 If the criminal justice system continues to fail to address the cultural and racial disparity that permeates every aspect of the system there will be no way to move forward (Clemmons, 2015). The distrust between the two communities will continue, and the officers and courts will not learn from the people they have sworn to protect (Wahl, 2017). Even though the cultures may be different, people color, immigrants, and other minorities must be treated first as humans. When appropriate cultural competencies are in place in any administrative system there is the ability to ensure that there is a standard for the way people of all backgrounds will be treated.
