Joseph Smith was treated as a suspect (and much worse, and murdered) over and over again without credible claims against him.

The thing about a credible claim, is that there has to be evidence. If there isn't actually ANY evidence, at all, to suggest someone killed their spouse... then nothing should be done. I think the intent is good, but the consequences are unforeseen.

Can someone be a suspect without evidence? How much evidence is needed? If none, then what... a hunch? I'd hate to see loving parents removed from their children on a hunch.
