    Presumption of innocence is a court standard. Businesses and people dont have to assume the innocence of anyone.

    I agree. And I'm of the school of thought where one gives the benefit of the doubt. Worst case, give a second chance. Trust me, you burn me enough, or hard enough the first time, I'm done with you.

    And I am of the belief that if one of my players is being investigated for something major like beating his wife/girlfriend they will sit until they clear their name if it seems plausible they did it. Working for me is not a right it is a privilege.

    Wrong. Don't label them guilty until it's proven, but they sure as anything are assumed to be guilty or they wouldn't have been charged in the first place. And Brent you're taking but a small fraction of cases and illogically extrapolating their circumstances to the whole.

    Couldn't decide between here or the conspiracy thread:

    Alex Jones being sued by Sandy Hook families for defamation. Looks like he'll have to find some even spicier chili to blame to try to get out of this one.

    It will be funny when he defends himself by saying he's obviously doing a (protected) political satire of the kind of moron who believes that sort of thing -- i.e., his viewers.

    Yes, it will be. And his morons would say "yeah, you tell them, Alex," without having a clue about what it says about them.

    Alex is probably just fine with this, knowing the increase in sales of his magical potions will more than offset the cost of litigation.

    Doesnt he technically brand himself as entertainment? If so he has almost no shot of losing the case.

    Glenn Beck was an actual stand-up comedian and his viewers still never got that the joke was on them.

    But I don't know whether Jones went 'round the bend and forgot the 4th.

    If it even gets that far. He's received several suits in the past few months, and they're all to elicit the response you're giving right now, as well as force him to spend money on defense costs, which is why he has stated that he is filing SLAPP counter-suits in some cases on account of Texas's state law.

    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Edit: LOL, she's Muslim, too.
