Deeper Justice

Injustice in the name of justice is no justice at all.

Deeper justice v. adversarial judiciary

Justice is more than a matter of law. Laws exist to serve the needs of justice. Whose justice needs are best served by our judicial laws? Who is best served by how they are enforced? If some are better served than others, why call it justice?

Human needs predate the laws we draft to compel each other to address them. 

Without accountability to outcomes and impacts, adversarial justice trends needlessly being divisive. 

Deeper justice stems from need-response, applying the new social science of anankelogy for understanding justice and other needs.

Culprits of pain, of trauma

 

To identify and address all the needs on all affected sides

To bridge the need for public safety with justice needs

Conviction quality

The adversarial judicial process seeks a binary outcome: guilty or not guilty. Based primarily upon persuasive arguments, this win-lose outcome tends to be empirically divorced from the justice needs it ostensibly serves. Oversimplifying the consequences of interpersonal violence as a matter of impersonal law grossly ignores the depths of reality.

 

Deeper justice counters with an empirically based degree of certainty of culpability to misconduct of all involved.

UNDER-CARED

For the adjudicated population in need of responsive mental health services

The incarceration of those suffering mental health challenges often starts with a wellness check. Their behavior spins out of control. A family member calls 911. An officer shows up at their door.

Instead of arriving with desperately needed care, the officer typically identifies violations of criminal law. Although deep in a mental health crisis, the officer typically prioritizes the safety of others.
