Criminal Justice: Social Issues

Downloadable Video - 2016
Rate this:
This video focuses on the criminal justice system and its role in protecting society while attempting to rehabilitate those who are incarcerated. A close look is given to current events in the justice system — e.g., the odd phenomenon of national crime statistics reporting a decrease in crime while the number of persons in prison is increasing. In addition, the video explores topics related to:. • Why people commit crimes in the first place • How the “criminal justice system” can victimize those who commit crimes • How being incarcerated often leads to recidivism • How social service professionals can best use education, prevention and intervention • How to break the cycle that keeps offenders coming back for “three hots and a cot”.
