There is no Trust and Confidence in the Crime Justice
2Statement of the problem………………………………………………………………………5 1. 3Background of the problem. 0Literature Review. 1Demographic Analysis. 2Proposed Model………………. The criminal justice had thus been filled with the idea of seeking more money; therefore, some court please are terminated without evidence, and the police as well in some instances tend to convict people as criminal suspects to get money in the long run. The scope of the study is the American criminal justice and its relation to the expectation of the public. The study uses an observation method in the collection of data, and no specific gender must be or must not be included in the research. In this case the survey across all genders and all ages in America. The study had sampled the information of both men and women who have faced the acts of the criminal justice in America to come up with a hypothesis that there is no trust and confidence among various minority groups in the country.
1 Research Questions 1. Is there trust and confidence in criminal justice? 2. What are the characteristics of the current justice system? 3. Is the current criminal justice the true industrial complex? 4. What model could be prosed to increase the fairness of criminal justice to increase confidence and trust among the public? 1. The authoritarian form of leadership in any society leads to disagreements between the leader and led hence a reduction in confidence and trust in various activities. Legal organizations that practice authoritarian styles in their decision making will most likely reduce the public confidence in the decisions they make. The conflict of interest will be revealed in case hence witnesses and victims will not trust the procedures of the criminal justice. Gathering evidence, as well as insight on issues that works by improving the confidence of the general public and further reduce the fear of crime, is also important.
The conflict of interest law should also be upheld to facilitate the appearance of justice. The story of the Just Mercy could also be used to show the lack of confidence and trust among the public concerning criminal justice. The system is characterized by lousy court judgments and trials as shown in the Just Mercy. The analysis of the DNA in the story had revealed wrongful convictions as well as the dominance of some racial groups in the prisons on a daily basis. On a similar note, the war on drugs in the story had been tightened and in the long run, helping to benefit the officials in the justice system while setting some crime suspects free. Judges such as Robert E.
Policies were also made to ensure there is visibility in the interaction of the police with the citizens and further community prosecution was prescribed among the prosecutors to ensure that the public was satisfied with the rule of law (Tyler, T. R. Despite all these policies, the criminal justice is still very far away from being perfect. Racial discrimination in the system is still very high in addition to the violation of the rights of certain groups of people rights. There are other technical issues of racial profiling and difference on the aspect of sentencing basing on the popularity and the ethnic background of the suspect. This case and very many others had been the background of limited faith in police activities as well as the ability of the American government to provide fairness and unbiased treatments to minor groups.
The local prosecutors who also handle the cases regarding their law enforcement counterparts have often failed to reveal the appearance of justice. There are many other bias issues and the conflicts of interests when these prosecutors are dealing with cases against the police. The public, therefore, ends up losing trust and confidence in the local prosecutors the moment they see that they cannot handle situations according to their expectation. Many police in America have killed black people leading to the creation of movements such as black lives matter to address the challenge. The criminal justice had been filled with the idea of seeking more money; therefore, some court please are terminated without evidence and the police as well in some instances tend to convict people as criminal suspects in order to get money in the long run.
In several cases, the court officials declined to reveal the funds needed to be paid in certain instances and further stringent ass measures on the victims an aspect that had attracted bribery and cruelty in the criminal justice system across the board (Schlosser, Eric, 1998). This is the main reason behind the economic transformation brought about the prison boom in Texas, Tennessee, and New York. In other literature concerning the ‘Just Mercy’ story, lack of trust and confidence is further revealed due to the description of the increased bias in the American criminal justice system. The brutality, racial prejudice, and unfairness that had infected the criminal law from the stories of Schlosser are as a result of this emphasized in the Just Mercy case.
In this case, they had been quick in shooting them before understanding whether actually, they are crime suspects or not. Many people of color had also received lethal measures in America as opposed to whites because of the approach that the judges, prosecutors, and justice agencies have towards them. The confidence and trust bestowed to police had been weak in the areas where there are more crime rates due to their way of treating criminals. Minority groups in America, for example, are often described to be the perpetrators of crime, and hence their zones are offense oriented. Their relationship with criminal justice thus tends to be worse as opposed to the majority of the whites who have more trust and confidence in the criminal prosecution.
According to Fukuyama, the end of history, the quest for an individual and group recognition had been a driving force across the world. The minority groups in America and across the globe that the government has most likely neglected lack confidence and trust in the criminal justice in one way or another (Fukuyama, F. The importance of liberal democracy is, therefore, necessary her to develop some form of evolution that creates liberal governments which uniformly treat all people equally. The Plato thymos or the dignity of recognition is what the general public deserves from their governments as a measure to facilitate their ability to trust its ability to provide justice to all. The Canberra experiments in Australia in the 1990s also indicated a limited trust of the public to the police in the country.
