In particularly due to the media, we often forget this rule. With the way society deals with criminal injustice today, our media often rules a verdict before the justice system has. Whether through ignorance or not, many people pick up the morning paper, or scroll through their twitter news feed, their minds soaking up the information being fed to them, without stopping to question what they are being told. They read of a person being held trial for murder? Their thoughts are of HOW they WILL be punished, not IF they SHOULD be punished.
