Re: Bin Laden
OJ is innocent. The jury of his peers have spoken. The matter is finished.
It is of no consequence what you and I think. that book is closed. In
Scotland we have three verdicts Not Guilty, Guilty and not Proven. Our
system dictates that we presume everyone innocent until proven guilty. We
can not destroy our beliefs for a madman.
The imprisonment would be at the expense of the country that demanded the
trial. Murdering bin Laden would makes us as guilty as I believe he is. I
have not, however sat on a jury, I have not been privy to the facts. I must
presume him to be innocent.
Until we cure the root of the problem we will not end more Osama's. Blowing
away the cult in Waco did not end cults. The only cure for the ills of
free, open, democratic societies is more democracy.
