There is a saying which goes something like this:
“ Everyone has the right to their own opinion but no one has the right to not know the truth.”
Considered very carefully this means that to know the truth:
- You had to have witnessed the event and also know what was in the minds of those involved.
- Were not a witness but know what was in the mind of the perpetrator.
However, bearing in mind that, often, even the perpetrator is unaware of why, at the precise moment, he or she acted as they did, it is not possible to know the truth.
Now, having carefully considered the above and even added to what I have said, would you serve on a jury in a court of law?
