Changing the Mind-Set for Criminal Justice

(p.193) Chapter Fifteen Changing the Mind-Set for Criminal Justice
Back from the Dead

Jiahong He

University of Hawai'i Press

In this chapter, the author argues that while the enactment of relevant laws, the establishment of relevant institutions, and the insistence on certain principles of criminal justice are necessary for reform, the most crucial aspect is change in the mentalities of judicial and law enforcement officers. Key components of a new mind-set include acknowledgment of multiple and balanced values, equal emphasis on substantive and procedural justice, intent to prove rather than simply find facts, and greater weight given to physical evidence.

Keywords:   criminal-justice mindset, evidence, substantive justice, procedural justice, reform
