Innocent until proven guilty?

I am glad I wasn’t drinking my hot chocolate when I came across an ODT article on Nationals new MP for Taupo’s maiden speech.

“It seems everyone is presumed innocent – except the police,” Ms Upston said.”

I though everyone was presumed innocent untill proven guilty?

One thought on “Innocent until proven guilty?

  1. Depending on which Police she’s referring to, some of them were guilty until acquitted.
    Just not proven innocent!
    Failure of the Police to prosecute their own effectively is not the same as having no case to answer.
