An ethical observation I noticed a criminal justice professional professional might encounter in carrying out their daily duties is a lack of analytical skills, and I’m not speaking in reference to attitude-Trust Me!

That relates to ANY criminal justice system professional who has to deal with ANY kind of data or record keeping and or processing, which is everyone. This is also applicable where they have been delegated by responsibility of the position in which they are hired and paid, as they signed when they took the job.

Because of such a strong lack of self work ethic, some have taken the capacity of their job lightly or for granted. What I have experienced is the lack of commitment to self professionalism. I recall being told by a customer service clerks from the courthouse to the DMV they didn’t know how exactly a computer system that they sit in front of 5-6 times a week, for 8 hours or more worked. Or understood information therein. But I also came to realize the gap in PC literacy for alot of individuals whom hold these positions. And so, there surfaces their uncomfortability even attempting to query anything beyond an individuals name and presents potential embarrassment to not only the entity, but them as a professional.

I don’t know what level of training is given.  But I know I’ve had to chase down tickets and court reords and the like in horrendous effort in attempting tasks these individuals GET PAID to do. I’ve had incorrect tickets, fines, and charges in the past I’ve had to resolve, and still do, at my own cost, because of a failures at multiple levels of administration, who gets paid to do it. And have been left to pay the fines, in resources of monetary and time. In turn, it has created a maze of endless confusion to where I’ve had to stop and think what “do they do all day”, “can they read”, or “who and where is quality control”? Quality Control It’s everywhere else that incorporates a system or service rendered to the general public and is held accountable for such errors that have even made it as far up as the Federal Courts. What extents are reached to ensure the innocence and faultless acts of some criminal justice professionals and the narrow lenience of grace extended to the general public who have been wrong by just that: the system.

Sure there exists an abstraction layer between the issuance of a citation or arrest, to actually standing before a judge. Yet if I am a individual attached to a file or docket, it should be a simple task to query the processing of the case and allow the checks and balances to be corrected WITHOUT impedances to the person, who then is really no criminal, but a victim, of the same laws that were suppose to hold him or her down.
