A: So giving someone or a situation the “benefit of the doubt” means that there is a reason to think they are being untrue or that there is something wrong with them (them being either a situation or a person). Even so, you will go against that either believing what they tell you or believe that a situation could have a good outcome even though there is reason to doubt it.

For example, let’s say you made a cake for an event and leave it in your kitchen. Your friend comes over and when you walk into the kitchen where your friend just left, you find that a slice of cake is gone. You ask your friend if he ate a slice, but he says that he didn’t. In this situation if you were to believe your friend even though it appears like he ate the slice, you are giving him the benefit of the doubt.

Q: What does The benefits of a public good do not have to be paid for by "free riders." mean?
A: "by" is actually very important here, and corresponds to 「に」

be paid = 受身形
be paid for (by~~) = ~の支払いが(~~に)される
~~に払われる = be paid by ~~.

We paid $10 to the driver: 運転手に$10を払いました。
The ride was paid for by us : 私達に支払いはされた。 (受身形)
The driver was paid by us (forなし!) : 運転手は私達に払われました。

Be careful of the target of "for" here. "paid for" is a fixed expression. If you break it apart, you get a different meaning:
I paid the bill for you - for you = あなたのために
I will (pay for) your meal = 食事の支払いをする。 "pay for" ~~の支払いをする
少し違和感 : I will pay for your meal for you : あなたのために食事の支払い。。。 "for + for" = 違和感。

The situation that your professor describes above regarding public goods has other names as well--freeloading is one that comes to mind, as does "parasite", "moocher", and "sponge". In the US, we sometimes have a problem that is the opposite of free-riding--that of being forced to pay for services that one does not use. For example, tax dollars are used to subsidize public roads and oil companies, but if you don't drive a car, you don't get to directly benefit from those services. 面白い話ですね。
