What if

What if this guy was looking for his keys? Of course is easy to judge if you put that picture; but everybody is innocent until proven guilty. To put this picture and claims is not only irresponsible but should be punish. We don’t know if he is guilty or not; but you just ruined this guy life making this accusations…just in case. Someone is going to sue you. LIC Post


While I agree with you in principle, I am going to give the LIC Post the benefit of the doubt on judgement. If the police are this interested in the guy, I imagine it was clear to witnesses what was being “manipulated” in his pants.