Furthermore, the people who had just attained thirty years of age were likely to show more trust and confidence in the justice system as opposed to the aging group with more than sixty-five years. The analysis is, however, little but it gives an accurate picture of how there are differences in trust and confidence in the justice system in America. In other instances, the survey shows that the whites have a lot of conscience and belief in the actions carried out by the police in the country as do the black people. Minority groups had been at the forefront with limited trust and confidence regarding criminal justice. Demographic findings in America notes that, compared to the expectation of the minority groups, the criminal justice had fallen too short of their expectations.
Human beings are more likely to comply with a country law if they are sure that there is justice in every decision made against a given crime. The case of procedural, in this case, is critical because it implies the presence of fair procedures in the case of forming a proper judgment regarding a suspect. Legal authorities can employ the perceived legitimacy to ensure that they deal with activities that the public could easily trust and belief to be fair enough. Legitimacy is therefore very critical in the process of decision making among the judges, prosecutors, police and even the prison wardens to ensure that they fulfill the general expectation of the public and not just an in a particular group of people.
Procedural justice will be essential even when the prosecutors are dealing with the cases affecting the police officers. This aspect is emphasized with the intention that justice must satisfy the appearance of legitimacy. Moreover, in cases that involve the police and civilians, it is essential to avoid the differential treatment of the grand jury to make the final decisions. The prosecutors, in this case, transfer the decision making to a group of lay jurors who probably do not have power than him and hence will end up adhering to the conclusion of the prosecutor a biased prosecutor, in this case, would still transfer the bias ideas to the jurors and therefore the outcome will even not meet the expectation of the public.
To enhance trust and confidence in criminal justice, the aspect of differential treatment to police at the grand jury should be addressed adequately. Prosecutors who seem bias ought not to be included in such decisions because they will increase the gap between the public interests and the government. The boards of the criminal justice system are essential in this case because they are entitled to bring the people to a common understanding. 0 Research Methodology This is cross-sectional research, and therefore there is no complex data associated with it. The use of secondary resources had been utilized to get the best and reliable data regarding the public confidence and trust regarding criminal justice. The study had mostly focused on the American criminal justice system concerning the faith and trust that all the groups in the country have towards its operations.
The information in the survey consists of cases addressing males and females in America and those that include the roles carried out by judges, defense attorneys, and the prosecutors which affect the expectation of the public. The celebrities are those leaders who know that people understand their form of leadership through the media. The traditional style of command in various agencies had been authoritarian, vertical and further had more stern measures that keep the public away from the government. The increase in such institutions in every country had therefore been a primary source of the decline in the trust and confidence among the public. Rational choice theory of crime is often used by the member’s officials of the criminal justice system when deciding the outcome of a given crime committed (Coleman, J.
S. 1 Conclusion Conclusively, the Canberra experiments in Australia and Fukuyama idea of the end of history helps to understand the recognition and dignity that minority groups need to trust the criminal justice in any nation. A proposed model to restore the public trust and confidence in criminal justice could be a procedural justice that consists of legitimacy to ensure the appearance of justice. The existence of fairness is fundamental to any criminal justice system. The provision of visible policing that is supported by the commitment of the public and leaders will finally ensure that the witnesses, as well as victims, will have trust and confidence in the justice system in any country. Democratic leadership styles also are critical in enhancing trust and confidence in the justice system because it ensures a participatory process while making decisions.
The Just Mercy story is a practical move that was developed to improve the industrial complex. The pathetic justice system deserves a prolonged activist movement such as that led by Bryan Stevenson to address the rights of the interest groups and call for rightful convictions among the black and whites in the country. The plea for justice had often been denied by the industrial complex where the police, judges, and prosecutors have turned to business and in the long run, the innocent people are convicted while the first crime suspects are set free due to bribes. The struggle for social justice is revealed in the court cases and the life struggle of Bryan in America while trying to create equality in the court judgments.
It is consequently clear that the industrial complex where personal interests dominate the system had been further used to describe the Just Mercy story and it prompted the author to seek measures in creating fairness. The demographic variance between those who accepted that they had some trust in the criminal justice and those who had minimal trust was twenty-three percent. In addition to this, whites had less confidence in the system as compared to the African Americans. Furthermore, men were more likely to have confidence and trust in criminal justice as opposed to the women with a 20% confidence and trust. The brutality, racial prejudice, and unfairness that had infected the criminal law from the descriptions of Schlosser are as a result of this emphasized in the Just Mercy case.
The criminal justice, in this case, shows a lot of injustice when dealing with the court cases, but for once it managed to show a positive reputation in the determination of the Just Mercy criminal phenomena.
