The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool.

Racial profiling punishes innocent individuals for the past actions of those who look and sound like them.

Benjamin Todd Jealous
It is better to risk saving a guilty man than to condemn an innocent one.

The death penalty issue is obviously a divisive one.
