Justice is the hardest to explain thing in the world.
It's an Idea.
Just like you can't say what love is and have it be universal.
Justice = freedom for innocent + punishment for criminal is generally the idea.
But when you break it down to the nitty gritty.. is there really anyone who's Innocent?
Does thought count when it comes to "criminal?"
Who makes those choices.
No one wants to stand up and be the descision maker for justice.
It's the hardest thing in the world to do.

Justice is order and maintaining order and judging those guilty and punishing those harshly depending on the crime they commited

It means the balancing of the wrong doing done to others. No biasness in play just strightout justice- no blackmailing or anything, just a rightful sentence placed onto theright criminal

Well, you but it with a capital J like that, I instantly think of the goddess Justitia (Themis in Greek).

For me though, I consider justice to be an unethical mindset. I can understand the idea of quarantining dangerous individuals or asking people to retribute, as we per our laws, but someone should always be open towards forgiveness and not let an animosity, even of a wrongdoing, cloud their judgment. Sadly, I feel because we generally accept justice, the latter happens for more than it should.

Edit: Just to clarify, intention matters the most with justice. For me, thinking a murderer should be put in jail lest he kills another and thinking a murdered should be put in jail because he killed someone close to you and must pay the penalty are two very different mindsets IMO. The former is rational while the later is emotional, and it's only when emotions are involved is our judgment clouded.

What does justice mean to me, was the question?

There are two reasons for having a justice system: to fix wrongs that have happened and to prevent wrongs from happening in the first place. Either the person or people who have done the wrong must be called upon to restore what they have damaged, either in service or in payment, or people who have done wrongs are held to prevent further wrongs. This "payment", in a criminal matter, is often referred to as "paying one's debt to society". Or an example of a preventive measure would be an injunction prohibiting an act.

With that as a basis for reference, I can skip several very long paragraphs here and just say that to me, justice is either calling people to answer for a redress of wrongs or preventing the wrong to occur in the first place. And straight out revenge does neither of these things.
