Yeah, That’s what we’ve come to. You have to prove your innocence now. The burden is no longer on the government to prove your guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt, that’s how it used to be. If you are even hinted at being involved in a crime now you’ll be tried, sentenced and executed by the court of public opinion long before you see your day in court. There won’t be an impartial jury thanks to social media, you’re already guilty. So why even have a trial when we can just consult a handy FB/Twitter poll and save the taxpayer a little money.
This little rant was brought to you by this news story. The part that really grabbed me was this:
“We are always willing to listen and examine new information, and that’s exactly what we did in this case,” Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza said.
Wow, how ow about evidence that the guy actually committed the crime without him having to prove his innocence which is the part I don’t get about this. Innocent until proven guilty has turned into guilty until proven innocent.
Good luck in the future to this guy and I hope he gets in to the military.
Thank God for selfies, huh?
