    I wasn't exact in the phrasing of my question. I meant to imply that those in a position of authority over the outcome of a verdict shouldn't proclaim guilt or innocence prior to an appropriate finding of such.

    President Obama is in the line of authority in this matter and his words have the grand potential of having an impact on the outcome.

    While not as powerful as a prospective juror say, "Yep, he's guilty" and this individual not being struck for cause, or the 'trial' judge or even the Chief Judge of whatever entity is in charge weighing in on the issue of guilt, it is so potentially influential, in my view, to be at a minimum, inappropriate.

    Roman Catholic by birth---thoroughly confused by life.
