This limitation that she had faced was that her mother was holding her back because of her limitations of the English language. For an example, Tan had to make countless phone calls for her mother because the business personal on the other end of the line could not take the broken English very seriously. This also applied in general public too. For example, “people in department stores, at banks, and at restaurants did not take her seriously, did not give her good service, pretended not to understand her, or even acted as if they did not hear her” (Tan

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you are here because one person in this courtroom decided to take law into her own hands. The defendant, Mrs. Dominique Stephens, murdered the man that she vowed to love. This sole act by the defendant is violation of all morals and her husband’s right to live. Afterwards, she even felt guilty about this violation of justice and called the cops on herself, and she later signed a written statement stating that she is guilty of the murder of Mr. Donovan Stephens. Then the defendant later recanted this statement and said that she only killed Mr. Stephens in self defense.
For centuries, the criminal justice system has continually evolved and adapted to society where its sole purpose has been to punish those that break the laws deemed to be uncivilized. By punishing criminals, it attempts to maintain peace and order in society so that chaos and anarchy does not run amok. The criminal justice system we have today is divided into three sections, each with different responsibilities to uphold. The police are in charge of investigating and capturing criminals, the courts are in charge with the decision of whether or not a crime has been committed and if the person should be charged, and the corrections system is responsible for making sure the punishment given by the court is carried out (Mallicoat 2017:4). By examining the two contrasting ideologies of the criminal justice system, crime control and due process, we can see that our criminal justice system is flawed in maintaining public order and protecting our rights.
Defendant’s physical well-being is often ignored as noted in the above case, but their mental well-being is ignored as well. Jail inmates are often traumatized due to the treatment they undergo while incarcerated. Kalief Browder is just one example of an inmate who while awating trial was place in solitary confinement. Browder endured over 700 hundred days in solitary ultimately causing his mental health to severely decline (Gonnerman, 2014). The physical and mental trauma that inmates experience before they even undergo trial or receive plea deals demonstrates how the process of entering the criminal justice system is punishment itself.
