1.Identify and discuss two different goals that the criminal justice system has.One of the goals for the criminal justice system is to prevent crime from happening. The second goal is to limit the freedom of offenders. 2.What are two different types of deterrence? Describe each type.The first type is General deterrence and the second is Specific deterrence. General deterrence is the idea that if people see the punishments given to the offenders that they will be less likely to commit a crime themselves. Specific deterrence happens when a specific person is punished harshly for their crimes to hopefully prevent them from repeating the crime. 3.Why are victims considered the first “gatekeepers” of the criminal justice system?Victims are considered the first “gatekeepers” because victims make the initial decision about whether they think a crime has occurred or not and then make the decision about whether or not to report the criminal act if they believe that is what the act was.
