    Fun fact, the suspect is also an EX-Cop. I suspect that there are some nasty bits on that hard drive that will get a lot of people in trouble.

    What part of "suspect" is confusing to you? Or do you have conclusive information others don't?

    "Suspect" means not found guilty but under investigation. It's misused when a convicted criminal is called a "suspect". In this case the guy has been arrested for something else and is now a suspect and being investigated for C.P.
    I don't understand your point.

    My point is that guilt is being assumed and implicitly proclaimed by labeling this individual a "Pedo" when there is no evidence that he is one.

    What would you call him? Someone is investigated for child porn, there hasn't been a trial so guilt or innocence isn't known, but there is evidence.
    Im not being snide, what would you call him?

    At worst, "suspected pedo". "Child-porn suspect" seems reasonable at this point, and is accurate.

    What evidence is there, in this case?

  7. The Feds keeping anyone in jail for not decyprting hard drives i.e. A privacy issue is the important thing here.

    much as his suspected crimes are egregious, its a long slippery slope ladies and gents, and isn't it a right somewhere to refuse to incriminate oneself.

    Indeed. Now, what is the relationship between severity of an accusation and accuracy of that accusation?

  10. Would it be a terrible burden to add the word "suspect" to the title, after "pedo," at least until the guy is found guilty?

    ...or cleared?
