Justice VS Injustice

One can only sleep at night knowing that he is in a safe place. People need to have a freedom from apprehension and anxiety. Security is a very important aspect of every person’s life. It is mostly a superstition since security does not exist in nature. The US government should do everything it can to provide security for the people living in the US. The second thing that is as important as security is justice. According to Pope Pius XII, just as, in fact, there can be no peace without order so there can be no order without justice. A commonly accepted definition of Justice is that it is a moral standard of all men to one another requiring them to perform their social and moral as well as legal obligations to each other and to grant to each other all that fairly be granted. The United Stated Department of Justice has a mission “to enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; to provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.” As Martin Luther King said: “ Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Justice is important for society because it gives a sense of security. It makes people believe and trust in government.
There are approximately 16,500 murders in the U.S. each year. Only 13% of the criminals get caught and punished for their crimes. Whether or not justice took place in Kathleen Durst’s case is a matter of time.
Kathleen Durst has been missing since January 31st,1982 from New York City.
The disappearance of a beautiful medical student is very mysterious. Kathleen Durst was a fourth-year student at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx when she was reported missing, just about four months from graduation.
Robert Durst, to whom she was married for nine years, is a wealthy real estate heir.
When Kathleen first vanished, her husband told the police he last spoke to his wife by phone while she was in Manhattan and he was in the family cottage in the Westchester town of South Salem. He told police he last saw his wife at the Katonah train station, where she was planning to board a 9:15 p.m. train to Manhattan. On February 4, he received a call from the supervisor at her medical school saying that she had failed to show up for class all week. The supervisor said he had last heard from her on February 1, 1982 when she called to say she was ill and would not be attending classes that day. Durst reported his wife missing the next day. At the time, authorities placed Kathleen Durst's last movements in Manhattan, citing an elevator operator who said he saw her at the 37 Riverside Drive apartment the night of January 31, 1982. Investigators now believe that Kathy Durst may have never left South Salem, and that police may have been thrown off track by concentrating their efforts in the city. As a result, investigators never made a thorough search of the lakefront cottage, police said. A police snitch later told police that Kathleen had been killed in Westchester. In 2000 Divers searched the bottom of the lake near the family cottage, and examined a section of wall in the cottage.
Robert Durst allegedly abused his wife, and forced her to get an abortion year before her disappearance. Robert Durst has denied involvement in the disappearance of his wife.
Kathleen Durst’s case is not another story about a missing person. This story is about a millionaire who got away with a murder of his wife. More over when Police reopened the criminal investigation on December 24, 2000, Durst's long-time friend, Susan Berman, who was believed to have knowledge of McCormack's disappearance, was found murdered execution-style in her Benedict Canyon California house. Durst was questioned in both cases but not…
