Georgiansilver commented, in part:

Those who are guilty in our society now are those against whom enough evidence can be found....... if there is not enough evidence.. they walk free... no criminal record..... even for murder/acts of terrorism... etc.

What do you mean, "now"? That is the nature of the criminal justice system, and has been for hundreds of years. That's why we have trials, to see if there is enough evidence.

If we didn't hew to that standard, then any accusation, even without proof, would be enough to cause punishment.
