innocent until proven guilty in the eyes of the law.
this is why the law is supposed to be enforced and adjudicated by non partisan persons.
the enforcement and judicial system should have no business with party affiliations or obvious biases.
This is because the public is not trained and educated to be objective and fact based s the people in the enforcement and judicial system are supposed to be.
What we find though are too many instances of enforcement officers tampering with evidence, not collecting evidence correctly, lawyers and judges with plain political affiliations and financial relationships.
There is a reason recusement is an option for the objective and so called "ethical" judge and jurist.
if the guy was found guilty in a court of law and that court was not tainted, then the guy is a slug. Which is what the most reporting shows.
If folks want to defend a slug in order to defend their political and idealistic leanings, it just goes to show what is more important, the truth or the appearance of being right.
