Are you serious?

A newspaper filed charges and you don't know if he should be jailed or not.

By asking the question it appears that you believe he should be.

"A lawyer for Jackson, Joseph E. Byrne, on Wednesday urged that people withhold judgment about the case until all the evidence was presented and took issue with the grievance filed against his client by the Innocence Project, a legal advocacy group.

I disagree with much of the information that was put together by the Innocence Project and do not find it to be objective, Byrne said.


So now our legal system should jail a person every time some charges have been filed against them BEFORE any investigation takes place.


To even ASK the question shows a total ignorance of our judicial system.
