Justice Beyond Criminal Justice

The failure so far to prosecute regarding the death of Freddie Gray does not mean "no justice" is possible. Justice does involve prosecutions (and how we do them), but in a big picture way, that might be the lesser approach. Prosecution is a last resort with a high bar while there are various other things to do, including civil remedies, political responsibility (see, e.g., 2006 and 2008) and changing policies. See., e.g, racial equality after Brown.

And Also: The contraceptive rule is a compromise.
