He may be innocent... just saying
January 19, 2017 6:59 pm

Without evidence that would prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt it you must let him go.

Hundreds of people convicted for murder have been exonerated years later. Some studies suggest as many as 10,000 innocent people are convicted on a serious crime each year in the US. That is horrendous when you think about it.
In Halacha without 2 witnesses who witnessed the actual crime you cannot convict.
He may be guilty. But by the same token he may be innocent. We hope they find real killer and that the evidence is conclusive beyond a shadow of a doubt.

make sure this gets onto social media

Today the prosecutor or whoever can lose their job if you do this properly.
truth will prevail, but we must not let it go

That isn’t possible due to the law of double jeapordy. (Can’t be tried for the same crime twice no matter the evidence.)

The police did not do their job

It is a shame the police just wanted to make an arrest, so if he is not the person that killed the Rabbi, then I hope they catch the real person that is responsible for his death, poor family has been through so much, now they will have to go through it all over again

misleading headline

He may have committed the crime, however he has not been found guilty under the law. He denies committing the crime and the prosecutor, for lack of enough evidence, dropped the charge. Maybe more evidence will be found to re-charge him and try him in a court of law. However, at this point it is inaccurate to describe him in the title as “the Killer”, at most the “Alleged Killer”.

Thats life

AL PI TORAH when there is no witnesses he goes free same in the US.

A shame but without a confession of witnesses sometimes bad people walk.

Fake

This wThey were not interested in finding and convicting the killer. They arrested some random negro kid to get the public off their backs. Now try the real killer after nearly three years wasted.

sue him civily or ask feds to step in
January 17, 2017 7:12 pm

Civil court you only have to prove by a preponderance of evidence or more likely than not. ie 51%

Criminal standard of beyond a reasonable doubt is a lot higher.

Feds can come in under civil rights violation laws ie killed b/c of religion. Someone has to petition the feds after inauguration.

Horrifying
