TOPIC CHOICE: Chapters 14 and 15 of The Lucifer Effect discuss the atrocities at Abu Ghraib. Zimbardo uses the phrases “bad apples” or “a rotten barrel” when asking readers to consider their own perspectives about the abuses at Abu Ghraib (much like you did in the “Be the Juror” Assignment). Now that you’ve read about Abu Ghraib in chapters 14 and 15, and have reflected on the “bad apples” or “a rotten barrel” question in relation to that situation, consider that the same question has been raised about the issue of police brutality. Is police brutality the result of a few “bad apples” or “a rotten barrel”? Argue your perspective using chapters 14 and 15 of The Lucifer Effect and at least two outside sources. As you are writing about the current situation, your sources may include news articles, broadcasts, other sources for current events.
