FEATURED COMMENT – Vigilantism does bad things, but justice system has failed

Unfortunately, when you are subjugated under a legal system based in finances and not living with a justice system then there will always be vigilante justice as it is the only way for justice to be served.

There are and have been some hideous wrong doings in the commission of vigilantism but they are also countered by the vast majority of court sanctioned misscarriages of “justice.” 

How many were hanged innocently? How many jailed for no reason? How many corporations trample the unwashed masses in their thirst for money and use the courts and scum lawyers to do it?

I’m not arguing that what these dipshits did was right but there is a reason why, it is the utter failiure of the legal system over a justice system and the people it is supposed to serve and protect.

  1. I don’t believe in vigilante justice, but I do believe in justice ie. (An eye for an eye). I have worked in the justice system and witnessed hainus crimes with very little punishment. I also have been part of a victim’s family and seen the lack of punishment and waist of tax payers dollars keeping someone alive who I feel strongly should have been sentenced to death (Clifford Olson). If there was a poll I feel most Canadians would be for capital punishment for pédophiles and serial killers.

  2. Pat Murphy’s piece here in the Columns, under, ‘Looking Back At Leadership: Rating The U.S. Presidents.’ Mr. Murphy attempts to qualify one’s opinion on sound leadership leading towards (a) just society, without too much centralization of one’s own opinion therein.

    He asks -and I’ve enlarged the same question here,

    ‘(How) do you keep it even moderately free of ideological bias, (when assuming what is/has been good leadership)?’

    -Well, to me, you find the places ‘they whom rule’ have applied what is fair and what is just, then you have a common person’s view of the application of justice and equanimity for all.
