The paper "The Crime Control Model" is a great example of an essay on social science. The crime control model and the due process model both have their pros and cons in their implementation to establish a just and upright system to control crimes and at the same time to allow freedom to the citizens. The crime control model revolves around devising measures to control crimes. It is a thorough system that struggles to catch a convict and allows a suitable punishment to an offender. However, on the other hand, the system does not cater to meet the rights of an individual but it works thoroughly to control criminal activities with a suitable punishment to an offender. The due process system grants maximum rights and freedom to the citizens.
The due process system helps an offender to be tagged as innocent before the guilt is proven and provides him maximum liberty before the prosecution proves his guilt. I personally believe that the crime control model would be more effective and efficient in its implementation to control and monitor criminal activities as well as to give the offender the kind of punishment he deserves for his actions.
On the other hand, due process system is least efficient in its implementation as it allows the offender to gain maximum benefit from the system unless he is proven guilty. It gives an opportunity to the offenders to commit a crime once again without being caught or being punished for his previous actions and hence, it endangers the lives of many innocents around him. The crime control model ensures that the offender is getting what he deserves.
Implementation of such a system would be an eye-opener for many criminals on the streets to learn a lesson from just one example.
