    False.The United Kingdom is the only country I can think of that has this. I think you should be innocent until proven guilty. Just because someone got killed and you may have a recently fired gun doesn't mean you did it. Here is another good example of this. Quite a few years ago the police found a lot of trash dumped in the woods with several items that had the same persons name on it. They arrested the person. The judge asked why the police arrested him. The DA said because we found this trash with his name on it. The judge scolded the DA for bringing this to trial. His reasoning was anyone could have dumped that trash out there, someone who wanted to get back at the guy, kids causing mischeif, or a trash thief looking for social security or bank account numbers.

    In English Law it is "innocent till proven guilty", but in the Press it's "Guilty till proven innocent"

    Sometimes.

    It doesn't make sense though to say guilty until proven innocent. Shouldn't people provide the evidence to prove whether someone is guilty and not whether they are innocent. Thats like saying God exists until you prove he doesn't exist, which is complete and utter nonsense.

    Guilty until the MEDIA decides that you are not. As long as it sells papers, blogs and tabloids, you are guilty.

    This trial-by-media is very scary!
