BAD local reporting of child abuse

Postby Big_Sister » Tue Feb 14, 2012 7:23 pm

Will somebody PLEASE explain to me what is the journalistic or aesthetic logic or purpose of including this photo of what are apparently parts of hand-cuffs with this particular story?

If I do not receive a DAMN GOOD explanation, I am going to believe that the motivation was to create kind of sensationalistic, creepy, icky, faintly suggestive snuff-kiddie-porn effect, putting our friendly (SIC), neighborhood (SIC) WSJ in the unsavory company of, say, Channel 15 ("if it bleeds, it leads) on an especially bad day.
