Justice to me is more then making the "bad guy" pay for their crime. Justice is answers, Justice leads to peace. Justice is the voice of reason when all else falls apart. Justice is not always fair and often times seems unreasonable.
There recently was a car accident in Phoenix. A 12 year old died, her brother in a coma, and mother severely injured. The man driving the truck was facing charges for child prostitution and was able to be on the streets for over 2 years as a free man because of a series of legal loopholes. An unrelated incident took this littler girls life. She wasn't a victim of his sickness. She died because he failed to stop for a red light. This little girl's sacrifice is devastating and sad. The family moved back to Phoenix from Illinois to have a better life. They were not in phoenix for 24 hours before the accident happened. Because of this girl, a sick man can't hurt children anymore. Many people have said if God needed someone to die for a sicko to pay for his crime, take me instead. While it's sad, I am happy to know that this girl's death will prevent the rape and trafficking of children. They will be able to prosecute this man for life because of what one soul gave.
Justice comes in many forms. It's not always recognizable, but everyone will get justice for their loss. The question is, will they see it and when?
After my sister's daughter died she couldn't see justice or could I. One day 2 jailers got lost on a back road. They pulled into the first place that was open. My sister was working that day. It turns out these jailers worked at the same prison that her murderous husband was in. They told her about her husband and how he is treated. They promised her to make his life in prison a living hell. Well I don't wish ill will on the most vicious predator, he got what was coming to him and everyday he is reminded of how much he is hated for what he took.
The system of justice is only good as the people in it and those who fight to have it's voice heard. Justice is blind when we sit back and do nothing. Justice is silent when we feel scared to speak out. Justice is about being brave and sometimes making a difficult decision to speak out when people tell us to let go.
There is no nepitism in justice and No favoritism, just answers and the bad guys pay for what they did, they pay hard.
