Let’s Rush Towards Facts, Not Judgment

In this current political and social climate, a rush to judgment has become commonplace when someone faces any kind of allegation.

We saw a rush to judgment in the murder of Jazmine Barnes.

We saw a rush to judgment when rape allegations against R&B singer Chris Brown came out of Paris.

We saw a rush to judgment in the infamous video of teens from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky facing off with Native American elder, Nathan Phillips.

We saw a rush to judgment over 10 years ago when three members of the Duke University lacrosse team faced allegations that they raped an African-American exotic dancer.

And in the #MeToo movement, some innocent men lose their reputations and careers immediately if a woman said he sneezed in her vicinity.
