JUSTICE


The sad fact of the current cries for equal justice in the U.S. is the statistical inequality of crime in the U.S.. While a certain factor of those statistics can be modified to allow for racism, sexism, homophobia, class discrimination, the reality remains that certain groups in our society are more prone to be involved in criminal behavior than others. And, I include those at the top of society, especially politicians, in those crime-prone groups.
 
The best way to avoid injustice is to live justly. Living lawfully and nonviolently does not require money or a particular skin color. In most communities, it does require courage. It seems to me courage is more lacking than  justice in some groups who claim victimhood. Courage to be a lawful person is not limited by skin color, religious beliefs, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.
