America: The Law Remains Innocent Until Proven Guilty

flag.jpeg

In America, we live under the umbrella of a democracy where we are innocent until proven guilty and we have a right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. 

“Everyone charged with a penal offense has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defense.”

—Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 11

We can’t go around convicting people of crimes on the bases of race, sex, stereotypes, illegitimate data harvesting, public ignorance, jealousy, or convenience because it will help us get in or out of office or keep us safe and secure in our inner circles. We also can’t go around treating real violations and occurrences as if they are some kind of hoax. We agreed a long time ago that the law of the bible is not sufficient to govern any country, and that is why we came up with a separate set of laws. These laws are influenced by a faith that lets us worship under the denominations that we choose.

I repeat: It is by faith that we all agree to worship as we choose.

Our initial intent should be to bring things to trial, and not to bypass the trial so we can unfairly convict people. Unfortunately, there are times where a fair trial can no longer be rendered. This one part of the Constitution (“at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defense.”) is where we have repeatedly failed women, children, special-needs people, and minorities. We cut wealthy and privileged people slack, while trying to throw the book at poor, innocent people.

This has to change now because of programs like SOD, which, in my opinion, should be disavowed until we have a technological constitution securely in place.

Here are some videos worth watching. Click here to see one that explains why data should not be used in place of common sense, reasonable laws, and decency. Watch the entire video.

It is important to note that religion is not the issue, but instead that our foundations are crumbling under the weight of blatant disregard for the value of human life in general.

Life is our greatest resource.

Please understand that when I share race-related information, it is to help all races grow in knowledge so we can lessen the harsh judgement that we have towards each other.

Thank you for reading and keep on growing.
