Is what is portrayed to society an accurate depiction of the realities of the justice system? My impressions and knowledge of the criminal justice system through the media, especially through entertainment television viewing. My opinion crime has always been the main topic and interest of the media. Rather it is Social Media like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube these have always been topic whether it be during the time of the serial murders, huge drug bust, or sex trafficking. “Mr. Big” undercover tactic as a case study of police independence and accountability in the context of “routine” policing, as opposed to the policing of highly public events and protests” (Puddister & Riddle, 2012).
In my opinion, how does the justice system actually respond to criminal activity? It starts with the crime and then law enforcement gets involved, with the Miranda rights. Next is the Court system, right to confront one’s accusers, the right against incriminating one’s self. Then there is corrections, this determines your sentence. Rather it is jail time or probation. Probation can be either supervised or unsupervised. This Note will argue that “Stand Your Ground” laws destroy the common-law element of necessity; disrupt the criminal justice system by taking away important discretionary power from law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges; and increase violence (Sweeney, 2016).
