Is true justice blind?

Not speaking about how it is administered in the system we have, but rather what it should be. Or should true justice be wielded selectively? I'm legitimately curious.

1. IS it or SHOULD it be?

Those are two different questions.

2. My opinion is that it is not justice if it isn't.

3. Other.

Justice is SUPPOSED to be blind. That’s our ideal and our ultimate goal. It’s encoded into the 14th Amendment which says that all people are equal under the law.

In practice, it’s a different story. It’s obvious that people ARE NOT equal under the law (for a variety of reasons), but “equal justice under the law” remains the goal of our judicial system.

5. That's kinda more what I meant.

Like, I don't think we've achieved true justice, because we do not administer it fairly and equally. But true justice would be blind, in my opinion.

4. I maintain that justice

is the law applied with compassion and to achieve justice laws must be continuously reviewed and revised.

6. The color of justice is green...I refuse to serve on a jury because I will never find

any person guilty until needed reforms are enacted.

8. Brad Parscale still isn't a victim

No matter what the All Lives Matter crowd says.

9. The all lives matter folks that advocated for unrestrained abuse by the police?

They are probably proud.
