Lets start with an example for context.

Party A says she was raped and she accuses party B.
Party B denies the claims.

In this simple case i have the view that Party B should be believed and Party A should not, In order to preserve a fair trail for Party B and Party A. If we believe Party A, Party B does not have a fair trail.

Hello.

Acceptance not belief.

The accusation must be accepted at face value and the accused person's response must be accepted in exactly the same way.

The burden of proof must also be equal.

Belief is an assumption that is made without evidence. No fair legal system behaves in this way.

Therefore I am neither Pro nor Con regarding the proposition.

What I am suggesting is that Con's use of the word belief, Sets an untenable premise.
