An anarchist theory of criminal justice - Coy McKinney

This paper is a critique of how the state, the legal system, and the criminal justice system function in American society. The paper argues that the racial disparities in society are not by chance, but design, as they represent the original intent of the rich, white men that drafted the Constitution. Ultimately, the paper calls for an anarchist approach to society that would remove the discriminatory, oppressive frameworks we currently live under. Time is spent debunking preconceived notions of anarchism and explaining why it is a viable path.
