Our nation was founded on the belief…no the conviction that justice cannot be had when it remains in the hands of the select few. However we do appoint representatives and agencies to seek that justice on BEHALF OF THE PEOPLE lest everyone decide on their own what is legal or not legal and go about exacting their own justice. The only thing more dangerous than the order of tyranny, is the chaos of vigilanteism.
Even when the results of our JUSTICE SYSTEM may seem unsatisfactory, it is indeed just that we either accept it or work within the system to change it so that similar results never occur again. However, what if that which we agree is illegal and indeed harming others is ignored by the ones we appoint and look to to pursue due justice? When we abide such a culture in our legal system are we submitting to their authority or affirming and ultimately adopting their complacency?
What if the people appeal to all the channels and move up and down the chains of command only to be told nothing will be done, are they protecting the people they work for or the people they were appointed to protect them from?
When people finally step up to fight and put down the villain(s) the powers that be refuse to despite their call by the people to do so, are you taking justice into your own hands or are you simply refusing to let it fall by the wayside?
If the powers that be try to stop you, telling you it is their “business” to do such things and have chosen to let the crimes and thus injustices continue and so should you, yet you still chose to do what they wont, who is ultimately seeking justice and who is ultimately acting against it?
When the people take up the power to stop the villains the powers that be wont in order to put an end to the crimes they are allowing, are the people robbing the authorities of power or are the people taking back a power that is rightfully theirs already in order to keep from being robbed from justice that is also theirs?
In the end who is ultimately responsible for protecting the people rights and seeing that the people have a just society?
These questions can only be answered by first answering, does justice and the power to gain and maintain it belong to the entities the people created and appointed or do these things belong to WE THE PEOPLE?
