The Pizzagate Evidence Which Cannot Be Dismissed or Ignored
The threshold for launching a law enforcement investigation, or probe, of a possibly criminal matter has always been relatively straightforward. Where police have gathered, have stumbled across, or have been confronted with clear evidence that a crime has occurred, is occurring, or is about to occur, it is incumbent upon law enforcement to act.There is a difference between evidence and proof. Evidence consists of signs of a possible crime, a dead body, a bloody knife. Proof, in our justice system, can only be delivered, if at all, under the rigorous standards of a court of law.
The obfuscation in Pizzagate is a textbook example of a smoke-blowing operation which has enlisted the highest levels of previously respectable major media organizations, for the purpose of confusing and denying to the public that there is anything which proves a crime. In this case the crime is the abuse and sexual exploitation of children. But evidence is not proof. It is only evidence. Police must investigate at the threshold where the evidence indicates possible criminal activity.
An investigation may be very short, and show only unfounded fears based on evidence which can be explained away as innocuous. Or an investigation may be very long.
