Re: The man is innocent...
Your initial post was that the man committed no crime.
As I said, "dog fighting" is illegal in all 50 states.
Therefore, it is a crime.
You have now turned the discussion to jury duty.
If you are a juror on the case and decide to vote your conscious and feel the man is not guilty, so be it.
That's your choice as a juror.
However, the man committed a crime according to written law.
God's law, as you say, whatever that is, does not factor in to the criminal justice system.
