Re: Justice Is Blind

I would agree that a court should refer to any possible act as "alleged.". What I'm talking about are those cases here a photograph of a man holding a gun is captioned "alleged gunman." Further, newspapers are not courts, and given the rush to judgement (cf the accusations regarding Loughner's motives), the idea that we are withholding judgement regarding clear facts makes little sense to me.
