YES, THEY'RE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. Yes, the news media have to be careful and say "sniper suspects" and "alleged snipers" rather than "snipers." Yes, our justice system is deliberate for a reason, and it has generally served us well.

But I worry about people who, now that the danger seems to have passed, choose to fetishize those technicalities. How "unseemly" to seek vengeance! How sad that all this killing and stuff might have tainted the jury pool! Boo fucking hoo.
