    Is it not rather strange that the culprit is being portrayed like some model or movie star rather than as a third rate criminal in handcuffs? The picture sends the wrong signal to young and impressionable mindsthat committing such crime against unsuspecting young girls can provide the culprit free and widespread exposure through the media. I hope they prosecute this lowlife to the fullest extent of the law.
