Abstract/Summary The most important quality of any criminal justice system is fairness. If justice is administered unfairly, without respect for the rule of law, the system will lose legitimacy in the eyes of the community. Once perceived legitimacy is lost, the system will fail, as members of the public find other ways of redressing wrongs. [Chapter extract, GoogleBooks]
