#里茲螞蟻批判性思考寫作專欄 #Alex專欄 #外師每週精選閱讀
When reading about law, you may come across the concept that justice is “blind”. This is (still) a hotly debated concept which asserts that the dispensation of justice is supposed to be impartial. Although not entirely without basis, it is difficult to find many examples that demonstrate that there is such impartiality in law, but very easy to find evidence to the contrary. This is particularly the case when you consider the innumerable injustices faced by minorities, the poor, ex-criminals and other defendants who are incapable of paying for expensive legal representation, or bribing judges, or being judged without discrimination, and who are therefore most likely to be convicted and given more severe punishments. These common injustices demonstrate the very same inequalities that exist in broader society, but in a more concentrated form, thus precluding the possibility of impartial judiciaries in most countries.
What really makes a complete mockery of the entire concept of justice in jurisprudence though, is the legal right of some nation’s political leaders to completely annul any convictions they wish to, based on nothing more than a whim. In the case of the United States, it gives the president the authority to completely bypass the judiciary, effectively making the president a law unto himself. In practice, and recently demonstrated repeatedly by the outgoing president, it gives them a chance to let all their friends relatives and allies off the hook, further accentuating the pre-existing bias in the justice system. In this case, the law absolutely is an ass.
