    that because there is some uncertainty caused by the Defense this guy is automatically innocent. This talking point is BS.

      I quote myself:

      I acknowledge that it's still possible Davis is guilty. But it seems unlikely, and even if you're not categorically opposed to the death penalty as I am, you'd have to be a monster to be ok with killing someone who is probably innocent.

      That's in the first comment. If you want to come at me with "talking points," you're going to have to do a hell of a lot better than that.

      I don't think "this guy is automatically innocent." I was responding to your comment about "convicted murderers", plural, which I took to then be a more general statement and not about this case in particular. On re-reading it, I think I read you wrong. I think you mean "convicted murderers, a category to which this guy belongs."

      But you are still missing the key point, which is that the uncertainty in this case not only casts doubt on whether Davis is guilty. It also implies that there is another man out there, the real killer, who has not been punished for murder.

      Forgetting justice, you have substituted revenge in its place, and you then are pleased to call this sympathy with the relatives of the victims. That is why you are a fool.
