n. Justice is a possibility which many people commonly refer to as God, fate, or karma. Some may call it a delusion, but belief in the possibility of a justice-to-come is perhaps one of the most powerful driving forces in the world: there is hope for justice for our opinions, for ourselves, for our children, for our family and friends, for our people, for our nation, for our social class, for our species, for our fellow animals, even for our planet. Simply put, justice is what makes us human, and the pursuit of justice is what makes us good (or deluded; see the other definitions).
We fight for justice before the law.

French electronic duo, the next daft punk. Mainly known for the song "D.A.N.C.E." on their debut album, Cross. Incredible talent and a unique sound, two great performers. One of the guys, Gaspard, tends to not do much except smoke marb lights and pass joints on stage, while the other, Xavier, is always runnin' shit. If you ever see them live you will understand.

Something only people who can afford it ever get. This generally involves lawyers in court playing word games and generally twisting everything the accused/victim/witness says. That's assuming the case even reaches court. Thanks to the Con party, the UK legal system is burdened down by the CPS (that's Criminal Protection Service) who tie the police up with red tape, give them countless pointless forms to fill in and generally make sure as few cases as possible reach court.
