Levin, Benjamin. “Rethinking the Bound of “criminal justice.” Colorado Law scholarly commons, 2018.
The criminal justice system essay argues that Levin is uncertain of the objectivity of the “criminal justice” nature and its reform effort and scholarship. Scholars have critique criminal justice system characteristics where it is not a system but a structure that articulates the concern of inequality of the prison population. Levy encourages people to understand the system regulations and the relevant actors as noted, “for the current criminal system to be fixed, we require a complete and detailed understanding of what precisely the system is; what social and political constitution, what laws and policies it encompasses?”(624).

A brilliant argument by Professor Benforado Adam discusses that although the criminal justice system operates as it was established, we would end up with unlawful convictions and unfair treatment.

Barkow, Rachel. “Prisoners of Politics: Breaking the cycle of mass incarceration” Harvard University Press, 2019.
This is the recent article that has been written by Barkow. She argues in the book that the United States has been through many years of bad policies that fail to address the underlying problems that an individual might face to make him or her commit a particular crime. The system of the United States is therefore not cognizant and fails to establish the underlying root cause of criminal offenses.
Robert A. Ferguson. “Inferno: An anatomy of American Punishment” (2017): 503-505.
In this book, Ferguson reveals what happens in the United States. The United States punishes severely than any other country on earth. The punishment is seen in the harsh sentences, prisons that are overcrowded, and ineffective rehabilitation policies and programs. Ferguson notes that the punisher is ignorant yet he behaves as if he knows what he inflicts on the punished. This is because what he inflicts on the punished is not what the punished usually get but in the eyes of the punisher, he feels some sense of entitlement by inflicting the punishment. (p. 34-35)

He sees the system as the one determined to bring about unprecedented prison populations. In addition, the system has a disenfranchised impact on American African communities.
