The truth is, "the obvious or accepted fact" as defined by Webster. Truthfulness is essential to human survival. To best understand the effects of truth on a society, we learn there are two kinds.

Justice is a matter of how individuals and / or groups are treated and the insistence for all to be treated fairly when rules have been broken. Impartial and consistent application of the rules is required.

The agency may have the final say or there may be avenues to an appeal.
