    INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY…. THAT IS THE LAW LET'S NOT FORGET THAT. THERE WERE YOUNG GIRLS IN THERE THAT NIGHT JUST STAYING THE NIGHT AT THIER FATHER'S HOUSE AS THEY HAS NO ONE ELSE TO GO. YOU PRINT A LOT WITHOUT TRUELY CHECKING INTO EVERYTHING. AND I'LL AGAIN REMIND WHAT OUR JUSTICE LAWS SAY IS THAT WE ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY……

      The girls are not guilty – I’m trying to remember which one of the daughters broke into a house repeatedly by having their boyfriend kick in the front door. Plus two outstanding warrants??? I don’t think they are innocent.
