Even Roy Moore Is Innocent Until Proven Guilty

I don’t know if Roy Moore is guilty of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl years ago. I don’t know if any of the men who have recently been accused of rape, harassment, assault, or molestation are guilty, except for those who have admitted it, of course. For some, the evidence is stacked pretty high, but I still don’t know if they’re guilty, and neither do you.
My purpose here is not to defend predators or to pretend like men aren’t capable of great evil. They are. As are women. But in this Salem-like witch hunt of sexual abusers, we are losing sight of a core principle that sets America apart from barbaric nations: Each one of us is innocent until proven guilty.
While I want to hold all people to account for their crimes, I do not want to become so blinded by my own fear and lust for vengeance that I stop seeing the humanity in others and the rights they have as citizens of this great nation. To allow accusation, allegation, rumor, and innuendo to rip people from their jobs and drive them from the circles of respectable society is to allow for mobs to rule with torches and pitchforks.
