Daily Times Claims Pollitt Used Executive Order To Refrain From Delivering Mug Shots To Newspaper
I think most of you know I'm no big fan of Rick Pollitt as a politician. As a person, what's not to like.
However, for my own personal reasons I have to side with Mr. Pollitt on this one and here's why.
You are innocent until proven guilty. Being arrested and charged with something does NOT mean you are guilty and I have personally proven that each and every time charges were brought against me.
They finger print you as an innocent person, take pictures of you and create a forever file against you, even if your completely innocent.
I can't tell you how many times over the years I have received phone calls from people charged with a DUI or DWI and they had all charges dropped. They ask for me to remove their information so they can move on with their life, yet the harm is already done.
Our legislators need to change the process and ONLY put out a press release AFTER a Judge and or Jury has convicted an individual. Until then, remember, this is America. Each person is innocent until proven guilty.
