The U.S. criminal justice system is in a constant balancing act between the rights of individuals and the need to protect citizens from harm. Most individual rights are found in the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution, as listed in Chapter 8.1 of your textbook.
Review these individual rights and provide your opinion on whether or not the effectiveness of the criminal justice system is hindered by individual liberties. Provide at least two specific details or examples to support your opinion. You may choose to draw these examples from your life and work experiences or from the Ashford University Library’s Westlaw database (contains documents and reviews of court cases).
