In his unending effort to carry water for the lackluster Obama administration Oliver Willis shows he had no understanding of our legal system or history.
For the last time people, the foundations of our legal system are:
- accused people are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, and yes that includes people in the military for all you Bradley Manning haters out there.
- all people are entitled to due process of law, that includes people you don't like or who may or may not have committed unspeakable heinous crimes.
- torture and assassination are always wrong.
- it's better that many guilty go free rather than one innocent person be wrongly convicted and imprisoned.
