The rights of the general

03 July 2014, 11:00 Jibunor George Chuks

What rights are we talking about! If the rights of the people have been taken away by the same people that made or created the right. The rights they created has been seen tramped and sat upon by them. Thereby justice at which they suppose to render to the people has turned to what we could called ''buy and win with what you have''.

Many people have been unfairly judged, sentenced and jailed simply because they have no one to intervene for them. How a prison room could contain about 20-30 in-mates just in one(1) room. This people are meant to serve the punishment of the wrong they committed by a law which is meant to protect them and correct their wrongs but not by taken away their rights; we ask again: Where are the rights of those prisoners? Rich people serve their jail term in a good prison for stealing billions and poor people serve theirs in a terrible mo-hill called prisons.

We don't get fair justice for crimes of the poor! But the rich does. Its  bizarre. True justice has a mandate and that is to protect the "Rights" of the people. In general, everyone in quote, irrespective of our status in life. In doing that, the true rights of the people will be respected and treated with equal rights of justice. God bless us.
