The U.S. criminal justice system is horrible. It is a system of getting money for the lawyers and the state(especially when you have to have a public defender, what a joke, they work for the DA).The person arrested has no choice(unless he or his family is rich), except to take a deal, guilty or not. It’s biggest victim is not the offender, but the family(especially when it only involves drugs) It ruins lives in order to to pay for police officers, judges, for- profit jails, parole officers, probation officers, etc. The country’s (justice system) does nothing to help these people have a life, even when they get out. It is the most unjust system in America and no one cares unless they or a love one gets involved in it. I wonder how many lives our justice system destroys in the name of profit?
