Application: Differential Treatment

Many studies have indicated that
members of racial and ethnic minorities are less satisfied with law enforcement
and criminal justice services than members of majority populations. In
addition, researchers have identified a correlation between individuals’
socioeconomic status and their perceptions of police and criminal justice
(Collective & Jones, 2009). Individuals from poor backgrounds were not as
satisfied with criminal justice services as their more affluent counterparts.
These negative perceptions may indicate disparities in attitudes toward racial
and ethnic minority offenders and differential treatment of these individuals
within the criminal justice system.

For this Assignment, think about
differential treatment of racial and ethnic minority offenders in the criminal
justice system. Consider the impacts of this differential treatment on offenders
and on society.

The Assignment (2–3 pages):

  • Explain three ways the criminal justice system may provide
    differential treatment to racial and ethnic minority offenders.
  • Explain the potential impact of this differential treatment of
    racial and ethnic minority offenders on the offenders.
  • Explain the potential impact of this differential treatment of
    racial and ethnic minority offenders on society.
