'Innocent Until Proven Guilty': MO College Students Say Kavanaugh Must Be Afforded Due Process
Pete Hegseth visits College of the Ozarks.
Fox & Friends co-host Pete Hegseth headed to the College of the Ozarks to get students' takes on the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
The school, located in Point Lookout, Missouri, is nicknamed "Hard Work U." and provides on-campus jobs for students, which allow them to graduate debt-free.
Some students Hegseth spoke with said they believe the Supreme Court nominee hasn't been treated fairly.
"I just think that this is gonna change the nation just with how our processes go," one student said. "We have the right to a fair trial and to due process. We live in a country where you're innocent until proven guilty."

Senior Lauren Presley told Hegseth she believes Kavanaugh is innocent until proven guilty, and that those on the left are fighting his attempt to protect himself.
"I think it's scary. If you have that 'R' behind your name, I don't know what accusations people are going to come up with," she said.
Another student said the world is a scary place to live in if mere accusations are accepted as facts.
"If we throw evidence and law out the door, I mean, what kind of society are we left with?" senior Miles Mrowiec said.
The school's president also announced last month that the institution's athletic teams will no longer wear Nike apparel in response to a new ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick.
Jerry C. Davis said that Nike is "exploiting" the issue of national anthem protests by NFL players, including Kaepernick, in order to make money.
