Justice For The Victim

Lately we've been hearing about criminal trials being about "justice for the victim."

Where did this idea come from?

(In a particular case, namely Michael Brown, he has already received the ultimate justice of God.)

\\Justice for the victim -- in the Old Testament that is called "EYE FOR EYE AND TOOTH FOR TOOTH."
---Sin on 10/20/14\\

This was understood to be compensatory damages for the victim, NOT an excuse for court ordered mayhem.

And I was talking about CRIMINAL trials, not civil trials.

Can you tell the difference?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Just, want to say Bro.Cluny, I agree so, much with your answer on here, concerning the thief, or people in general we all receive many times over mercy than what we deserve, you are right, in my opinion.
I pray God be mercifull to me, when my time comes, I have nothing but to say even through I cry tears, I miss my daughter so, much but, I still know God mercy. .
Love of Jesus!

\\When you run with three hundred or more thieves it might appear to be. \\

Did he?

\\Cluny: I agree that Michael Brown got what he deserved.\\

BTW, petty theft of cigars and strong arming the store owner are NOT capital crimes.

One more we won't see again in the store or alley.

Pro_6:30 Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry,

We despise the others.....or should.

jerry, I hope that Michael Brown got BETTER than he deserved when he stood before the Great Judgement Seat.

Just as I hope that you and I get better than we deserve at that time.

I hope we all get mercy, and NOT what we deserve.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

There is little rehabilitation of criminals in the country where I live. Maybe there is someplace else. Criminal justice is big business, especially with the proliferation private prisons, which the stockholders want to keep filled.

Cluny: I agree that Michael Brown got what he deserved. He, like Travon Martin, was a criminal and was killed by the VICTIM while committing an unprovoked criminal act. The racist press uses such events to evoke sympathy for the criminal in order to garner votes in upcoming elections. Never mentioned are the scores of murders committed by blacks on whites and blacks.

This is an evil world. So, I don't expect someone to do what is right unless that person is first changed by God in his or her character so the person becomes a truly loving person. Ones are trying to get by this and just make the system change the way they want . . . maybe so they can have things their own way without changing for Jesus.

God knows all that was really going on. If Michael did rob a store, you can reap much more evil than you sow. If you do things wrong in Satan's kingdom, the consequences will not be fair.

But if we sow in God's kingdom, we reap much more and much better than what is fair (c: Galatians 6:7-8

So, I am very courteous and careful with police. I know ones can be evil people and abusers.

In our legal system , the emphasis is on rehabilitating the criminal,
The poor victim was just in the wrong place at the wrong time !
There's no such thing as "punishment". and very little compensation for victims !
---1stcliff on 9/15/14


Justice is always for the victim, but we are very quick to judge, to establish who the victim is/was.
Proverbs 18:17 The one who states his case first seems right, until the other [party] comes and examines him.

Specifically, the police should have came out sooner with details of the incident and not let if foster for multiple weeks.
