Criminologists study the operations of the criminal justice system, which is
made up oflaw enforcement agencies, prosecutors' offices, defense attorneys,
judges, juries, probation and corrections departments, and parole authorities.
They investigate how the system handles offenders-specifically, suspects, defendants,
convicts, probationers, inmates, and parolees. Victimologists explore how the system
handles victims: how the police respond to complainants; how prosecutors, defense
attorneys, and judges treat these witnesses for the state; and how corrections, proba-
tion, and parole officials react to victims' special requests.


Sociologists who analyze social institutions from
a functionalist perspective point out that the criminal
justice system is supposed to serve as the first line of
defense for innocent, law-abiding people against the
depredations of the "criminal element." In other
words, the system ought to work to help victims
recover from harm inflicted by offenders. But those
who adopt a conflict perspective see the legal system
in a different light. Agencies and officials act to some
extent on their own behalf and follow policies that
are in their own self-interest, as well as to the advan-
tage of more powerful interest groups that dominate
society (see Reiman, 2005). Therefore, it is not sur-
prising from the conflict perspective to discover that
certain issues place victims at odds with the agencies
and officials whose ostensible mission is to protect
and assist them.


VICTIMS VERSUS THE
CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM


The criminal justice system is one branch of gov-
ernment that comes under scathing attack from all
political quarters. Conservative crime control pro-
ponents, treatment-oriented liberals, civil libertar-
ians, civil rights activists, feminists, and victim
advocates-all find fault with its procedures and
principles. Over the past few decades, even some
officials who run its agencies and shape its daily
operations have joined the chorus of critics calling
for change. However, they sharply disagree over
how to reform the system.


The consensus among the experts who focus
on victim issues is that the criminal justice system
does not measure up to expectations. It fails to de-
liver what it promises. It does not meet the needs
and wants of victims as its clients or consumers of
its services. Serious problems persist, and the indict-
ments of the system voiced over the years still stand
today (see Box 6.1).


SUP20se a person is robbed and injured. What
could and should the system do to dispense justice
in this case?


Law enforcement agencies are at the intake end
of the legal system and are the criminal justice


professionals that victims initially encounter.
Police officers could rush to help the victim and
provide whatever physical and psychological first
aid might be needed. They could catch the culprit
and properly collect evidence that will stand up in
court. They could recover any stolen goods taken
by the robber and speedily return these items to the
rightful owner. The prosecutor could make sure the
defendant is indicted and then press for a swift trial.
After conviction, the victim's views about a fair
resolution of this case could be fully aired. The
judge could hand down a sentence that would
balance the victim's wishes with the community's
desires and the robber's needs. Correctional author-
ities could see to it that the probationer, prisoner, or
parolee doesn't harass or harm the person whose
complaint set the machinery of criminal justice
into motion. If the offender was ordered by the
judge to reimburse the victim for his losses and ex-
penses, then correctional authorities could insure
that these payments or services are delivered in a
timely fashion, as promised.


But this "best-case scenario" frequently does
not materialize. Instead of enjoying the cooperation
of officials and supportive services from agencies as
the system handles "their" cases, victims might find
themselves sorely disappointed or even locked into
conflicts with the police, prosecutors, judges, war-
dens, and parole boards.

Zabo04 :

I need the word document itself. Push the paperclip to attach the word document.

Customer:

I've sent chapter 7

Zabo04 :

I created the attached word document from the one you uploaded by doing the following:

Zabo04 :

1. Find and replace the soft returns (^l), these are also known as line breaks. Use the Replace dialog box, for the Find what enter "^l" (that's a lowercase L as in lower), for Replace with ensure the box is empty. Press Replace all.

Zabo04 :

2. There will be some places with double spaces. Using Replace for Find what clear the box and press the space bar twice, for Replace with clear the box and press the space bar once. You do not want to replace all single spaces, because all spaces will dissappear.

Zabo04 :

3. The scanned text had some hyphenation, which know appears on the same line, but with a space after the hyphen. Use the Replace dialog again, and for Find what clear the box and enter "- ", that's a hyphen followed by a space. Clear the Replace with box. Press Replace all.

Zabo04 :

If you are unsure what a recurring character is in the text (i.e. maybe the hyphen is an emdash, a different ascii code that will not be found if you hit the hyphen key on the keyboard), highlight that character copy and paste it into the Find what box. ^l is the soft return, a hard return, or carriage return, is ^p, it can be difficult to determine what is what between word documents, so you may need to reveal the formatting codes, which can be done by pressing Shift+F1

Zabo04 :

Why is word doing this now, well it's more advanced, so it believes that it is being smart by inserting the line breaks, rather than simply adjusting the margins. Where before you could adjust the margins to use less paper, word thinks it is better to maintain the scanned aspect of the text and allow you to draw or add your comments in the margin.

Customer:

Hi

Customer:

I am not able to find the control center for the soft returns or line breaks could you explain a detail map to achieve the changes desired.

Customer:

Thanks for the help so far.

Customer:

Ken

Zabo04 :

Use the replace dialog

Zabo04 :

^l for line breaks, that's a lowercase l

Zabo04 :

The idea is to have word find and replace all line breaks with nothing, so leave the "Replace with" box blank

Zabo04 :

You get to the replace dialog box by pressing the "Replace" button on the "Home" banner (or Ctrl+h)
