62. You completely misunderstand the principle of "innocent till proved guilty."

See my post #59. I'll reiterate: it's an assumption binding to the criminal justice system, dictating the procedures it must follow. For the rest of us, it's a courtesy. The main problem with the public not following that courtesy is the influence it has on the jury and the harassment of the defendant. Those are moot here.

You're accusing the police of several gross felonies, federal offenses, without any evidence that a crime was even committed. Where is your courtesy of due process for them?

DNA evidence is conclusive. No courtesy of "innocent till proved guilty" is appropriate here. That's my last word, I'm done with this.
