Is The United States Legal System Broken?
The legal system in the United States was established to help ensure a fair trial for everyone. However it does appear that the legal system that was instilled to protect everyone has turned into a circus in many areas. For example the amount of frivolous lawsuits that tie up the courts have gotten out of control. You see cases on the docket for spilled coffee and for jilted lovers wanting compensation.
The problem with a broken legal system in the United
There is also plenty of controversy with high profile cases. It is amazing how evidence can be “misplaced” when the cost is high for a celebrity or other person with money. Many people lost faith in the United States legal system after the O.J. Simpson trial. It is often the poor people and the middle class who suffer the most from the broken legal system in the United States.
The quality of the attorney you are able to hire plays a huge role in the defense you are able to build. While everyone is allowed legal counsel, even those that can’t afford it, the cost of it generally means they have to settle for a public defender. Even if they have good skills their caseloads are simply too high to put too much time into any one case. That puts the client they represent at risk.
Everyone has their own opinion of the United States legal system. Most people believe that it is broken in some areas but it does serve the general public in most cases. However ask any one man or woman who has been wrongfully convicted and they will tell you justice has not been served for them or their families.
