Guest opinion: The Rev. George Taylor: When is civil disobedience justified?

I am glad that Rob McKenna, former attorney general of the state of Washington, is not the presiding judge in my legal case of nonviolent civil disobedience now pending in Spokane County Superior Court.

As a former prosecutor himself, Mr. McKenna should know that you do not pass judgment on a case that is currently being investigated and litigated. In our system of justice, a person is considered innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt by a jury of his peers – and not the other way around.
