Justice or Just Us

Seeking justice?: Even though they actually did it to shut people up, your government admitted that their police officers practiced racial profiling, among other racist practices, when they made laws against it.  You, yourself know that it’s going on.  Basically, we all know that it’s going on.  Now, if they were seeking justice in their “justice” system, “just finding out about their officer’s racism,” wouldn’t they go over every past case that could’ve involved racist practices by their officers?  What have they done?  Nothing.  This shows that they are not seeking justice, they’re seeking self benefit.  By not enforcing to reevaluate past cases though they could, the government shows that they don’t want to.  There could be a number of reasons why they don’t want to.  Any one will not yield justice.  “… with liberty and justice for all.”  Stop lying!

God loves justice and says that he is no respecter of persons, meaning, he does not show favoritism in judgment.  But this country has been the exact opposite.  You don’t seem to understand that you can’t have racism and at the same time have justice.  These are opposites.  Was it justice when a Black person couldn’t even take a White person to court?  Was it justice when a Black man would get hanged for looking a White man in the eyes?  Was it justice when the courts would have undeniable evidence in front of them showing that a Black person was innocent, but they would say guilty?  Was it justice when a White woman would get angry at a Black man for whatever reason and yell rape, and knowing that he didn’t rape her, the people would hang that Black man or the courts would jail that Black man?  And all of this, and more, was after slavery!  This was widespread only 60 years ago!

Saying guilty no matter what the evidence showed — I remember this always happening in the 80’s.  I also remember nearly everyone having no problem with it; even backing it.  For your whole history it was normal everyday practice to arrest innocent Blacks; falsely accuse innocent Blacks; for judges and juries to knowingly convict innocent Blacks; and for anyone to kill innocent Blacks and offer up any excuse for doing so and be found not guilty.  All of this was just as normal as breathing –it always happened.  And yet you say that America is a place of justice.

{Throughout America’s history when there was a rare occasion where a Black person would be found innocent, many Whites would say that there was something wrong with the system.  The thought of that Black person actually being innocent never even entered their mind, even with undeniable evidence that that person is innocent.  That’s because in the US if you’re arrested, then depending on who you are, who the victim is, and what the crime is, in most Whites eyes you’re guilty.  In their minds they think that being arrested means you’re guilty.  If you’re Black and you’re simply arrested, not even charged yet, then you’re guilty.  This is how it’s always been.  So, when a Black person is arrested and found not guilty, there has to be a problem.  In the sixties, racist Whites/Whites who were racist used to argue about this all the time.  As the “justice” system started becoming more just and not convicting every Black that stood before a judge, racist Whites would be outraged and say that the system was giving Blacks breaks.  The system actually becoming more just, was the system becoming more unjust in their eyes.  That’s how opposite-justice this country is because of the partiality of racism.}

The Rodney King beating was one of the many incidents that showed how injustice was the norm.  The whole country saw the video taped beating over and over again, and the officers were acquitted.  The jury acquitted the officers with everyone watching –knowing that everyone would find out.  They did it though everyone was watching because they didn’t feel as though they were doing anything wrong.  In other words, injustice against Blacks was still the norm (but then the norm was shown to the nation).  So, even up to 1992 injustice against Blacks was the norm in this “land of justice.”  That whole trial was televised and that injustice happened, so just think of what went on (and still goes on) every single day while no one was watching.

Today, if trials were televised, no one would dare do such a thing in the open; when it is done, it has to stay quiet.  And this is only because of the riots/uprisings.  If the riots/uprisings would have never happened, and no reaction such as that would have happened from then to now, then Blacks would still be receiving injustice in the open (you would clearly see people’s true colors).  The riots/uprisings caused people to run to deception.  Now it’s like: “Okay, now I know how to play this.  Don’t do anything in the open; make sure things that do happen stay in the background, out of the public eye; and pretend like you care when something is very much in the public eye.”

{The Rodney King trial, combined with the racism in the O.J. Simpson trial; now they don’t televise such trials.  They don’t want you to see an example of the injustice that goes on every single day in courts across America.}

In this system of “justice,” if being in jail isn’t enough, the people on death-row have to sit in their cells everyday and think about the day they are going to be killed.  That’s real torture.  Blacks don’t have to wait as long (Is that good or bad?), a proven, statistical fact.  Check for yourself.  Think about this: Who are you to choose who lives and dies?  Society and the “justice” system can’t even make an unbiased decision, so how could this be left to you all?

We all know that judges and juries can be racist.  Many in society, which juries are made of, saw the Rodney King verdicts and didn’t see the injustice, or saw it and didn’t care, but saw the O.J. Simpson verdicts and saw injustice.  Who would want to be judged by people like that?  If you’re seeking justice, how could you leave judging to people like that?  Judges have given a White man who killed a couple of people twenty years, and then turn around and give a Black man who killed one White woman the chair.  Something ain’t right!  If you do it to one, do it to others.  The fact that they don’t shows you that they cannot give justice.  If you don’t have justice now, and before now, that is, from now back to the “justice” system’s start, you definitely know that you didn’t have justice, then you know that you’ve never had justice in your “justice” system.

