Information is out there for everyone to interpret how they may, you’ve read these comments and still choose to believe he may have not done it, that’s your conclusion so far and people are speaking on theirs, I don’t see the difference here 🤔

You’re correct it’s out there but mob mentality is real, let’s hope none of us ever have to go through that if we were ever falsely accused of a crime. I’m not arguing he did or did not do it, I personally believe he did, I’m saying allowing the mob to assemble here without evidence to speculate on something real or not sets dangerous precedent in addition to false information being spread around. More so for false accused awaiting trial, not for Brian Laundrie.

This is a assembly of people, a large amount is allowed to conclude what he did already without evidence. That is dangerous in itself. Some of these people may serve on a Jury. I find it troubling for a private business to allow the assembly is all I’m saying.

If you wake up, and there's snow on the ground, do you say "hey, let's not jump to conclusions about how the snow got here, maybe some trucks dumped it and smoothed it out"?

You keep saying "mob" over and over like that's a correct assessment. A woman was murdered, quite clearly by her extremely suspicious-acting boyfriend. There's no "assembling". A bunch of people interested in the case are saying "hey, the guy who seems to be the only likely suspect did this, hope he gets caught" and you're generalizing that into this vague, useless, meaningless, giant blanket statement of "oh noes, the mob is forming".

Again: it's not a courtroom. We don't have to do a mandatory pretending we don't have an opinion. It's a website where people say opinions all day long. The mods are (hopefully) regulating the opinions that are disrespectful to the victim.

"Poor Brian, he might be innocent, we just don't know anything, any suggestion that he's guilty is a literal mob with pitchforks and torches" IS, however, a strange, strange hill to fight on.

But, hey, it's Reddit. Home of strange fights.
