Throughout our nation, the percent of repeating sex offenders is greatly increasing. By now we are numb to the folly of a system that keeps putting dangerous sexual offenders back on the streets. After being let go five times by the state of California, Warren Bland, a notorious sexual predator was finally convicted and put on death row for the mutilation and murder of a little girl (Breig168).

Why is The Criminal Justice System Getting it Wrong? The United States has five per cent of the world's population, 25 per cent of the world's incarcerated people, and 50 per cent of the world's lawyers, and the question still arouses what is wrong with the justice system? In the book Ordinary Injustice, by Amy Bach, she attempts to show awareness on the reader as to how the United States court system functions and its flaws. In this essay I compare an intriguing case of Byron Halsey that shows ordinary injustice similar to Bach’s book that portrays the Michael case. In this case Byron Halsey is sentenced to life in prison for two counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated manslaughter, two counts of aggravated sexual assault, two counts of child abuse, and possession of a weapon.
Malcolm X, one of the most powerful leaders of black America during the 1960s. He was a street hustler convicted of robbery that made him spent seven years in prison.

Back in 2011, Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, 68, was accused and convicted on 45 out of 48 counts related to sexually abusing young boys over the course of two decades; he was sentenced to life in prison (Wertheim 2012). Not only were Sandusky’s actions illegal (among other less appropriate adjectives that I might add) but also illegal were the actions, or lack thereof, of Gary Shultz, the Penn State senior vice president for finance and business, and Tim Curley, the Penn State athletic director. They knew details and has witnessed some of the allegations against Sandusky yet failed to report to the proper authorities; thus they were charged with perjury, as required by state law (Viera, 2012). Most people do not realize that failure to report child abuse is just as bad, and sometimes even worse than child abuse itself.
