Being arrested is not the same as being convicted of a crime.

pretty much the same these days. Guilty until proved innocent.

I live in America. Where do you live? In America, we are innocent until proven guilty. It's how the system is supposed to work.

Not in Darien. In Darien the police throw at you as much as they can dream up, the papers all print it like it's true, with pictures, and then when it get to court it's thrown out.
