the Palestinian farmers, or so it was proclaimed by Eman Burnat (Burnat & Davidi, 2011).

When students make a transfer in their lives from adolescence to adulthood, it tends to be a very stressful part of their lives. They start to learn about themselves, are given more freedom than they know what to do with, and are also given a lot more responsibilities with that freedom. These can all be stressful events.

In the article I read it discussed the reporting of misconduct by police and police staff in their everyday occupation. In this research it is highlighted that in this profession there is an extreme burden of righteousness that all policing staff must abide. Given a moral and ethical obligation to act in an appropriate manner police officers have been seen as truthful and upstanding human beings putting their point of view above the rest of societies. Contradictory to this societal view is the fact that in this research the “blue code” is referred to the ‘code of silence’ all police staff and officers partake in, in order to save their fellow officer or colleague. Ultimately this research article explored the “blue code” that actually exists worldwide amongst policing bodies. The article offers a smooth transition between the definitions of ethics/morals and then tells the reader about what is seen as moral/ethical to an officer. Also even if an act performed by an officer was morally incorrect according to their regulations or handbooks most of the time this action would be either overlooked or just disregarded completely.
