two words that are used interchangeably, but are different are ethics and
morals. Ethics are defined as the rules that come from an external source and
morals are a person’s own principals in response to what is right and wrong.
Morals are known as the beliefs of an individual as to what constitutes right
or wrong. Ethics are what guides that individual to decide on what constitutes
good or bad. Some differences of ethics and morals include that morals deal
with right or wrong and ethics deal with what is good or bad, morals are
guidelines created by society and ethics are responses to a certain situation,
and the morals are expressed as statements, but ethics are abstracts and not
five examples of what is legal, but not necessarily ethical consist of the
following: Cheating on a significant other is legal, but some may see it as
unethical; Lying is legal , when not in the presence of being under oath, but some
may see it as unethical; Breaking promises is legal, but some may see it as

my opinion, police officers are there to protect people. They go out every day

In lieu of some of the recent situations I just feel like those police officers
handled those situations wrong, but not all police officers should be put under
the same light as those who did something wrong.
and etiquette are connected through the simple fact that they are applied to
how a person acts or their behavior at a given time. Etiquette gives us
guidelines for how we should act. Ethics are what guides a person to decide
what is good or bad. These two together help us to interact with each other and
be able to have better relationships with people.
