My dear Derek, SOME of what you say is good, however I perssonally tired of another word that is used ALL the time. If millions of people see an individual act in a criminal way that individual is "alleged" to have committed the act. Now I know that that word is being used in a legal sense, so it should be modified to "legally alleged". Without that modfier the person may or not be guilty of committing the act, a totally different position. Of course the sharks will not agree with this as their income depends on not using the modifier. The perpetrater may be blind, insane or have some other reason / excuse, but there is no way he is not guilty of having committed the act. His / her punishment has to be determined by these reasons.
