The American criminal justice system is a mess This really is an indisputable fact For nearly a half century we ve been fighting a War on Drugs which has only succeeded in putting drugs on the streets We run prisons for profit filling them with young black males and people too poor to afford bail andor attorneys We run a barter system with plea bargains rather than a justice system with trials by jury Nothing about what we do is fairWith Charged Emily Bazelon highlights the job of prosecutors showing us exactly how much power and control they wield over the system and the people caught within it She lays out this narrative with a focus on two young people one whose life is destroyed by an uncaring unjust system and the other who benefits immensely from the compassion of a different kind of system We have the ability to wield both types of power so why are we so uick to destroyThis book is disturbing because it should be But Bazelon also shows us glimmers of hope In various pockets of our country justice is becoming a reality rather than a farce Through these stories Bazelon shows us that compassion and justice can in fact go hand in hand The reality of our system is nothing like an episode of Law Order Money education status race and religion all weigh heavily in how a person is treated prosecuted and punished There is no such thing as eual rights within our criminal justice system at least not yet Maybe if enough people read this book and enough people demand change someday we can truly claim a justice systemI received an advance copy of this book from the publisher
