    I don’t disagree with you. However, that being said, there’s more than one kind of innocent. Innocence under the law (in capital cases) requires ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ which puts the burden of proof on the prosecution. This was done to better insure justice was carried out properly. However, simply because a prosecutor can’t prove something happened, doesn’t mean that it didn’t or that the defendant didn’t commit the crime… It only means the prosecution couldn’t meet the burden of proof.

    In America a person is innocent until proven guilty. You could move to France where the rules are reversed. Anyone can make up stories about someone. What you must have is variable under oath testamony and proof. There are documented studies that prove that some psychologists plant in children’s minds (who have histories of abuse) that a certain someone did abuse them when, in fact, the abuse never occurred by that person. But the clinician needs to blame someone and so he or she does. This,of course, can ruin an innocent person’s life! Think about it – what if you were falsely accused?
