Discretion—The power of a criminal justice official to make decisions on issues
within legal guidelines.

In many cases discretion can be good- police does not take someones kid to jail for stealing a bike and allow the parents to work it out. In many cases, discretion can be bad- a bad police officer utilizing his/her authority to target minorities within a community.

Do you think police should have discretion- Why or Why Not??
