  1. Rape? Say it, or print it….terrible journalism….under # 3 “in November he was arrested in an alleged case” Alleged what? Sexual assault? Rape? You failed to mention that. Don’t cover it up. Crab legs were mentioned, you didn’t say something like “He was caught taking something without paying for it” , you gave specifics.
