Plea bargaining ought to be abolished in the US Criminal Justice system
Plea bargains do not represent optimal outcomes because prosecutors and defence attorneys do not necessarily represent the will of their principals since they have an interest to maintain a good working relationship.
Prosecutors and defence attorneys both studied similar things. This makes them likely to have a more common worldview than society and defendant.
They work in the interest of the principle of law--not accused criminals.
