Guilty or Not Guilty - Who give us justice in this world?

Extracts from this document...


Guilty or Not Guilty Who give us justice in this world? Who protect our justice in this world? It is pessimistic to say that there is no ESTREME justice in this world, however it is true. The court, should give us the EXTREME justice, but unfortunately it cannot. Why? Because it is run by man. No one can say he or she is extremely honest and nobody can make him or herself being honest and justice all the time. There always have some disturbance to this justice.

As a result, for my opinion, in order to have the EXTREME justice, there should not have any disturbance, nor any pressure, but a free environment for juries and judges to do their work.
