In this article, the writer examines whether black people are mistreated by the criminal justice system, that is, whether they face discrimination from both the police and the courts. The writer maintains that recent evidence in this regard implies that this is the case. The writer argues that the criminal justice system fails to provide a suitable service to minority groups.
From the Paper:"Racism in the criminal justice system can be seen to pertaining to a set of complex stereotypes, identifications, institutionalized racist attitudes, social disadvantages and erroneous cross-racial classification. It is represented by the failure of the criminal justice system to provide appropriate service to people of minority groups. In Canada, over representation of black people - particularly Aboriginal people - has been a dominant issue for the criminal justice system over the last twenty years."
