"11 criminals slapped with handcuffs" - are you a criminal before your trial or after a conviction? I'm sure the line is blurred for many, but I'm a little taken a back by the presumption of guilt this article portrays on people who are put in handcuffs.

I think that Ryan must have learned journalism from watching Fox News. What's more disturbing is the complete lack of editorial review. Then again, perhaps Kari is of that school as well.
Fran June 26, 2012 at 05:56 PM
LMAO. Lack of any review, let alone editorial. Downright painful.

This is all my fault, if we're placing blame. Consider me scolded.
Ryan Macasero June 29, 2012 at 04:46 PM
Thank you for the feedback. It was careless of me. I promise to be more careful and do better going forward.
