Three men, including a military accountant, were lynched by a mob in a tragic case of mistaken identity.
This is what I got when I looked up for the definition of Justice:the maintenance or administration of what is just especially by the impartial adjustment of conflicting claims or the assignment of merited rewards or punishments.
the administration of law; especially : the establishment or determination of rights according to the rules of law or equity
So, as far as I am concerned,the only one who can administer justice is the judge and God. There is a process where a judge listens to the accused and finally makes a decision on whether to send the person to prison or set him free. It is rare that the accused is given the death penalty.
So,what has become of us to kill. We can’t give anyone the breathe of life so who gave us that ability. I agree some deeds done by the accused could be unspeakable but have you considered that taking matters into your own hands could impair your future judgement? For instance the story of the mob that killed 3 innocent people. These are characteristics of a mob justice: they never listen, they are all filled with hate and they base their justice on a rumour they heard. Now, you and I know how biased rumours could be. So how can you judge someone based on something you heard? How sure are you that he did what you say he did?
So many People have been killed due to mob justice and reports of such act increase by the day. Why kill another human being. Din’t God, the giver of life say that we should leave judgement to him? Why have we become so ruthless and heartless?
And when we realize that we killed an innocent man, why did we rub it off like it doesn’t matter and console ourselves saying we din’t know? It’s not our obligation to take matters in our own hands. What is a fact is, you have left a family without a father,a sister, a brother or a mother.
The fact still remains that we have killed a person and it does not matter if he was innocent r not. We have impaired judgement and hence we should not kill anyone.
Stop doing a judge’s job and judging people yet you have neither the ability nor are you righteous enough to judge. Learn something called forgive and forget. This applies to me as well. I am not judging, I am stating what is wrong.
Good morning Kenyans!!!
