Law decides punishments according to your satuts in society.. do you agree?

i think its true law decides punishments according to your financial status in your society.you can take as the matter of Sanjay dutt's case in TADA court since so many days on the 1993 bomb blast. he is been given bail everytime you can see but the convicts which were along with him are already in jail and are not given bail even once. this is truely a injustice. we all depend on law today and if law starts taking into a misbehaviour then where will we go?

if i may suggest , if you can't live with your government then try to move to a place where you can be at peace.it's the same principle most prophets have been preaching.because if one is stisfied and content the more he is pe=roductive in life.it is not always that we have to fight, there is always another way.and it is not un-patriotic if you live your country.

am sorry.. but I am against your statement.. its un-patriotic.. if everyone thinks thing and doesnt fight against it.. its not going improve country... when you got problem in your family you have to sole it.. your country is your family your home, and its you who has to solve the problem and runnign from it will just not help, instead it will make worst for your country brothers and sisters.

i'm not sure which country your in but in the us, the law doesn't punish based on financial status. That said, it's very important to have money to be able to hire a quality lawyer which will probably save you from going to jail. but the law, itself, doesn't base its punishment on whether or not the defendant is rich or poor.

well, its bad.. but personally I dont feel thats happening.. Sanjay Dutt is gettign bail all the time right now is just because there are lots of dependecies on Sanjay Dutt.. lots of money on Sanjay Dutt from the film industry.. so giving bail to him is justified, but if Sanjay Dutt doesnt get any jail or whatever at end.. but others who are facing same charges as Sanjay Dutt or similar and they have got jail or whatever.. then its based on society status and its tollerable, but then yeah its ofcourse based on behaviour and past records, but court is doing good and I am sure our court is not like our government or politicians.

I think that every one should be equal before the law. This should be so because if you have people like poor people, who might not have enough to afford an attorney, wouldn't get one because of their financial status and thus would do horrilbly in court and just lose more of the stuff they could have tried to be getting. Also, if society was run like that, then the lower class people would rebel, and possibly fight for better rights, literally. In Rome, the slaves didn't get to do anything and then they rebelled against the Republic because they were not treated as equals as human beings. I think that they would have a right to. Also, if society ran like that, then all of the wealthy people could easily, without hard work at all, bribe the political system making it corrupt. When this happens, the political things will crash and burn because no one will agree with laws and if there would be no laws, then no society could exist. Plus, people in the U.S. and I'm pretty sure everywhere around the world would get mad because of prejudice. They would not let someone, who was just born in a higher class than them, be able to win the politics over. This would just make the politics completely corrupt and out of order. The whole world would literally fall apart, and the people on the earth would not exist anymore. Pretty drastic considering all people had to do was make them all equal before the law. That is my theory and standpoint on the issue.
