    We live in a society with both social and legal consequences for our actions.

    Presumption of innocence is for legal matters. Me calling him guilty is not a legal matter. It’s a social consequence of his actions.

    The gross texts are available to read. They are undisputed facts. He is guilty of sending them.

    There are no legal consequences for those texts. The social consequences include losing his job.

    Do you feel we should live in a society with only legal consequences and no social consequences?

      Both of your points were already addressed in the OP.

      The gross texts are available to read. They are undisputed facts. He is guilty of sending them.

      There are screenshots with no one claiming ownership. Investigators saw far more than you or I did and decided there wasn’t enough evidence to push charges.

      Do you feel we should live in a society with only legal consequences and no social consequences?

      I guess my question to you is: why make the comment at all, when your concerns were already addressed? I’m here. I’ll talk to you. How was your day?
