Justice is always achieved through violence.

When a nation wants justice they carpet bomb the enemy, and drop nukes on their head.

When a government wants justice, they drag you from your car or home, lock you in a cage, put you before a joke of a court, and lock you in a bigger cage.

When an employer wants justice, they fire you and destroy the lives of you and your children.

Justice is always achieved through violence.

Unless, you’re poor, and beaten down. Then, you gotta wait. You gotta follow the rules they create. You gotta file the form, and follow the script. You gotta sit in your seat and keep a soft voice, and use those pretty words they taught you in that prison of a school.

And maybe, just maybe you’ll get justice.

When God wanted justice, He killed His Son for you.

Justice always comes through violence.

Then, maybe peace can come.
