While we are free to inquire, speculate, formulate and discuss our opinions regarding this incident privately, it is critically important that we restrain ourselves publicly in the absence of the facts surrounding this incident.
Very little factual information has been publicly released and rightly so.
We are all, regardless of station, entitled to the fundamental right to due process as well as the right to face our accusers.
Two important facts we should all take pause to contemplate prior to making any commentary, public or private.
No person came to any physical harm. For that we are universally grateful.
Secondly, we share a common duty as responsible citizens to protect these aforementioned fundamental rights.
No one should be tried or pilloried in the press or other public forum.
Doing so not only tramples the rights of the Judge, but those of your own.
On second thought go on ahead rant, rave, slander and libel.
We, or at least I, obviously don’t have any rights.
