Herald hypocritical in mug shot posting

  • Article
text size: AAA

Regarding your article "Your reputation, for a price" on March 17, isn't it hypocritical for the Daily Herald to feign outrage over the fact that websites charge for the removal of posted arrest photos, since pretrial photos frequently printed in the Daily Herald -- and the Naperville Sun -- can never be removed?

The publishing of arrestees' photographs, in any venue, violates the principal that a person is innocent until proven guilty.
