Justice, what does True Justice mean? Is for the people you love? Or for your own selfish reasons? Or maybe something else?
Post your own opinion about it.

Since I haven't experienced it yet, I'll ask other people about it.

You may post anything about the justice you know.

there are 2 perceptions of justice


think of justice as a scale. the first perception would think goodness (JUSTICE) keeps the scale balanced. being bad(UNJUSTIFIED) makes the scale tip. the 2nd perception would use 'Jusitice' to justify the unjustified.


the 1st perceptors would have a motto like "2 wrongs don't make a right" and the 2nd perceptor would say "To serve justice by destruction", in which case annihilating the unjustified for justice.

also people use 'justice' as an excuse for revenge. but then again revenge iis probably unjustified, but sweet.

either way i right now i agree with the 2nd perception. lol.

Yeah, well. I'm a justice and law major.
I don't feel like writing essays in my free time. However, I'll leave you this tid bit so you dont get depressed with the loads of people posting "justICE LEAGUE111!"


There are three types of justice.

Procedual Justice (Was the procedures in our legal system handled properly)
Legal Justice (Is it just according to the law)
Substansive Justice (Was justice met properly)

The last being the most debatable part as it is based more so on individual views than the other two.

[That is of course simply explained, they're alot more indepth or else you wouldn't have to study them very hard]

There isn't a such thing as "true" justice, and it's up there with "true" love and the meaning of life. All three are highly subjective.

Within a legal system overall, "true" justice is basically allowing everyone involved to be heard - including offenders - and a number of people to debate fairly and give an unanimous verdict.

But sometimes, for many victims and their families a verdict may not be their idea of "true" justice. That's the case for some offenders and their families, too.

There are many factors that could - and do - make the legal process flawed. Such as bias (class, race, creed, etc), poor awareness or understanding (especially where white collar crimes are concerned), emotions, personal ambitions, politics, moronic traditions, and certain legal restrictions.

Sometimes it seems to me that the law system is a challenge for some to exploit or manipulate. A loophole helps some to walk free or be given light sentences. That's what makes it so crappy.

For what it's worth, anyway.

Hence we come full circle to the question asked: What does Justice mean to you?
It's at least a state of being or a state of mind...

^ What catex said are issues that fall within the three types of justice.

Sentance 1 is substansive justice. 2 is procedual. 3,4 are substansive again.
It's a broad subject and an interesting one.

All types of justice are arguable from differing points of view.

There is no true justice because for all people it has a different meaning...
For me , e.g. , justice is ,when you forgive someone ...so you can never compare justice to justice... it's really confusing, but because of the different point of views there is no justice... It's not justice to kill a murderer... you can't play with a humans life... that's it... if it's prison or death you have the life of a human in your hand, and thats not better than the villian...
Hope you get what I want to say ~.~

I missed this when I typed up mine (curse my slow typing skills). That's probably the best and cleanest definition.

And yeah, Law is an interesting little creature. It's a chameleon of social and/or cultural climate, which renders the idea of making "justice" definitive useless.
