RECENTLY, it was reported that convicted drug "kingpin" Kaboni Savage has - yet again - been indicted by the feds, this time on a laundry list of charges, including his alleged ordering of the 2004 firebombing of a North Philadelphia rowhome in which six people, including four children, died.

At the time of the murders, Savage was being held at the Federal Detention Center in Philadelphia awaiting trial on drug charges. The feds allege that, from his cell, Mr. Savage ordered two associates to commit the firebombing.

The fact that Savage has been indicted doesn't mean he's guilty. Because he is an American protected by the Constitution, we must presume his innocence. We must also remember that he's entitled to a fair trial.
