Justice Deferred Is Unjust

Justice Deferred Is Unjust

Juror B29 in the ZImmerman murder trial is certain that Mr. Zimmerman committed a murder and that he should receive punishment for that act.   She however eventually voted to acquit.    In her interview she says  ”But you can’t get away from God” .  Herein lies another failure for belief in the nonexistent.  It seems likely that one reason Maddy was willing to let Mr. Zimmerman go free is that she believes he will the punished in the after life.  For thousands of years people have suffered and died with this sort of an excuse.   It is time to stop using the unknowable as an excuse for real pain.     Any society that allow imaginary repayment for real debts is inherently and horribly unjust.
