Summary: Adler, Chapter 20 The Mark of a Criminal Record One of the greatest concerns about the criminal justice system is whether or not it serves to ameliorate or to perpetuate the social and economic stratification in our society. Furthermore, it is important to determine whether or not that stratification is also demarcated by other factors, such as race, gender, religion, or other criteria that may form a basis of discrimination. Currently, a disproportionately large segment of the Black population was incarcerated, or is currently incarcerated, compared to their White counterparts- the difference between Blacks and Whites was tenfold in 2000. Furthermore, the rate at which citizens are becoming incarcerated far outpaces the capacity of the prison system in detaining individuals, and will grow to be a significant drain on local economies, especially if any segment of the system is exacerbating the very conditions that induce crime and recidivism.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
