    Well, where is his mugshot? Why not a picture of the criminal? So we know when the pansy A** judge lets out with probation to prey on someone else,;;;we will then know what the pos looks like. How about protection of the public;;and quit protecting the perpertrators? Honestly, the Media are more concerned about offending some, MUslin or being called racist;;when they show the picture of an african american accused of a crime. Political correctness has brought this ruin upon our country.
