Yes, "innocent" would be a welcome addition as an option.
No, but we should treat "not guilty" as "innocent".
No, the current system works fine. ('Splain yerself, Lucy)

There was a big issue here locally just last year where the county DA angered the local police by refusing to take weak cases to court if he felt they were unwinnable. While that might seem to back your point, and to a degree it does, it should also be noted that the police made it a point that previous DAs never thwarted them like that and would just prosecute whatever was sent to them.
I believe this happens more than we know.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Options 2 and 3 are the same. We presume innocence, so if someone is found "not guilty" then, legally, they remain innocent.
Public opinion is irrelevant and will not change based on a change in the system.

Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
