And One Other Thing
In the outrageous Ann Althouse post that was referenced in the link to Jim Henley in the post below, Ann updated by accusing her detractors of being ranters because they can't appreciate the distinction between 1) saying that the good that comes of police assassinating an innocent man outweighs the evil of the act and 2) saying that that good might not justify the act, but is still worth recognizing as a good.
Ann's brave stand against presumption of innocence seems to run hand in hand with her not at all pompous conception of her opponents as children to be tutored and corrected:
There's a sad lack of rationality here, and it's become pointless to try to reason with the ranters. I'm a law professor and I always assume that some of commenters are my students, so I try to talk to everyone in the comments as if you were my students. But office hours are over for me on this post.Um, fuck you.
