It is good to give people the benefit of the doubt, but sometimes I feel you have to to give others the benefit of the doubt but don't be stupid. I think its important to be leery of others. There are a lot of people who are trying to take advantage of others.When I have a bad feeling about someone and then they act like a creep I trust my instincts. I don't think that suspicious people who have proved themselves to be evil deserve the benefit of the doubt. But that's just me.
