The U.S. criminal justice system has let down the American people when it comes to justice, and those failures not only impact the victims but the society as a whole. The judicial system was implemented around the 17th century, and corruption quickly followed it not long after. Although the justice system maintains some order in our society, it is not very effective when it comes to preventing any form of corruption within the justice system itself. The criminal justice system has empowered corporations and authoritative people to break the law and get away with it.

- Throughout this research, it was discovered that Americans live in a country where those who are meant to enforce the law are the ones who break it the most and get away with it. - In this society, power and money basically overrule the laws that every other person must abide by. - The U.S. justice system holds back when big-name corporations are involved because of the possible impacts on our economy.
