As you say taking a stand either way makes little sense. Please do not assume you know what I would like. I have no feelings in this case as to the guilt or innocence of any party.
I contest it is irresponsible to publicly state otherwise as the only information now flowing is from one side of the fence, the side we almost unanimously here at the DP believe to be corrupt and unreliable at best.
You say it is ok to form opinions. That same thought process would disqualify you to serve on a jury in this or any case.
Our precious and threatened system of justice relies on the wisdom of 12 common persons selected as peers of the accused with the opportunity to deliberate freely, with direct access to all the evidence and instruction on the law. Your emotion threatens that. Your opinions are that of the tyranny of the mob that humans have been trying to rise above through ancient Greece, to the Magna Carta, and to our most sublime document to date, the US Constitution.
Do not allow popular thought or those around you to make you ignorant of the sacrifices humans have made throughout history to get here and how easy it is to let it slip from our grasp manipulated by those that seek to control us by having us work against our own interest.
“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.
