If you were accused of molesting children, falsely, what would you say?
You would say, "I didn't molest" the children. This would be first and foremost in your language, and would flow easily. You might add, "I never molested..." and "I would never do such a thing!" as part of your statements, but the simply fact that you did not molest children would be the basis for your denial.
It is what truly innocent people say.
Q. What do you mean by "truly" innocent people? Does this suggests that there are different types of "innocence"?
A. There are different types of "innocence" in status. One may have "done it" but is "innocent" of the charges. One may have not been found guilty, for example, and is, "judicially innocent" of something. I speak to a "de facto" innocence: that is, that one did not do it.
Being judicially innocent, before a trial, for example, does not mean one did not do it, but only has not been yet judged. Another may have, like Casey Anthony, gotten away with murder and is, judicially, innocent of killing Caylee. This is not to say that she is, in fact, innocent, of killing Caylee.
In the next article, we see a man accused of child molestation, therefore, we look for him to tell us that he did not do it. We have a principle:
If someone is unable or unwilling to say that he didn't do it, we are not permitted to say so for him.
What do you find in his statements?
