Summary and Analysis





Summary and Analysis

In the video Fixing the System, it becomes evident of the presence of inequality, injustice and biased in access to appropriate legal assistance and justice for a large number of incarcerated individuals in the United States. In addition, the video makes an important note of the incarceration of a large number of non-violent offenders, leading to overcrowding of prisons and large expenses by the department of justice seeking to sustain this trend. In addition, it is important to that the system is inherently discriminatory given the excessive number of minorities who are incarceration in the United States. The primary issue noted in the video is the high incidence of over-incarceration in the United States due to discrimination, which leads to altercations between the justice system and the population as evidence by recent clashes between law enforcement and civilians in Fergusson, Missouri.

The video also explores the incidence of discrimination propagated by the justice system through law enforcement agencies, especially against minority communities. The discrimination and stereotyped behavior as exercised by the law enforcement agencies in the video and more so the entire justice system, is based on prejudices such as race and social status. Laws instituted by the justice system such as mandatory minimums have contributed to unnecessary incarceration of individuals who should only be serving relatively short sentences for non-violent crimes that are prevalent across all social classes and races in the United States.

The overarching message from the video is the need to proffer harsh judgments and sentences to presumed offenders irrespective of the magnitude of a crime based on the premise of mandatory minimum sentences. Fixing the justice system in the United States would amount to reevaluation and institution of new policies, which would take into consideration new challenges such as racial discrimination and social stereotypes.
