What is the difference between justice and vengeance? Is justice vengeance? Is vengeance unjust justice?

Huh.

I'd say that vengeance is focused on making other people suffer for a perceived wrong, whereas justice is about using a legal system of some sort to judge whether or not someone was wronged and what the appropriate method of recompense is, if there is a wrong.

But this is just an offhand assessment, and I think that it gets a lot fuzzier than that.

I agree with your assessment. This could, if one was in the mood, spiral off into an abstract debate.
