8th Commandment Issues

8th Commandment Issues

The 8th Commandment, “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.”

Yesterday, some rumor encouraging websites circulated photos of people that others had decided were suspects. This vigilantism had the unintended consequence of defaming and endangering a 17 year old boy.

I wondered why the F. B. I. was taking so long to release photos of who they suspected. (They finally did release video and photos this afternoon.) I think they waited because they did not want to slander an innocent man’s name.

I want the bad guys who caused the Boston Marathon bombing caught. I also do not want innocent people to be unjustly targeted.
