This excerpt from an AP story about an alleged pedophile suspected of ghastly abuse struck me as a bit odd:
Persson said he personally had opposed making the photos public because it demonstrated to criminals that police can unscramble pictures. But that consideration and the risk that the man could face public humiliation or even violence now that he is recognizable were outweighed by the desire to protect other children from abuse.
I would say a little public humiliation is in order. That, and a painful castration (photographic evidence shows the man sexually molesting 12 underage boys, ranging in age from 6 to their early teens).
