The individual this officier that walked up to me one day six months in my prison did he says who are you, his name was Jerome Jones, and ignorantly I answered I’m Yusef Salaam one of the guys they accused of raping a Central Park Five jogger but I didn’t do it and to my surprise he says I know that you’re not supposed to be here I’ve been watching you why you are here who are you and it caused me to think about things from this very philosophical position of you know being born finding purpose in life and all of those things that you’re always told about from elders and I remember saying to myself man I never knew what the meaning of my name meant…

Transcript ‘Yusef Salaam What He Learned From Adversity at min 1:48

This simple sentence ‘I know that you’re not supposed to be here’ from officier Jerome Jones to Yusef Salaam in prison shows, how cruel justice can be: even if they know you have done nothing wrong, they leave you behind bars, in the case of Yusef Salaam for almost seven years!

Justice is struggling like a devil in a holy water basin

Five young boys of color who did nothing wrong fabricated in prison!

Yusef Salaam on What He Learned From Adversity

Justice is sometimes a raw reality,

just like the raw reality of life that so many people and children have to face.

A person is reduced to an outcast.

This is about which the website is all about:

a reflection of society,

crumbling justice.

A child mines gold in Watsa, northeastern Congo, in 2004.

A 2014 report by the United Nations estimates that tens of millions of people in the world are currently enslaved. Most of them are in the developing world, where they work in mines, quarries or shrimp farms for no money and without hope of escape.

Slavery is the result of vulnerability

This is ‘The End of Normal’.

Justice and reality come face to face! 
Vrouwe Justitia met de blinddoek, de weegschaal en het zwaard; Mozes met de stenen tafelen

Lady Justice with the blindfold, the scales and the sword; Moses with the stone tablets

2 It is adhorrant and it should not have happened that these peolpe are innocent behind bars:

25 years Innocent behind bars

39 years Innocent behind bars

30 years Innocent behind bars

6 years Innocent behind bars

10 years Innocent behind bars

7 to 13 years innocent behind bars

9 boys 13 to 17 years old – innocent behind bars

Age 14, Executed innocent via electric chair!!!!

43 years Innocent behind bars

and so on ...

Plenty of examples under the Baffling menu

 

Innocent behind bars is

Horrible
Inconceivable
Inconprehensible
Unthinkable

In other words:

it is a legal system that is decidedly wrong.

The law has been carried out wrongly.
There was obstruction to the course of justice.

(= preventing the law being put into action).
3 The legal system at stake

Horrifying case of boy, 14, executed on death row for heinous crimes he didn’t commit

George Stinney Jr was so small and puny that executioners struggled to attach his young body to the electric chair. 

He was convicted of murder in just 10 minutes, but it took 70 years to prove he was innocent.

As miscarriages of justice go, few cases are as harrowing as that of George Stinney Jr.

The African-American boy was 14-years-old when he was accused of murdering two white girls in 1944.

 A jury took just 10 minutes to find him

guilty despite no evidence to link him to the crime.

Two months later he was killed on death row without a chance to say goodbye to his family.

Unconfirmed reports claimed guards had to use a bible or telephone directory as a booster seat because at just 5ft 1ins tall and weighing 6st 7lbs, he was too small for the adult-size seat.

His sisters, Katherine Robinson and Amie Ruffner, along with their brother Charles, spent the next 70 years fiercely fighting for justice and finally, in 2014, a judge overturned George’s murder conviction.

George Stinney’s case was just a show trial!

Are you still human when you inflict such an unbearable pain on an innocent child?

Is this still a society?

There was hardly a lawyer who did anything to help this child.

A prime example of a broken legal system.

Justice on the wrong side of the law!

The Wild West of the legal state.

It has nothing to do anymore with fairness, honesty or what really happened

The justice system itself is finally being questioned.

A blatantly wrong injustice system

George Stinney is not the only young boy innocent executed on the electric chair:

Alexander McClay Williams

Rowing harder doesn’t help if the boat
is headed in the wrong direction.

KENICHI OHMAE

Fairness? The time it takes to deliver justice, injustice has usually permanently damaged the most essential thing to remember.

Welcome to the world-famous Just for Laughs Gags channel, where we pull public pranks on unsuspecting Montreal residents and tourists

It is ‘a contradiction in terms’

that justice either on the basis of sheer incompetence

(as prosecutor Jerry Hayes in the Liam Allan case puts it)

or in an organised manner and with outrageous sneaky practices

gets those who have done nothing wrong into trouble.

Justice opens the gates of hell with baseless claims:

‘Ricky Jakson’ was innocent in prison for 39 years,

 on the basis of a child who was blackmailed into giving false testimony.

This is horrible
Inconceivable
Inconprehensible
Unthinkable

In other words:

what not can happen becomes reality

Such a thing no longer has anything in common with justice,

it is a form of Modern Day Slavery:

the deliberate exploitation of people who have done nothing wrong.

The dark side of justice.

OVERVIEW

perverting the course of justice

QUICK REFERENCE

Carrying out an act that tends or is intended to obstruct or defeat the administration of public justice. Common examples are inventing false evidence to mislead a court (in either civil or criminal proceedings) or an arbitration tribunal, making false statements to the police, stealing or destroying evidence, threatening witnesses, and attempting to influence jurors. The maximum penalty is life imprisonment and/or a fine. The common-law offence of perverting the course of justice overlaps with certain forms of contempt of court and with the separate offence of tampering with witnesses. It is not an offence, however, to offer money to someone to persuade him not to proceed with an action in the civil courts; nor is it an offence to offer to pay reasonable compensation to the victim of a crime, if he will agree not to take criminal proceedings (Criminal Law Act 1967 s 5(1). However, once he has made a statement to the police in connection with possible proceedings, it is an offence to attempt to induce him to withdraw or alter his statement.

Oxford Dictionary
7 Do not make a mistake evil does exist in this world

Children pass piles of stone ready for the re-paving on a road in Bihar, India.

You have to do what you have to do

Said of any task or obligation that one must undertake or go through with, especially when it is difficult, unpleasant, undesirable, inconvenient, etc.
