I thought that we lived in a country where you are innocent until proven guilty
and that these institutions of higher learning where the ones to lead in being
examples of constitutional values.Guess I was wrong...
Yet another example of the outcome of a person begin tried and convicted through
the media.What makes America great is that every person has the
right to a fair trial, and is presumed innocent until proven guilty.Guilty until proven innocent is the new "political correctness"
standard.What is next?Is America losing its greatness?
Innocent until proven guilty is an assumption of courts of law and is the
standard by which legal proceedings are conducted. The University of Florida
may have already weighed the evidence and determined that he is guilty of the
crime, regardless of the outcome of a jury trial. They are free to do that,
although they must live with the consequences if further evidence is uncovered
that demonstrates his innocence.
@WRK,If he killed someone he is guilty. Do you not understand that?
Guilty today. Guilty yesterday. Guilty tomorrow. If he killed someone he is
guilty. Whatever instructions are applied within the judicial
process don't affect the outside world. Based on your logic if
a thousand people saw someone commit a crime, and that person even admitted
committing the crime, the entire world should consider that person innocent
until its declared formally in a court of law?No.If
someone commits a crime, they are guilty.And I'm glad Florida
immediately scrubbed the image of a guilty person from their campus
Why would U of F do this? Just to distance themselves from this man? He
wasn't a murderer in college (as far as we know), so what does his college
football career at Florida have to do with anything? What's next...does
the hospital he was born at tear up his birth certificate?
Looks like the numbers from the comments so far show that 4 out of 5 people
still believe in innocent until proven guilty.
