Never, but never, assume that the legal process will afford you innocence until proven guilty, even though it is supposed to.
Never trust that the legal process will provide you a fair and balanced trial.
Make logical and rational decisions, even in a SD situation.
Don't share your personal observations, opinions, or telegraph your beliefs on social media for all the world to see (and later dissect).
Learn to keep your mouth shut. Listen more than talk.
Trust no one.
