A person knocks on a door and it swings open. He looks inside and sees blood spattered and running down the walls. In the corner there is a partly dismembered body with an axe embedded in its chest. He dials 911 and informs the police.
The police arrive, film and measure the carnage, noting the footprints in the blood and the bloody handprints on the axe.
*Meanwhile, one of the arriving police cars stops a man running down the street. He is covered with blood and leaving bloody footprints from his soaked shoes. They detain him as a possible material witness.
*The investigation begins and for the next year, we hear about this case of an alleged dispute which may have escalated into a physical assault resulting in an alleged homicide. The captured person may have been involved in the alleged incident.
*The alleged investigation goes on for a week or so until the press loses interest, then it all dies out of the public purview.
*One of the first officers on the scene was questioned by the press and he described what he saw, including the several matching cuts on the victim and the axe embedded in his chest. Unfortunately, he failed to say the alleged murder weapon, and mentioned a homicide without the alleged tag. He was removed from duty, with pay, until the alleged investigation dragged to an alleged conclusion.
*Apparently, every crime today is an alleged crime and every perpetrator is an alleged criminal until a jury finally finds him guilty. Then the family will know that their loved one was the victim of an actual homicide committed by the actual murderer. At least until the appeal when it becomes alleged again.
*I don’t think there is a thinking person on the planet that is not aware that trump is an unregenerate crook and con man with a cruel streak as broad as the yellow streak down his back, yet while common sense would pull him out of office and nullify all of the appointments and actions of his “government,” he’ll be allowed to continue to destroy as much as he can, steal as much as he can, because he is only an alleged criminal, and the thousands of children held in ice boxes and their agonized parents, often sent back to the killing fields they had brought their families from are just alleged victims.
