After reading “The Asshole” by John Van Maanen, discuss how this outlook by officers would have an effect on police-citizen encounters.  Your submission should be one page long to adequately discuss your response.  Do you think this type of outlook is prevalent?  Is there a benefit or hazard to the creation of a police subculture?  How would this type of outlook affect daily encounters with citizens?  Would this type of outlook influence police decisions to use force or make arrests?  Do you think the type of policing style, as defined by Brown, would influence how officers feel about citizens?
