In recent years, the presumption of innocence has become eroded. Evidentiary standards for proving abuse have been so relaxed that any man who stands accused is considered guilty. Research shows investigators who develop a belief early-on that a suspect is guilty are far more likely to seek evidence that confirms the pre-conception and to reject evidence that counters the belief. Dan Subotnik, Professor of Law at Touro Law School in Central Islip, N.Y. and author of the book, Toxic Diversity: Race, Gender, and Law Talk in America, will stop by to discuss it. Multiple media outlets reported this week that Bianca Coons and Cristobal Ruiz traveled from Idaho to the Planned Parenthood in Albuquerque in February 2016 when they discovered they were expecting their third child. They decided they could not afford another baby, and so they headed to New Mexico where they could escape the mandated waiting period in their home state. Coons and Ruiz now claim they used all of their resources at the time to pay for the trip and the abortion, which cost $400. The abortion failed, and their little son is now two-years-old. We know this because Coons and Ruiz are suing Planned Parenthood for failing to abort their baby boy, demanding that the abortion organization pay for the cost of raising him because “medical negligence” resulted in him being born alive. Additionally, they are suing for breach of contract, after all, they paid Planned Parenthood to kill him. Don't forget about the Edwards Notebook and the Veteran's Tip of the Day! All of this and more as time allows. Listen live, join the chatroom, be a part of the show.
