Injustice

(Redirected from Unfair punishment)

Injustice is a quality relating to unfairness or undeserved outcomes. The term may be applied in reference to a particular event or situation, or to a larger status quo. In Western philosophy and jurisprudence, injustice is very commonly, but not always, defined as either the absence or the opposite of justice.

Unfair punishmentEdit

Punishment can be considered injust or unfair when the delinquent is either innocent or not fully guilty, or when the punishment is unproportionally severe for the offense, the person punished, and the circumstances.

Unfair absence of punishmentEdit

The absence of appropriate punishment can also be considered injust or unfair, e.g. when an offender remains unpunished although their guilt is proven.
