Justice? Not in Chicago

A wise judge once said: " There is no such thing as justice. There are only laws and rules of proceedure." Remember that for every litagant who get justice, there is another one who has suffered an unspeakable outrage. I have lost many a case due to political cronyism, and will likely lose more in the future. Corrupt judges are like vampires. They cannot stand the light of day. Most people do not even know who their local judges are, let alone some of the absurd decisions they make for their patronage pals. Viva la revolucion.

A now deceased former federal judge in Chicago told me once when I was there on recruiting duty with the Marines that we do not have a nation of justice but a nation of laws and they are written by politicians who are primarily lawyers who write the laws primarily for the benefit of politions who are primarily lawyers. Now, wonder why obamacare and most of the other laws and regulations promugated my the current "chicago stlyle" administration requires so many pages? Or as pelosi stated "let's pass the bill so we can see what is in it". and we, nor they still do not know. Corruption, smoke and mirrors, and lies.

I don't agree. Justice exists and lies in opinions of God, and that is why the whole idea of God bothers the haters so much. God's thinking is in the Bible, in my opinion, of course.
Among rules given the early Hebrews, justice was not to be subverted to the advantage of a person just because they happened to be poor. No special favors to them. Amazing that the concept that Lady Justice should be blindfolded is in the Bible. In the Psalms the userer is condemned and the psalmist asks God not to make them so rich they forget him, nor so poor that stealing is a temptation.

But I do agree that justice is subverted by men, every day, in every way.

In 2004, a nephew of Chicago’s then-mayor Richie Daley got into an altercation off of Rush Street, the Windy City’s alcohol-fueled playground for revelers and romancers. Taunts were thrown, obscenities exchanged, and in an instant, a kid from the suburbs, David Koschman, who was just 21 years old at the time, fell backwards, his head making an audible thump as it contacted the street.

A friend says that he was unconscious before he hit the ground  

According to witnesses R. J. Vanecko, a current Daley nephew and a former college lineman who weighed in a 230 pounds and stands 6-feet-3,...
