Description:

This paper explores the concepts of honesty and justice and explains that honesty is a virtue that is used to describe a professional that does not lie, while justice is a term used to describe the moral straightness of a justice system based on ethics, fairness and rationale. The paper then compares the concepts of criminal control and due process and explains that criminal control is aimed at controlling crime in the society and guarding the civilians against criminals, while the due process involves using the law in screening criminals to ensure the right individual is convicted while the rest remain free. The paper provides examples of both a case of criminal control and of due process.

Outline:
Honesty versus Justice
Due Process versus Criminal Control

From the Paper:

"For justice to prevail, all the professionals in criminal justice should be honest. Honest is a virtue that is used to describe a professional that doesn't lie on the other hand justice is a term used to describe the moral straightness of justice system based on ethics, fairness and rationale. Justice should punish the wrong doers and award the victims in order to influence the society and make everyone follow the law and other set regulations. Honesty should extend to include individual testifying in criminal cases, if a person gives false evidence; the innocent party in the case is treated as if he were guilty. A person giving evidence in a criminal case should be charged if the evidence presented is proved beyond doubt to be false; an example of such a case is when Craig Harvey a police trooper in New York was found guilty of presenting false evidence in 1993, he admitted having lifted John Spencer's finger prints from Troops C headquarters and presenting them in the evidence cards in a murder case, Crag pleaded guilty as of planting evidence in which Spencer was sentenced to 50 years in prison."