The death penalty is something to be taken seriously, but isn’t taken seriously enough in the US.  Taking a life is the most serious thing anyone could do, but juries and judges still convict and sentence people to death without even having enough evidence against them.  Well, actually they have what they consider to be enough evidence–beyond a reasonable doubt.  Beyond a reasonable doubt isn’t enough when dealing with someone’s life.  People have been found innocent even when at first they were proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.  This shows that “beyond a reasonable doubt” is flawed.  Their “enough” isn’t enough.  It also shows that there is a huge chance that many people could have been innocently put to death.

Facts about the Death Penalty

When you take someone’s life, whether you’re a judge, juror, gangster, government official, or drunk driver you not only affect that person, you’re affecting the whole universe.  As in the movies, when someone goes back in time, they’re always told that any little thing they did would alter the future.  Those were just little things, think about what kind of an impact someone’s death would have.  That situation is the same for your present.  Someone’s death affects their family, which might affect their job, which affects you.  Everything from people and plants to bacteria that had daily, monthly, annually, etc., contact with that person, is affected first hand.  Those affected people and things affect other people and things (domino effect).  The person who was killed could have been the person to save someone’s  daughter from drowning five years later.  Could have, should have, would have.

If one person dies, we are all affected in some way or another, either now, later, big or small.  You cannot see into the future, so there’s no way of knowing how much damage killing one person will make, and it’s stupid to even take that chance.  Altering the future is serious when it comes to animals in the wild, and your movies, but not humans in real life?

Torture, extortion, bribes, manipulation, lies, murders, cover-ups, frame-ups, favoritism, racism, drug dealing, and more are a known, allowed, permanent part of the “justice” system.  It’s not a few isolated incidents by a few bad apples, it is the system.  It amazes me how people in this country can find out time and time again how an officer or other person connected to the system planted evidence, forced a confession, imprisoned an innocent person, created phoney witnesses, etc. and still have, or not care and seem to have, full trust in the system.  That is just unbelievable.

After witnessing one instance of case-corruption, a just person with common sense would question the integrity of the next case.  After witnessing multiple instances of case-corruption, knowing them to not be isolated incidents, a just person with common sense would question the integrity of every future case.  The system would be tried along with the accused.  But with most people in America, it doesn’t happen.  They don’t ask for reform, and the system is not an issue.  They trust it.  Even seeing one death row inmate after another being released because DNA testing proved them innocent, they trust it (or don’t care).  Even seeing people of the system wanting to stop such testing, and refusing to do such testing after they saw how one death row inmate after another was found innocent, they trust it.  Maybe that blindfolded statue should stand for the people.

Since it seems like you have a problem with the definition:



How does the God you claim to be following feel about all of this, and what do the teachings you claim to follow say?

Exodus 23:1-3
1 Do not spread false rumors, and do not help a guilty person by giving false testimony. 2 Do not follow the majority when they do wrong or when they give testimony that perverts justice. 3 Do not show partiality to a poor person at his trial.
Exodus 23:6-8
6 Do not deny justice to a poor person when he appears in court. 7 Do not make false accusations, and do not put an innocent person to death, for I will condemn anyone who does such an evil thing. 8 Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe makes people blind to what is right and ruins the cause of those who are innocent.

15 Be honest and just when you make decisions in legal cases; do not show favoritism to the poor or fear the rich.
Deuteronomy 16:18, 19
18 Appoint judges and other officials in every town that the Lord your God gives you. These men are to judge the people impartially. 19 They are not to be unjust or show partiality in their judgments; and they are not to accept bribes, for gifts blind the eyes even of wise and honest men, and cause them to give wrong decisions.

22 Don’t take advantage of the poor just because you can; don’t take advantage of those who stand helpless in court.
Proverbs 28:5
5 Evil people do not know what justice is, but those who worship the Lord understand it well.
Proverbs 29:7
7 The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.
Isaiah 5:22, 23
22 Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine and champions at mixing drinks, 23 who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent.

Jeremiah 9:24
24 but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the LORD.
Lamentations 3:34-36
34 To crush underfoot all prisoners in the land, 35 to deny a man his rights before the Most High, 36 to deprive a man of justice– would not the Lord see such things?
Amos 5:10-15
10 You people hate anyone who challenges injustice and speaks the whole truth in court. 11 You have oppressed the poor and robbed them of their grain. And so you will not live in the fine stone houses you build or drink wine from the beautiful vineyards you plant. 12 I know how terrible your sins are and how many crimes you have committed. You persecute good people, take bribes, and prevent the poor from getting justice in the courts. 13 And so, keeping quiet in such evil times is the smart thing to do! 14 Make it your aim to do what is right, not what is evil, so that you may live. Then the Lord God Almighty really will be with you, as you claim he is. 15 Hate what is evil, love what is right, and see that justice prevails in the courts. Perhaps the Lord will be merciful to the people of this nation who are still left alive.
Zechariah 8:16
16 These are the things you should do: Speak the truth to one another. In the courts give real justice – the kind that brings peace.
James 2:1-9
1 My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don’t show favoritism. 2 Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in shabby clothes also comes in. 3 If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” 4 have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? 5 Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him? 6 But you have insulted the poor. Is it not the rich who are exploiting you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court? 7 Are they not the ones who are slandering the noble name of him to whom you belong? 8 If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right. 9 But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers.
