  2. There are certainly many impacts that go unnoticed in the criminal justice system. We can’t neglect the reason WHY someone gets themselves in trouble in the first place but to kick them while they are down and not recognize the bigger impact is almost criminal in itself. There are people that need to be incarcerated but most can be provided community supervision, support and resources where they can improve their lives and become better people. If we realize that the children of people who are incarcerated stand a good chance of following in the same footsteps, maybe we would look at alternatives that will help us in the future.
