From the book:
Directions for inquiries 11â€“23: In each case, identify the conflicting obligations and decide whether the action taken is morally right. Be sure to consider the requirement of proportion. 11. In studying the subculture of a particular group, a sociologist must be accepted by the people and gain their trust. One such researcher is studying the people in an urban slum. She learns through their confidence that certain members of the community are involved in a car-theft ring. She does not report them to the police.
