I am sorry not being able to answere this question because I am not an American and couldn't possilbe reply intelligently
Well, it truly depends on the situation. As a general answer though, in America, we go by "due process", which means that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. If a person is proven guilty, they are expected to pay for their crimes with their time, money or services. Which means that a person would spend time in jail, pay a fine or do community service.
That's a pretty wide open explanation though. I would say that most American's feel that fair justice is when reparations for a crime are equal to the crime. Meaning that if you commit a crime, you are expected to clean up your mess, pay for what you broke, give back to a family you victimized or to serve jail time in an equal amount to the crime you committed.
I know this is a confusing answer. Does it help? lol

Should there not be some sort of action by our justice department against the New Black Panthers and Spike Lee for fomenting vigilante justice? This is a crime after all to conspire someones death.I agree action is slow on the other side of this issue but this sort of response is reprehensible.
