Identify if the actions were the result of nonfeasance, misfeasance, or malfeasance, and relate this corruption back to the decision-making process. What decisions resulted (either intentionally or unintentionally) in the corrupt actions depicted in the story? Provide evidence to support your assessment.

The definitions of nonfeasance, misfeasance, and malfeasance—-There are three forms of police corruption: nonfeasance, misfeasance, and malfeasance. Nonfeasance involves failure to perform a legal duty, misfeasance is failure to perform a legal duty in a proper manner, and malfeasance is commission of an ­illegal act. For example, an officer who sees a car swerving dangerously down the road can legitimately pull its driver over. If the driver hands the officer his license with a $50 bill clipped to it, and the officer takes it, does not write a ticket, and proceeds to search the driver by tearing off his clothes, the officer commits nonfeasance (in failing to write a ticket for a serious traffic violation), misfeasance (in conducting a search improperly), and malfeasance (in accepting a bribe).
