Roy Moore and his personal belief systems are what is wrong with the entire justice system. "Blind Justice" is a crock of shit when you have such corrupt and one sided people within the system. You cant have a blind justice system when you have people that are suppose to interpret laws based on fact rather than interjecting their feelings or emotions. If you have ever been in front of a judge or even a court clerk, you will notice they usually have no expression, stone faced. (Im not talking about judge TV shows like Judge Judy for entertainment purpose)
I as go thru my own personal struggles with this system, obviously "its rigged". We just have to understand the 'who' is behind this rig and of course 'why'. If justice is supposed to be blind, then why do so many find themselves 'victims' of bias within this system? Those within this system who have chosen to ignore, blind justice, and its founding principles are indeed evil beings. If a persons moral bias character is already sketchy before they enter this system as a 'law interpreter', if you do probability, the outcome of that interpretation will also be bias or sketchy.
I can apply this same theory to my own work in problem solving in manufacturing, through what's known as Six Sigma. In my line of work, we have an old saying, "garbage in, garbage out". Meaning if you have garbage data going into the system of measurement, you probably will have garbage data coming out as results. You have to start with "good hearted people" to begin with, before becoming a judge or arbitrator within our current system, there should be a litmus test on whether or not the person actually will abide by the blind justice principles. THAT is the true nature of "morality and fairness". Roy Moore was the 'garbage' that entered the system, therefore his interpretations are 'garbage' coming out of the system.
Iustitia, Justitia or Lady Justice (Latin: Iustitia, the Roman goddess of Justice
, who is equivalent to the Greek goddess Themis) is an allegorical personification of the moral force in judicial systems
. Her attributes are a blindfold, a balance and a sword. She often appears as a pair with Prudentia, who holds a mirror and a snake
The personification of justice balancing the scales dates back to the Goddess Maat, and later Isis, of ancient Egypt. The Hellenic deities Themis and Dike were later goddesses of justice. Themis was the embodiment of divine order, law, and custom, in her aspect as the personification of the divine rightness of law. However, a more direct connection is to Themis' daughter Dike, who was portrayed carrying scales.
"If some god had been holding level the balance of goddess which is Dike" is a surviving fragment of Bacchylides' poetry. Ancient Rome adopted the image of a female goddess of justice, which it called Iustitia. Since Roman times, Iustitia has frequently been depicted carrying scales and a sword, and wearing a blindfold. Her modern iconography frequently adorns courthouses and courtrooms, and conflates the attributes of several goddesses who embodied Right Rule for Greeks and Romans, blending Roman blindfolded Fortuna (fate) with Hellenistic Greek Tyche (luck), and sword-carrying Nemesis (retribution).
Lady Justice is most often depicted with a set of scales typically suspended from her left hand, upon which she measures the strengths of a case's support and opposition. She is also often seen carrying a double-edged sword in her right hand, symbolizing the power of Reason and Justice, which may be wielded either for or against any partySince the 15th century, Lady Justice has often been depicted wearing a blindfold. The blindfold represents objectivity, in that justice is or should be meted out objectively, without fear or favour, regardless of money, wealth, fame, power, or identity; blind justice and impartiality.
The earliest Roman coins depicted Justitia with the sword in one hand and the scale in the other, but with her eyes uncovered. Justitia was only commonly represented as "blind" since about the end of the 15th century. The first known representation of blind Justice is Hans Gieng's 1543 statue on the Gerechtigkeitsbrunnen (Fountain of Justice) in Berne
