Jumping To Conclusions

On Behalf of | Sep 14, 2017 | Uncategorized

We have all seen the lurid headlines and pictures, mug shots of people in jail jumpsuits, accusations of heinous crimes. It is easy to assume that anyone accused of such bad things must be guilty. But, it is easy to accuse, all a criminal charge means is that a prosecutor believes someone is guilty of a crime. No judge has made any decision, and no impartial party has looked at the evidence. Prosecutors, being human, can be wrong, and can be subject to political pressure to make accusations against someone. There are many examples of big headlines when someone is charged with a crime, and little or no attention when the charges are dismissed or they are found not guilty. We owe it to our fellow citizens to not judge unless we have seen all the evidence and understand all the sides of a case. The next person in the jumpsuit could be you.
