FAIRNESS means treating people equitably, without bias or partiality. It means actively working to set aside self-interest or group loyalty when rendering a judgment. In day to day life, fairness manifests itself in simple ways such as taking turns, listening intently, sharing and not taking advantage of others based on their weaknesses.



Susan, Inspector Haynes and I were discussing the oath that policemen swear when they join the force.

I was interested in the difference between fairness and impartiality…both words appear in the oath.
