Note: This series of Grounded Foundational articles, we address various topics in a way that will bring new readers up to speed. After reading this one, for example, almost every one of the site’s other articles that relate to Criminal Justice will be understandable.
At RightNerve.com, the topic of Criminal Justice is a big one because justice is an issue important for an orderly society
God likes justice. God is a just God. One of His Ten Commandments dealt directly with the criminal justice process when He forbade a person from bearing false witness against another. (The Ten Commandments does not include the commandment Do not lie in spite of the fact most Christians believe that one’s there. This is but a drop in the ocean of ignorance most Christians today have about God’s Word.)
On a national television show I used to guest host and write for, we’d make it clear that America’s justice system is the absolute worst in the world. Whenever a lawyer says we have the “best system in the world,” a statement by a lawyer is enough evidence that it’s the worse. But the evidence is plain if one stops believe the cradle-to-grave lie that we have the best system.
- If we didn’t have one of the highest per capita incarceration rates in the world, we might not have the worst system.
- If we didn’t have one of the highest violent crime rates in the world, we might not have the worst system.
In other words, if you only look at results we have one of the worst criminal justice system in the world, if not the worst. Here, we prefer to look at results, not statements made by those who profit from a broken system.
If we had good government, we’d have virtually no crime. Our crime epidemic is rampant. Crime is job security for bureaucrats. When a bad government profits off crime, which ours does, we will always have more of it. We now know that 911 is a cleanup service. You call them after the fact and they clean up the mess. The law is ineffective on all fronts to stop crime.
Poverty does not result in crime, that’s an insult to poor people. Crime produces poverty! That’s why if we reduced crime, we’d reduce poverty.
