The problem with publishing these arrest'ees on the front page is, that you are trusting that the law enforcement KNOWS what they are doing, you have tried and convicted them without a trial of public opinion now. You provide the information in a very biased forum, misleading the public. Not a newspaper, it is a "town crier". Did you report that the elderly man, although wrongly beaten and robbed by someone, and not necessarily the accused, has sex on his back deck with young boys and drowns raccoons in his pond? NO, you know nothing other than what you are being told, that is not good journalism, it is propaganda!!!
