Justice and Judgment Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

Roy: You want to be Nice, or you want to be Effective? Make the law, or subject to it. (3.5.19)

To Roy, the law is not the end-all, be-all of justice. It's up to each individual to create his own justice. Though the things Roy has done have been pretty darn sketchy, could he be right in theory? Can you think of any examples from American history of someone who had to break the law in order to achieve justice?
