David Hume on the Zimmerman verdict

"A single act of justice is frequently contrary to public interest, and were it to stand alone, without being followed by other acts, may itself be very prejudicial to society... But, however single acts of justice may be contrary either to public or private interest, it is certain that the whole plan or scheme is highly conducive, or indeed absolutely requisite, Both to the support of society and the well-being of every individual." -- A Treatise on Human Nature
