About "Criminal Justice Reform"
The criminal justice system seems to come up often in debate leagues as a topic that needs addressing. The “system” is claimed to be tainted, needing deep and lasting reform. The criminal justice system, however, is vast and wide. It includes large institutions whose goal in society is to deliver punishments. But it also focuses on rehabilitation, prevention, and support of criminals. The system consists of police and law enforcement, the courts, and the sea of lawyers who prosecute and defend law breakers.
There are many types of reform that debaters should know. Many claim that sentencing is discriminatory toward race. Drug culture targets low income communities. Police brutality and misconduct has been a rising concern of recent years. Re-entry into society has a high failure rate. The juvenile justice system seems to be broken. These are the many issues parli debaters can take on.
This week’s topics of debate the criminal justice system, aging infrastructure, secret videos of private conversations, whether welfare really helps the poor, and more!
