Since it's a cop, he's guilty until proven innocent.
It IS different for private citizens than for people who are required to be in vehicles for long periods of time.
I don't even particularly say his being a cop had anything to do with it. Cops are humans..and there are just under a million Police Officers in our nation. Among that population will be everything from Saints to Psychos...altho we hope far less of the latter than general population for all the screening, of course. That many people in any group will get all kinds..and I DO wonder what kind this guy is on or off duty.
Secondly, if you have ever unexpectedly driven over something substantial in size, the car jumps, which means the accelerator is going to come up against your foot due to inertia, and you're going to get a surge of power before you can react an remove your foot.
Everyone gets the presumption
That doesn't mean our opinions have to presume that, and mine sure won't by what I see with my eyes here...but his status and official investigation where his future is decided absolutely must start from innocence to prove guilt
As long as we'd never actually carry our blog persona into a court room if we DID have Jury duty, right? That's the trick I think.
