When you say someone deserves justice, what do you mean, exactly? What is justice made of?
It means different things to different people.To me,it is a person or people getting what they deserve to have,positively or negatively.Equality and justice are not necassarily synonomous.

Intersting question. It seems that our Justice System doesn't always deliver what I would consider justice.
I believe that justice doesn't truly exist in this world
And hypothetically maybe us an unfathomable idea
Like loving your neighbors. ..kinda depends on the neighbor ....
As close as can get is rehabilitation for all victims, and therapeutic care for perpetrators, because revenge is a huge waste of energy, time , money and negative emotions!
THEREPY for victims,yes.EDUCATION and RESTITUTION for peretrators.No prison,just these.Only force used is if they refuse to learn,and make it right.tHEY MUST sumit to education of why it is wrong,and working until it is made right.No one is exempt,ever.This is MERCY and JUSTICE combined.
right on KK, only through the "eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" philosophy will anyone who needs or deserves justice for what they have done to them or have done,ever have resolution,,,through rehabilitation,education and finally acceptance,almost like the 12 stages of grief,or the 12 step rehab,which only works for some..I hear AA has the worst success rates.
Well, are we talking personal justice or our justice system.
I think on the level of personal justice that it holds its own meaning for each person. To me, it is to live life where you give and get respect, you live and let live in your own way. That you are whole by the definition of what that means to you. You don't cheat and you don't get cheated. You live honorably and are not dishonered. You do not abuse and are not abused.
and so on...
If any of that makes sense at all
