Document Summary

Nature of crime, law, and criminal justice. Criminal justice refers to how justice is dispensed and the process by which justice is carried out. What is expected of the system is more expanded than ever (cyber threats, crypto currencies, terrorism, etc. ) We expect our police officers to act as social workers in interacting with the community. Victim/offender overlap: it if hard to find people who are just victims or just offenders. Guilty persons set free due to procedural error. Process + punishment is equal across persons. Based on the way that the laws (in florida) are written, there was no way. We are at our safest point in history in terms of crime rates according to recorded/reported statistics. 1900-(cid:1005)95(cid:1004): cri(cid:373)e is thought of as a(cid:374) (cid:862)ur(cid:271)a(cid:374) pro(cid:271)le(cid:373)(cid:863). Immigration (in reality more immigrants = less crime), organized crime. Street gangs of the early 1900s were polish, jewish, italian, etc. Crime does not stay stable in our country.
