But legal judgments rarely happen with perfect knowledge and absolute certainty. In their place, we rely on presumptions and standards that guide our thinking and discipline our judgments. In general, we presume innocence. But when we know that a killing has occurred and can definitively identify who committed the act, traditional common law demanded that our presumptions shift. We are supposed to presume guilt, and it is the shooter who must prove that his actions were justified.
Apparently the liberal fascists at TNR have done away with the presumption of innocence.
Well, not much of a surprise there, I guess. It gets in the way of what the scapegoating witch-hunt they really want to run here.
