Of course they'd think he's innocent. He wasn't even investigated, or even interviewed. This thing has cover-up written all over it. Who knows what actually happened, but from an outsiders vantage point, it looks like Winston was given preferential treatment because of his local celebrity at the time. I'm not surprised FSU people see it differently. Football is king in Tallahassee.
