Troll BS: Plame Sues Cheney/Rove! (67* d) RE: BS: Plame Sues Cheney/Rove! 15 Jul 06

It's probably a good thing for our Judicial system that the members of the Mudcat Forum are not in charge of it.

Reading this thread makes it clear that Cheney and Co. have already been tried and convicted in the minds of a majority of the posters, based on media reports and their own prejudices.

What ever happened to the presumption of innocence until proven guilty in a COURT OF LAW?

I am ashamed of the lot of you. Such shallowness does you no credit.

You may hate Bush, Cheney, Rove, and anyone else you choose but they are still entitled to equal protection under the law, Just like you are.

If they are found guilty, they should be punished according to the pertinent statutes, but until such time they MUST be presumed to be innocent.

While you are all entitled to express your opinion, to act as though the guilt of Cheney et al is a foregone conclusion smacks of pettiness and a childish assumption that your opinion should be the final arbiter.

I am sure that this will cause some comment, so let me repeat what I've said before.

I have very little use for politicians in general and the Bush Administration in particular, but it is central to our system of law that a man is innocent until proven guilty.
