Finding JUSTICE

"Life isn't fair." It's a pretty common statement, and too often true. But why isn't life fair? Why do we see so much evidence of imperfect justice and uneven enforcement? Why do we need conferences such as the one held in April at Harvard Law School entitled, "Wrongful Convictions: A Call to Action"?

It's pretty clear that our systems of law don't ensure justice. As a matter of fact, history affords plenty of evidence that the law can actually deprive people of justice. One such example is the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. It was conducted according to the law, but impelled by inferior motives—hatred and jealousy.
