Justice simply refers to being appropriately fair to things and persons within the society based on ethics, fairness and equity. In history justice has been the focus in the philosophical, legal, and theological demonstration (John, 1999). 1. 2 Thesis Justice has been thought to being a more fundamental right and it has been embraced only in court rooms. However, justice should also be applied in all areas in our daily life as it is the first virtue of social institution.
For instance, Justice as harmony, Justice as divine command and justice as authoritative command. Where justice as harmony implies that there is an appropriate relationship among the rival parties for the individual and the place just as Plato says. That is to say entrusting the institution with people to demonstrate justice in the best way possible. Justice as a divine commandment entails that Gods commandments should be respected. For example killing is wrong and therefore if found guilty the accused should be punished.
Justice as authoritative to command according to Thomas Hobbes includes those in authority coming up with policies whether unjust or just to govern people. In most cases justice here is unfair. (John, 1999). 1. 3 Transition This paper consists of the introduction highlighting the meaning of justice, writer’s opinion about justice including what other philosophers have said about various kinds of justice. The body of the paper will include arguments about justice system in American and finally the conclusion.
This paper is to evaluate the Americans confidence in the justice system, identify sources of information about the justice system for the public and factors that compel public attitudes towards justice system. Though in America justice is not equal to all for example the women, lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender (LGBT) and the minority. 2. 1. Americans confidence in justice Justice in American society prevails mostly in court rooms. Nevertheless the citizens of America have strong confidence in the justice system.
In additional, the confidence can be discriminatory by the level of understanding, court experience and personal qualities. All in all it is the best justice system in the world mainly due to its judges almost 69 percent of the Americans support the judge system as they believe that person innocence or being guilty can only be confirmed by the jury (Barzilai, 2003) 2. 2. Identify sources of information On a fair ground American are well conversant with the basic knowledge in the justice system and that why majority of them have confidence in the justice system.
Although those having knowledge with courts have immense frustration and criticism. 2. 3. Factors that compel public attitudes towards justice system. Certain factors can manipulate people’s confidence in the justice system. The confidence drivers that show assurance in the justice system should be sustained and reinforced. Such factors include knowledge in jury and therefore public awareness should be increased. Positive factors that discourage confidence should be dealt with and enhanced. Americans with court experience are positive and have high assurance about their justice system (Barzilai, 2003)
3. Conclusion Justice should allow people be treated equally irrespective of their age, sex, age, gender, race, religion, racial background, or sexual orientation. Justice should also be applied in other institutions not only the courts. The government should abolish such cases of unequal representation and promote equality among all the people by formulating appropriate policies. References John, R.
