Oh boy, hear we go. In defense of Blackleaf: Because ALL the facts of the case are not known, we cannot assume anything. I supposed he should have stopped there but then he goes on to say that we can't call the two men murderers because they have not been tried and found guilty of murder - yet! I think (and I may be wrong) that's what he's trying to say and I don't believe that's racist at all because he's right. Feel free to call them murderers but they're not "technically" murderers until found guilty of murder.
See Hoid - it all goes back to "definitions" and how people perceive the meanings. I understand what he's saying but perhaps he could have worded it differently. But to the thin skinned here, assumptions are clearly allowed no matter the facts.
Blackie is simultaneously arguing that the kid shot was a criminal (no trial was held, no evidence presented) and that the shooters are innocent because they have not yet been convicted. At best it makes him a hypocrite but given his other posts, he is a racist. A black is automatically a criminal in his eyes.
But yes, they are not guilty until they are convicted. The black kid also cannot be viewed as a criminal since he has not been convicted.
