| Here we have another
reason the nation cannot survive. Justice is denied. Now and then somebody
may be falsely accused, but usually the victims are ignored and the
criminals are not treated so gently. They are only the results of a bad
society. A bad society does contribute to making criminals and refusing to
punish criminals helps make society bad.
For instance, a woman ran her car against another while drunk (twice the legal limit), this being the fourth time she was arrested for driving on a suspended license, leaving the scene of the accident, four people were injured and she ran away but later caught. She is obviously a good-for-nothing criminal. But when she comes before a so-called "judge" he sentences her to four years in prison but only has to serve seven months. Destroying property, risking lives, violating the law and gets away with a slap on the wrist. That is justice?
One reason Israel and Judah fell. Corrupt judges and permissiveness toward evil. And onward we march to our national ruin! Who cares? I do.
