ABSTRACT
The article discusses a report which claims that the U.S. criminal justice system is experiencing a constitutional crisis as of 2014, focusing on cruel and unusual punishments under the Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (Eighth Amendment), and racial disparities in relation to punishment in America. Majority norms and the apparent countermajoritarian principles of the Eighth Amendment are mentioned, along with then-U.S. President Ronald Reagan's declaration of a war on drugs in 1982.
