The Legal System

My basic understanding of the criminal system in the United States is as follows:
A person is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

I learned that from watching the syndicated tv show Cops for many years.

I've also learned that just because a person was proven guilty in a court of law it doesn't necessarily mean that they are actually guilty of the crime. There have been several wrongful convictions.

So now that animal rights activists are protesting Michael Vick and encouraging the Atlanta Falcon's opposing defenses' to "Sack Vick" I must ask the question:

Is a person really innocent until proven guilty in a court of law?

These activists serve a legitimate purpose but Vick is yet to be convicted of anything.

These people are attacking Vick not necessarily to condemn his alleged actions but to promote their own agenda.

Word up man. This is true indeed. Guilty until proven innocent. Damn those PETA radicals (see terrorist on wikipedia).
