Not really. Riot has the final decision on permabans, sure. But generally if cases reach that point, the player is bad enough that they deserve it. And I'm pretty sure that a vast majority of people voting on those cases would agree as well (they did).
But part of the reason behind the Tribunal was to see what players would find to be acceptable behavior. Riot has stated several times now that they Tribunal is actually more lenient than they would be. But does that make the decision of the Tribunal wrong? Not at all.
The place this leniency is really going to manifest itself is in fringe cases. Things like 'gg noobs' and calling people 'bad' a few times per game. Both of these are things that Riot would frown upon. But they let the Tribunal decision stand at whatever the community decides for these sorts of cases.
If everybody voted based on how they thought the majority would vote, that just becomes an endless cycle. So you should vote how you, personally, feel for each given case. Not just what you think the group will vote.
Don't get me wrong. I enjoy the little game they gave us with the justice reviews and your personal rating and such. But my main point is that people shouldn't feel bad if their rating isn't super-high. It simply indicates that that person's views don't align as tightly with the group as a whole. And there's nothing wrong with that. Don't play the tribunal for the rating.
