Innocent Until Proven Guilty
Innocent until proven guilty….this has been our country’s mantra every since I can remember that is until lately. In the past few years it has become guilty by mainstream media or by social media. They post things they have no proof on hoping that the gullible will believe it. When they post things like “an anonymous source”, “Appears to be”, “Probably”, etc, then they really do not have the proof or know for a fact.
And the sad thing to me is that our young people have not been taught that people are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. The number of different accusations I see on people in general on social media is astounding. I would hate to be accused of something and have to go to a jury trial because I do not believe many people should be put on a jury for they convict based on emotion and not facts.
People have been put in prison because the media printed articles that were not true. So many of the mainstream media have sold their souls to the devil because they would rather lie just to get rid of the person they do not like. I find that reprehensible. What has happened to truth and honesty and looking for real facts not what someone on the internet or in a news cast tells you what they believe is the truth.
I have seen families torn apart because social media judged them publicly when they were innocent and families split, spouses left and lives were destroyed. And even when the truth came out, the damage could not be mended.
I ask you all to pretend you are on a jury when you read all the garbage on the mainstream media and on social media and ask yourselves as you read “Do I see facts in here?” “Have they submitted evidence?” and try to decide for yourself if what you are being fed by the mainstream media or even by all the people on social media is the truth. Remember that one day this could be YOU on that side where you are being tried, convicted and sentenced for something you did not so and would you not want “Innocent until proven guilty” to prevail?
(PS…sorry for the absence. A lot of medical going on and seeing specialists because my primary asked me to in order to see if anything could help this extreme pain. And the answers were the same: no surgery because I could not make it through it and extreme damage. So, I have had to rest a lot because on top of it all I had a disc rupture. Thanks for caring and I am still fighting upward. 🙂
