This thus leads to a lot of confusion because the common man needs and craves for justice for many wrongdoings. People are taken for a ride with promises of justice. Years of running behind lawyers and courts to find justice.  So that is how laws are made and rules and regulations are put in place, for people to understand what justice is all about.
