Discuss the basis for the argument that the criminal justice system actually comprises a "non-system."

Post Merge: 11 years ago
Many observers argue that the three components of the justice system actually comprise a criminal justice non-system—that the three components of the U.S. justice system do not always function in harmony and that the system is neither efficient nor fair. Some experts assert that the criminal justice system thus has little to do with justice, that it is not a coordinated structure or a system. Many practitioners in the field and academicians concede that the entire justice system is in crisis, even rapidly approaching a major breakdown. They can cite problems everywhere—large numbers of police calls for service, overcrowded court dockets, and increasing prison populations. In short, they contend that the system is in a state of dysfunction, largely as a result of its fragmentation and lack of cohesion. In many ways this is true.  Today’s many justice administrators cannot be innovators or reformers, but rather simply “make do.”

Police, courts, and corrections agencies do not function harmoniously, are not a coordinated structure, and are neither efficient nor fair enough to create fear of punishment nor respect for its values.
