Detroit's Criminal Justice System
All cultures of the world despite many differences face a number of common problems and share a number of common features. This is because all cultures have fundamental needs which must be met. In order for a society or group to survive they must develop some established ways of preserving social order via a social control system. The social control system must develop rules or laws. For us, our criminal justice system is one way we preserve social order.
Our criminal justice system is not perfect because as an institution it is ruled by imperfect humans. For the most part, it preserves social order and the countless men and women who are a part of the system do an amazing job. When prejudices and unfairness is brought into the system, it can cause devastating results.
