Should The United States Justice System Reduce Gang-Related Violence?

Decent Essays
Since 1960, 200,000 murders have remained unsolved, allowing dangerous people to continue to walk the streets. There have been murders for a number of reasons from gang related violence to domestic disputes. The United States had 16,121 murders in 2015 alone. However, the scary part of all of this is how horribly the United States Justice System has failed at solving these crimes. Only 67.1% of all murders end in arrest which means that out of the 16,121 murders in the United States last year only 10,817 were solved which means that over 5 thousand of these murderers still walk the streets. This alone makes people very angry and want to seek revenge or become a vigilantly such as the case of the Judge in the novel And Then There Were None.
