Data was collected for a study. One night two psychologists turned on someone else's computer and accessed her data, knowingly violating all kinds of regulations. They were hoping to discover something new or come up with some new ideas to help their careers. They were caught by the person who owned the computer and data so they confessed. They caught a break when forced to admit what they did and they avoided harsh consequences. But later the unethical tendencies of one were used once again in a different situation with intentions of furthering her career. Was the supervisor at fault for not prosecuting the two to begin with? Read the entire story at the site mentalhealthethics.
