Innocent Until Proven Guilty By A Jury Of Your Peers. @BlackAndBlondeM

Interactions yesterday with a Washington DC based political media hack who offered to do work for Donald Trump, @BlackandBlondM, reminded me of some basic precepts of the American system of justice.

In this country you are presumed innocent.

That is a basic jury instruction in most jurisdictions and we are taught that guilt must be established beyond a reasonable doubt in a jury before our peers.

If there is any doubt, the person is to be found not guilty.

I don’t call people criminals before they receive a trial.

This account is intimidating women, and acting in a most egregious manner in intimidating people who might be voters on Twitter.

I inquired of the account as to any necessary disclosures without response.

I have also enquired of Twitter as to their policy.
