True justice stands upon the ideals of liberty and due process for all. Yet, in today’s modern era, our overburdened legal system is more vulnerable than ever to handling people like numbered parts on an assembly line. This is no way to treat people. The effect is often devastating, leaving the accused helpless to an unknown and unfriendly future. In these cases, the spirit of the law has been forgotten.
The law should not function as a weapon of oppression, a pawn of political ambition or a tool for those in authority to abuse. The law exists to protect people—all people. We are here to remind those in power of what many have forgotten.
The law and the liberty it affords should not be mutually exclusive. The law does not stand alone. The liberty and due process that the law is supposed to stand for still lives in the hearts and voices of those who reject a system that limits itself to rigid interpretations of circumstance and one-sided results. This is not justice for the people the system purports to protect. It’s not justice at all. We’ll fight for you and these endangered principles to ensure that the law’s deep-rooted principles are not forgotten and neither are you.
