    Sometimes you have to play dirty to get justice. T or F?

    Feel free to elaborate. Do you feel it's justified to do things that in other circumstances would be seen as unethical if it means justice prevails in the end?

    The whole reason for stuff like due process and the fifth amendment is the idea that the proper administration of justice requires respecting the accused. I think this principal applies universally, even to terrorists or enemy combatants or whatever you wish to call them.

    Well i think the truth is sometimes you dont get justice and there is nothing you can do about it.

    False.

    If you have to play dirty, you are using unjust means to get justice.

    And....You get the point.

    Justice is nothing more than the desire to take revenge leavened with a concern for social proprieties. Playing dirty eschews those ideals of how a just society should operate and leaves nothing behind but the revenge. You can never get justice by playing dirty because playing clean is an intrinsic element of justice.

    On a side note, I believe that the justness of our justice has been so diluted that we should be very careful about letting anyone water it down any further.

    Absolutely.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    What you see as justice may differ from what I see. So long as the end goal is subjective, the only way we can maintain any sort of standard is to enforce objective rules of conduct.
