It is unacceptable, it is forbidden, to harm the innocent.
One threatens the innocent who spares the guilty.

Our constitutionally-based criminal justice system places a high value on protecting the innocent. Among its central tenets is the idea that it is better to let a guilty person go free than to convict someone without evidence beyond a reasonable doubt.
I was never, ever the ingenue. The young, innocent lead was just not me.

We're not going to cure terrorism and spread peace and goodwill in the Middle East by killing innocent people, or I'm not even saying our bullets and bombs are killing them.

The innocent and the beautiful have no enemy but time.
William Butler Yeats
