I think justice from the Empire has nothing to do with murdering other Minmatar and leaving fabricated ‘evidence’ behind.
I think if the evidence is compelling enough, public outcry will force the hands of those above the corrupt officials. And if there isn’t anyone above them… then you’re not ‘carving out’ the rot with anything less than shooting the Tribal Chiefs in the head.
Funnily enough, that did happen to one of them. The one who wasn’t pushing for war, and who—a comfortable decade later—the leader of her killers is using as a fig leaf to hide behind, feigning respect and citing her goals to explain his own lack of any desire to deliver on what he promised. The same one vilified by the Shakorites and U’K. 1 ISK for Midular, right?
Funny, though, how ‘carving out the rot’ didn’t actually change any of the policies toward the Amarr. It didn’t do… anything, really, except to cement the power of the anti-Sebiestor coalition under Shakor, while fooling people into thinking the victims were some great existential threat.
It’s almost like that’s all it was ever intended to do.
