The criminal justice system takes a very harsh stance against a number of crimes. In the United States, a big emphasis is placed on punishment instead of rehabilitation. This puts people who are facing criminal charges in a hard position. Some people need help to stop the behaviors, but instead of getting that help, they are forced into a situation where they are placed with other people who have committed crimes. This might not help the situation at all. In fact, it can sometimes exacerbate issues that are already present.
