Innocent Until Proven Guilty
    #1186121 - 01/02/03 11:54 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

If this is the case then why are people arrested and sent to jail before they are determined to be guilty of commiting a crime?

That's a weak example but I'm sure some of you understand what I am talking about.

If you ask me they should just tell the truth and make it "Guilty until proven Innocent"

When arrested and charged that's the way the allegation is made against someone. It is up to the prosecutor to prove the guilt of the defendant. The defendant gets to be judged by a jury 12 random registered voters. Often these juries rubber stamp what the prosecutor says and think along the lines of "He's in court and there's some circumstancial evidence so he's guilty." This is especially the case with black defendants in drug cases. The best trial lawyers do create an alternative theory to the prosecutors besides rippin up the prosecutors theory. They also charge the biggest $$$.

The judicial system is fucked. Burn it, it's a witch!

I'll try to think of a better example so you'll get a clearer picture of what I'm saying.

Since wood burns and floats then it can be assured she is a witch.

I think I understand what you're trying to convey... you're saying the phrase is sort of Orwellian Doublespeak?


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

There's a difference between jail and prison. Jail is where they take you when you're arrested so they can charge you with a crime and get your fingerprints. Prison is where they take you after you've been convicted.

A county jail is used for both.
