Restorative Justice
For a long time, there have been two criminal justice systems, but now there has been a new system, restorative justice, which has grown in popularity since the 1970’s. The three systems are the retribution model, the rehabilitation model, and the new one, restorative justice. The retribution system emphasizes on punishment through the criminal justice process, and the rehabilitation process focuses the need for society to assist criminals in changing their attitudes and behavior into better habits for their future. The restorative justice though, is a system that promotes equal concern for the victims and the offenders. It also focuses on the harm done to people and the relationship rather than the breaking of law.
