Crime Prevention Criminal Justice

profileEclpse1

Some mandatory sentencing laws, called three-strikes laws, were created in the 1990s as citizens and lawmakers became fed up withviolent crime. Intended to be used to lock up repeat violent offenders for life, the laws were not widely implemented in all states, and only California has used its threestrikes law widely.

 YOUR ASSIGNMENT IS TO:

 Search for "California three-strikes law" on the Internet and read about its benefits as well as costs.

 Focus on what type of offenders have been most affected, the law's impact on crime, its financial impact, and whether it has been applied in a racially biased way.

 Then, argue one way or the other, whether the law is good or bad. Explain.
