Trump is right about innocent until proven guilty in abuse cases

President Donald Trump came under fire this past weekend simply by pointing out the fundamental right of all Americans to be considered innocent until proven guilty (“As domestic abuse claims roil White House, Trump says lives are being ruined ‘by a mere allegation,’” Feb. 10).

As a people Americans seem to love the dirt, smut, gossip and trash that the media puts out about our society. Why? Because it takes our minds off our own problems. Judgmental folks seem to abound, encouraging each other and egging each other on.

This is a direct clash between our legal system and the judgmental folks. Those who are “holier than thou” make accusations against others, some true, some not. The problem is that when true, the accusations stick and the guilty pay the price for their indiscretion but, unfortunately, the same is true for the innocent.

Is this fair? Is it noble? This truth is all that our president was trying to point out, and God Bless him for doing so. In the recent past, we have had presidents who have rushed to judgment of those who were simply accused. This president has not done so, thank God, and America should love him for that.
