As so often happens in the United States, certain regions differ from the rest of the country so widely that a separate treatment is necessary. Such is the case for the South and criminal justice, where the institution of slavery created a bizarre situation for any pretence at a justice system. In the post slavery years, the traditionally weak southern state continued, with a resulting lack of a consistent or firmly legitimated justice system. The consequence: lynchings, vigilantism, and a high proportion of criminal violence which went unpunished. The questions about the South draw even the most reluctant observer into a complex of historical and contemporary problems we have yet to untangle.
