Een soort justitie zonder legitimiteit

De perceptie, het robuust paradigma – het icoon Justitie: blinddoek en weegschaal – brokkelt onmogelijk en hopeloos af, alles wordt over boord gegooid en er is een afglijden naar een zinloos gebeuren. De slinger slaat te ver door in de verkeerde richting.
Wanneer je terecht komt in een minderwaardig gebeuren van haperingen en disfuncties, waarbij er niets overblijft van justitie.
Een kopie van de metafoor Diederik Stapel. Wetenschapsfraude van een onaantastbare steracademicus met wereldfaam. (Deel 2 van de website).
Er wordt niet eens een gewone inhoudelijke vraag gesteld nopens de kwestie die voorligt: ‘is dit wel zo’. Er is alleen de valstrik. Het misbruiken en het ontwrichten justitie. ‘A perversion of justice’, ‘pretended justice’, ‘preventing the law being put into action’.
Een unfair gebeuren de schaamte voorbij, iets zonder legitimiteit, de paradox, zich nergens op steunend, iemand verbrijzelen en over iemand heen rijden.

A black woman was also raped around that time and no news on her back then. Parents educate yourself about your rights if your child is arrested. Tell them not to say anything without an attorney present. The DA and police involved in this case need to be charged
