He knows that the soliciting is wrong and feels guilty. Constable Smith is the officer you have been assigned to work with at the town. Last night was your first night on duty. You saw Constable Smith not apprehend Misguided MP and did not report it to anyone. He reasoned to you that Misguided MP is very good to the police and makes the job a lot easier. He told you that other police officers do the same and you should too.
