Your course project is designed to draw on your understanding of criminal justice systems around the world and to use that knowledge to suggest reforms within the United States. Your course project will be submitted in two parts, with two individual deadlines. In this part, you will select an existing criminal justice institution or process in the United States that you feel is ineffective, wasteful, or outdated. Potential topics include but are not limited to: A specific correctional system or format Sentencing procedures Investigation or arrest procedures A specific judicial process Probation Parole Law enforcement use of force A specific matter of public policy Instructions Explain what you perceive as the problem(s) with that institution or practice. Be prepared to back up your assertions with facts and research. Begin by identifying what you perceive as a flaw in the U.S. Criminal Justice system. This can be based on your own pre-existing opinions, experiences, or your reading and coursework in this, or other CJ classes. Of course, there is no perfect criminal justice system, and there is no way to eradicate all waste or injustice, but try to select a flawed element that you believe can be updated with some modern improvements to better serve the population. Having selected an institution or practice, submit a one (1) page explanation of the flaws you perceive. Be specific. Back up your claims with research and facts, using a minimum of two sources. If, for example, you have decided that the appeals process in death penalty cases is flawed, introduce some data to support your position. Use APA format for in-text citations, as well as for your references.
