ABSTRACT
The article reports on the American criminal justice system. The American court is criticized for not enforcing well a legal order in which law-abiding citizens can be secure in their lives. The courts are concentrated on deciding whether there was a probable cause for the arrest rather than focusing on whether those arrested are guilty.
