Who is on the jury?
I am discussing my opinion on a video that someone brought up. Looking at that video, yes I can make conclusions. They do not amount to a hill of beans because I am not on a jury. If I was selected for jury duty and they asked if I saw the video, I would answer yes. If they asked if it would be a problem for me to disregard what I saw in that video, I would have to say yes. So I wouldn't be selected.
People talk about crimes. They talk about them all the time. People selected for juries are not suppose to read news accounts or discuss the case outside the courtroom, and that would include internet forums.
But we are not on the jury. So I don't get your point.
You are telling me it is inappropriate to discuss this, or have an opinion about this.
I am saying if anything is inappropriate, it is to suggest that you have more information about the case due to your ties with law enforcement, that it is not like the video shows, and that other people should not discuss it. Sorry. You maybe should not disguss information you have that is not in the public domain. I am only disgussing that which was shown on a newscast.
What I saw was enough in my opinion. I think she should be charged with child abuse. Then let the court prove her guilty of child abuse, otherwise she would be innocent of child abuse. But the prosecutor may choose not to file charges for a whole bunch of reasons, and she STILL may have committed a crime, but was not charged.
I wonder if it is in a community's best interest NOT to charge someone with child abuse because if there is litigation down the line about the mistreatment of someone's child, having her convicted of child abuse would place the school system/community in a worse position in their legal stance. Just a quick thought, but I suppose it is possible. I mean if the lady was convicted of child abuse, and then the parent sued the woman and the school system for putting her in charge of the children without a solid background check, or whatever way they may have been negligent in using this individual, then the prosecutor might be pressured not to press charges. If our legal system actually did work like that, that would be criminal.
