Yes, you heard that from me. No, I won't go further.
Justice and law are not always one and the same justice as legal and moral can be mutually exclusive.

The assumption is because something is legal it is moral. I have said many times that what might be legal is not necessarily moral/ethical. Illegal also does not mean immoral/unethical.

What I find interesting, maybe not directly from you Sam, is that people who claim law and order means moral, when the situation fits change their minds.
Twice a week? 14 times a month?
2x4=8, not 14.
Many of the truths that we cling to depend on our point of view.
