Presumption of Innocence Has Been Missing For Decades

In America, there is no longer such a thing as Presumption of Innocence. Any high-profile crime allegation is tried in the Media and whoever controls the power determines a person’s guilt or innocence – often determined according to political ideology.

In our brainwashed circumstances, we unwittingly go out of our way to make sure not everyone is afforded their inalienable rights or the rights under the law of this law. It amazes me how many work toward their own destruction.

Yesterday it came out that during the Obama administration, the Department of Justice removed around a half-million names from the National Criminal Background Check System (NICS). That, of course, sent the Left into another tailspin but not as severely as one might expect because it was a Leftist administration carrying out the act.

According to the information I have been gathering, it was determined by Obama’s DOJ that anyone on the NICS list who was a “Fugitive of Justice” and were determined to not have crossed any state lines to flee from justice were dropped from the list. This interpretation was upheld in court (not that that matters anymore).

The Fugitive Felon Act makes it a felony to be a Fugitive From Justice and cross a state line. Because only convicted felons can be a candidate for the NICS list, those not considered to be felons were rightfully removed from the list.

I might remind people that simply because you have been labeled a fugitive from justice does not necessarily make you a convicted felon and have certain of your rights denied you. Anyone who skips a court date appearance is considered a fugitive from justice. If a person skips a court date because he or she must answer to the failure of child support, for example, are they to be automatically made a felon (a dangerous one)?

We have become so programmed to react just as the programmers want us to react, it is scary. Due to our blinded anger and hatred of almost anything with political strings attached, we willingly and gleefully destroy what is left of our rights under the law.

Is there no end to this madness?

Protection of our rights is so fundamental and necessary for any thoughts of Life, Liberty, and Property, that sometimes the act of protection places us in odd and uncomfortable situations. That is why Presumption of Innocence is so vitally important. When that internationally recognized right is completely gone, your individuality and the rights that go with it, are also no longer a part of your existence.

For eight years I didn’t have a lot good to say about President Obama (not that I do about any of them) but perhaps this is one thing he did that was the right thing to do.
