This hoopla about that picture is ridiculous. Get over it people!!!!! RS can use any picture they want. The article WOULD be good, had RS used the word "alleged". I can't believe how willing we are to ignore the presumption of innocence in this case! Either that right exists in this country or not--- we don't get to pick which cases to apply it to. The defendant in this case has been tried and convicted in the media and court of public opinion. It is impossible for him to get a fair trial now. America, shame.

So agree! This cover brought out the worst in people! Never saw such drama about a stupid magazine cover. And is the guy with 11,000 words? You bet! First, IF he is guilty, then we need to know what happened. Second, IF he isn't guilty, we need to examine our conscious about why we were so quick to crucify him. YES, the story deserves every word.
