  1. I think this is sickening that news media can smear good people’s names before this person is found guilty of anything. I know this gentleman for over 30 years and he is a very nice caring guy. The news media is sickening these days about smearing people’s names without waiting until the person is actually found guilty in a court of law. Then people get found not guilty but their names are already smeared and their reputations are already hurt when they are innocent people. Being charged or arrested does not mean guilty or convicted. Give him the benefit of the daught since he’s innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
