Law enforcement think it over carefully before releasing photos of suspects. In this case the need to warn the public and to identify the two men was so overwhelmingly obvious that it would have been negligent not to release the images. We may eventually find out that they were planning more attacks. Any chance of a fair trial won't be affected, judges in high profile trials are very careful and won't get influenced by an old media release, and nobody is going to elect for trial by jury in a case where a young child was killed by a bomb. Not that this case is going to trial...alitogata said:Excuse me but it is supposed that any suspect is innocent until it is proved without any doubd that s/he is guilty. So I really don't understand why the FBI puplish photos of the suspects, and show their faces in public. If these people are proved innocent it would be totally unfair to have their photos online as criminals, or terrorists etc.
Unless they have a camera evidence that shows them to put somewhere the bombs.. but I suppose that they don't have such evidences..
