Herbert Packer created two representations of the separate views in the criminal justice system. In each representation he separated each opposing view into two categories, Liberal and conservative. The crime control model was more focused on old tradition, and the due process model leaned towards liberal values.
The crime control model underline that the criminal justice system should have more strict authority such as police power, to decrease and maintain the crime in society. It also favors that individual rights should be put side to preserve public safety. The model prefer that the accused person should be assumed guilty and that the cases should move quickly as they come.
The due process model is the ideal use that under the fifth and fourteenth amendment, the federal nor the state governments may deny: of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. It also pinpoints the fact that the importance of the accused is equally important to the rights of the victims being that the Bill of rights have laws simply for that purpose. It also stresses that governments authority should be limited to a certain extinct.
In my opinion, I believe that the Due process model is the best today. Being that our general public is beneath a lot of pressure from all the police brutality of minority groups, typically African Americans, we should limit power in government, such as changing certain laws and police power.
