Should our legal system be defined by phiosophical justice or moral justice?

Background and context

The idea behind this is debate is simple. In our society, we mostly base what we believe is just by what we can accomplish. The question we are burdened with is this. Is that morally just?--Kantian rasmus 16:31, 13 November 2007 (CST)

Yes

Justice is blind to all differences in society, therefore, simple matters of practicality should not be considered when defining justice. Justice is complete and covers every crime of every criminal. Simply going by what is practical leads to the opportunity for our system to degenerate into a system where the ends will justify the means. According to Kant, this is immoral and unjust.

No

The justice that our system employs should be centered around what is practical, efficient, economical and what is able to be attained to. A philosophy of complete justice can never be reached in our society. Therefore, in order to obtain justice at all, we have to acknowledge that we must use practical justice as opposed to philosophical justice.
