I would also add that the US is not necessarily the country to emulate in terms of justice. The US locks up more of its citizens than any other in the world. It has 5% of the world's population and 23% of the world's prisoners. The prison system is so large that it has acquired a life of its own and become an important source of income in many cities for people who work in the prisons and who want to see them kept filled so they can keep their jobs.
