    Miranda's This is the Police (PC)

    [September 28, 2017 10:26:14 PM]
    One thing Iíve noticed that This is the Police does really well is playing around the Principle of Legality and Law of the Jungle. Playing the game as police chief Boyd, itís very obvious that the laws are clear and understood, but the gameplay is centered around whether or not you choose wrongdoing or following the letter of the law. As we learned in class: ďlegality and morality are not the same thingĒ. Although there are two sides of the argument, I find myself playing more to the tune of the Law of the Jungle: ďdo whatever is necessary to survive and succeedĒ. In order to not be killed by the mafia, I continue to act as a corrupt official and do whatever they ask of me in order to survive. Whether itís neglecting crimes happening in the city, firing officers with the guise of ďold ageĒ, or choosing to take the entirety of money left behind by my dead employees, Iíve already gone down a rough road so Iím sticking to my choices of corruption in order to hopefully survive and retire a wealthy man.

    Continuing the game, it wasnít long before I got the consequences of the previous moral dilemma. The mafia drops off a letter with photos of Kendrick and his family boarding an airplane, subtly letting me know that they are in understanding that Iíve taken over the contract for Kendrick who is fleeing. I receive a phone call from Christopher Sand, the mafia boss of the city; he insists that we formally meet and that my corruption working for him formally begins now. From here on out, I need to decide how I will delegate duties out to the city: do I prioritize the safety of the general citizens? Or do I turn a blind eye to any crimes involving the mafia? Will I send out more officers to respond to incidences the mafia needs covered? Or do I delegate my officers in a Utilitarianism sense and choose the options that bring about the greatest good for the city? The game does a great job of giving the player different options to consider with many different lives at stake.

    Starting the game This is the Police, the game revolves around the struggles of balancing your morality and ethics as you play the role of police chief Jack Boyd. The game begins with an introduction to your roles as Jack Boyd: after an investigation goes wrong, you must work to keep your job and make money for your retirement. Your tasks include keeping the city safe by solving cases, leading your task forces, and making moral decisions involving the mafia.

    The first great moral dilemma I faced in the game was when an old colleague, Kendrick, comes asking me for a favor. Kendrick has gotten into trouble working with the mafia, and now needs assistance because he made a contract with them but isnít able to pay them back the money he owes. If he doesnít get someone to take over the contract for him, the mafiaís going to kill his family. At this point, Iím given the choice of assisting Kendrick or refusing him. I figured that since Iím already knee deep in with the mafia and my future as Jack looked bleak, I would save Kendrick and his family so I chose to assist him. There wasnít an immediate consequence for my actions, but Iím sure Iíll be hearing
