Pretty simple, right? Most of us see the First Amendment as a wonderful thing. Dianne Feinstein sees it as a challenge.
We have a beautiful thing included in our constitution for those accused of a crime. You see, our constitution dictates that when you are accused of a crime, you are considered innocent until you are proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law. Even when there is overwhelming evidence that the accused is indeed guilty, such as with the Aurora shooter, they are still to be considered innocent until the completion of the trial. George Zimmerman wasn’t that lucky though. Even though our constitution makes him innocent until the completion of the trail, everybody seems to have forgotten about those rights.
