There seems to be this unique situation in the US where famous/nortorious people who are arrested are paraded in front of the media even before they have appeared in court or been found guilty of anything. Is this a political thing (ie the police chief of DA throwing their weight around)? A New York thing (if appears that is the only place I've seen it happen)? The reason I ask, is because a lot of Americans are into personal freedom and due process etc, innocent until proven guilty, yet - and let's not pretend otherwise - this is nothing more than trying to undermine those arrested, or embarrass them. I ask this because this is what happened to Strauss-Kahn and all charges have been dropped. Thoughts?
