Perhaps you could point me to the list of appropriate ‘innocent until proven guilty’ applications so in the future, I won't demonstrate such a major lack of understanding of the ‘fundamentals’ of our moral AND legal system. Not that you care because you obviously have a far superior grasp on the subject than I, but according to her presser today, what she alleges Cain did is ASSAULT and believe it or not, that is a LEGAL issue. Honestly, are you always so condescending?

If the the matter is CRIMINAL then the standard the GOVERNMENT must use is “innocent until proven guilty”, but even then, when there is enough credible evidence the accused is detained in jail prior to the verdict. Citizens are free to treat the person as if they are guilty, but need to be careful about defamation.

If the matter is not criminal, then “guilt” is not even at issue so that standard should not be mentioned.

Unfortunately, people like make the error frequently, as you did. Why are you so defensive? You are wrong and I pointed it out to you. You should be thanking me and apologizing for your mistake.
