> therefore anyone who is accused of a crime

He was not accused of a crime! The police wanted to question him as a "person of interest" - big difference!

Almost every news story I saw report on this when it broke last week reported it incorrectly in the headlines as him being "wanted" - it's a shame that journalism can get away with being so sloppy sometimes.

It's a procedural difference, but "person of interest" is really just a bureaucratic euphemism for "suspect we don't officially designate as a suspect yet".

Agreed. However, running from the law and how he's been acting is not in accordance with someone who's innocent - no?

What law? You mean the corrupt "legal" system there? Wouldn't most innocent people who are afraid of corrupt police act in the same way? (i guess that implies his innocence then!)


What about his friends on the "trumped up charges"?
