Excuse me, but what poop-minded movie is _that_ from?!

In my (layman's) education about law I learned that "could",
"would", "should", and a bright imagination don't lead you
anywhere in a constituational state that is prout on providing
a legal system under the requirements of the rule of law.
It's the job of the investigators to _prove_ you're guilty,
not your job to prove you're not. Of course, that job isn't
always easy, I can understand this, and far too often, the
criminals get away because they know "some clever tricks".
But it's fully unacceptable that the whole thing turns around
in such a way that there is a _chance_ that innocent people
get convicted because of the _absence_ of evidence.
