If it is to be completely fair, a legal system must be consistent. For justice to be _______(A)_______ (dished out), a decision handed down by one judge should not be very different from that pronounced by another in a case with largely similar facts. In reality, however, this is rarely the case. To ascertain whether there is such a thing as judicial consistency, 47 district court judges from the state of Virginia, US, were asked to participate in a survey. Each judge was given five different hypothetical cases and asked to pronounce on them. Far from displaying 
consistency, their decisions could not have been more widely divergent. If a group of sitting judges, _______(B)_______ (Arbitrating) on the same set of facts could come up with such widely disparate results, how can we hope for any measure of consistency when they rule on real cases? With this in mind, a number of countries have put in place _______(C)_______ (Tenacious) systems designed to take human subjectivity out of sentencing. These systems are designed to ensure that individuals convicted of the same crime always receive the same sentence. However, by removing judicial discretion, they sometimes fail to appropriately consider important _______(D)_______ (Mitigating)
circumstances that help establish whether or not the person convicted of the offense has any chance of being rehabilitated. It, therefore, becomes important to find a way to empirically establish what the likelihood is that a convicted criminal will commit a crime again. As computers got more advanced, the algorithms designed to assess recidivism risk were able to take into consideration a significantly larger number of factors. With advances in machine learning, they could spot patterns that humans could not hope to see. The fact of the matter is that algorithms build their models on historical data sets, precedents that are themselves the outcome of decades of choices made by humans who are far from objective. We created objective algorithms because we knew that humans were inherently irrational in the decisions that they made. However, the solution we created seems to be infected with the same biases that we were aiming to _______(E)_______ (eradicate).
