Below is an essay on "Justice" from Anti Essays, your source for research papers, essays, and term paper examples.

There has been a case going on about a family that found ten gold coins in a family safe deposit box. The family contacted the government about them to see if the were legitimate and the government took them and started this lawsuit. The government said that these coins were among 445500 that the mint made and had not released because gold coins were outlawed. The lawsuit is saying that the gold coins are still possession of the government and the 10 coins were somehow slipped out and should be returned.
As I was reading this article and trying to decide if what the government was doing just or un-just I came to a conclusion that it was unjust. The government has no proof and cant prove that they stole the coins from the mint. Also the owners of the coins just found them in a safe deposit box and were trying to get them checked out to see if they were real or not and the government just takes them. It has to be unjust to take someone’s property and say it is yours and start a lawsuit over it. The family that was once in possession of these very valuable coins recognized the injustice in this situation and has file to sue them to reclaim the coins. This lawsuit is going against the fourth amendment saying that you can’t invade on someone private property. The government can argue that it was stolen or never anyone else’s property but they would have to wait till trial to take the coins not hold the coins hostage and just claim them as theirs.
