This week you explore the impact of the post-Civil War period on criminal behavior and the system charged with regulating such behavior. What was the impact of criminal justice during this post-Civil War period? What were the responses of the police, the courts, and the correctional system?
For this Discussion, you consider lessons learned from this period and how those relate to the criminal justice system.
Post by Day 3: Based on the Learning Resources this week, identify three events that affected the criminal justice system during the post-Civil War period. Explain how these events affected at least two components (i.e., police, courts, corrections) of the criminal justice system.
