Suspect a Crime?

As humans we make assumption all of the time, sometimes without even noticing, about other people, perhaps that everything is about you, or even that being short is a limitation. So it is easy to make an assumption about a crime we have no evidence for. Everyone does this without even thinking, sometimes our gut feeling assists in making a decision, but a gut feeling can not truly make a decision for us. To first solve a crime it starts with suspicion, but to absolutely solve a crime evidence must be involved. The definition of suspect is to “have an idea or impression of the existence, presence, or truth of something without certain proof.” So basing guilt off of suspicion alone would not be just. It is easy to base a decision, like suspecting a crime, on the way we feel about another person, if that person is a friend we will most likely not want to believe that a friend would commit a crime.
