Justice sentenced to death. Even with this

Published by admin on

Justice versus injustice, a battle fought since the time of man. Dickens’ most
valuable message in A Tale of Two Cities is that justice will always triumph
over injustice. Justice and injustice play a big part in the book. In Darnay’s
many trials he has each time gotten away from his prosecutors because of help
from friends and family. In his first trial his uncle, the Marquis, tries to
imprison him for treason, but with the help of Carton he is let free. The second
trial was a bit more complex, he is captured by the DeFarges, who don’t plan on
giving him a fair trial. They wanted to do him a great injustice by putting him
to death for a law they had made up. The persuasive Dr. Menette reasoned with
the jury, so that they would let him off. Of course it is not always this easy.

It was very rare in those days that someone would be let off. The jury never
usually took more than a few seconds to decide if the accused shall be put to
death or not. Jail was no longer a matter after the revolution. The guillotine
was saving them a great deal of time. People went to jail for only a little
while, the trial was short and death even shorter. The third trial of Darnay not
filled with much justice. He was released from jail and not long after, he got
picked up again and back to jail he went, where this trial went quickly and he
was sentenced to death. Even with this injustice that was given to Darnay, an
even stronger justice was handed to him by a friend. Sydney Carton literally
gave him life. The day before Charles was to be sent to the guillotine Sydney
exchanged places with him, since they looked so much alike nobody could tell the
difference. I don’t think his messages apply much in today’s world. In today’s
society things like that are not done. Cases could take years just to get to the
court and the trial could even last years. People today get away with murder,
robberies, and other federal offences. You can’t always have justice, it won’t
always triumph over injustice. A person can’t possibly think it is right when a
young child gets murdered and the killer can’t be convicted. But things like
those happen in the world we live in today.
