Discuss about criminal justice and drug enforcement agent.
Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is a special agent which plays a major role in investigating violation of the federal laws that involves illegal drug and drug abuse. The organization is involved in individual and organizations that manufacture or distribute drugs within the United States or those who are connected to drug users in the country and they attempt to send their products. DEA work is to interrupt the operation and to destroy the organization financial structures related to drug trafficking. The main work of DEA is to ensure the sources are destroyed before they reach their potential users. This leads to their users being involved on undercover jobs to ensure the sources are cut off (Williams, 2015).
In the US discrimination and racial persistence is an issue in the judiciary. Among 2.2 million prisoners which is the world highest, racial disparities has a higher hand since the black are the dominant. This is higher than war on drugs. According to statistic, ethnic group sell drugs at roughly same rate but it is to surprise that the black and Hispanics compose 62% of those in prison for drug offenses. This is how the minority group is affected (Neubauer & Henry, 2015).
In the newly recorded record, the argents of DEA are guilty of many criminal cases this range from distributing drugs to attending to cartels with prostitutes. This is due to personal interest and money they get from engaging in such acts. More than 200 agents were found guilty of the offence and some were not relieved of their job leading to e question whether the top officials of DEA are also involved in the act (Frailing, et al, 2015).
Finally, a criminal justice system operates in a given order. This order entails reporting of the crime, then investigation of the crime. After investigation there is arrest of the offender, booking, then initial appearance, preliminary hearing, arraignment, trials, sensing, appeal, corrections then release (Reiman & Paul, 2015).
