Native Americans/Criminal Justice

Marks, Ryan McCoy; Smith, Raymond Arthur

According to studies and statistics, crime rates among the Native American population are much higher than the national average. On top of this, it has been found that Native Americans experience crime more so than the general population. Native Americans are incarcerated at a 38% higher rate than the national average, with suicide rates and abuse of these Native Americans being more common in prison than so for other racial groups. The higher association with crime (perpetrating and victimization) is something very interesting to note and investigate.
