This is presented in the novel when it is revealed that although Mr. Freeman is convicted and sentenced to a year and a day, he is released without having yet served his time. Maya 's uncles don 't agree to that and feel he deserves something more severe so they assault and murder him. Since they believe that death is the appropriate reaction to his crime, that act is their form of justice for Maya. Unlike the previous method of getting Justice which aligns with both ethics and morals, in this case, there is a dissonance between the two. To Maya 's uncles their act of violence is moral because it is their own personal belief that a man who commits a crime, especially such as the one Mr. Freeman does, deserves more than jail time and especially more than freedom.

Revenge is most likely the most disputable human concept to exist. While many consider it a crime to seek vengeance, others view it as rightfully restoring justice.
