It is very refreshing to see a journalist not give in to the bloodlust of the masses when it comes to covering news stories.
As Sports Editor Dave Ruthenberg states in his personal column, Daniel Holtzclaw deserves the presumption of innocence.
In the social media age, innocent until proven guilty has become archaic, a relic of the past. When every news source and social media outlet was quick to deny Daniel as much as a momentary doubt pertaining to the allegations against him, Ruthenberg took a stand, and in doing so became an advocate for our justice system.
No one knows exactly what transpired, and Daniel should be given the same accord anyone facing a similar situation would hope for.
He deserves more than what has been plastered all over the media, his family deserves more, and I believe Ruthenberg has aided this cause.
If people would stop blindly following every negative word they read on social media and return to the real world, they would be more capable of coming to their own conclusions.
