Article: "America's broken criminal justice system"

Blogger has published a long but interesting article on what he calls "America's broken criminal justice system." In it, he discusses certain aspects of our legal system that he argues "serve to destroy the notion of a Criminal Justice System that operates fairly towards each citizen and make that system into an instrument of oppression." The items he discusses include (using his words): unfairness of representation, under-funding of the court system, plea bargaining as an insult to justice, the political nature of judges, prosecution as a career stepping stone, the corruption of law enforcement and public ignorance of our criminal justice system. Go here to read the full article.
