    I believe that it is not appropriate for news media to write incriminating articles (including a picture of the alleged perpetrator). Mr. Chuppa is innocent until the DA proves in a Court of Law before a Judge and a Jury that he did commit, beyond all reasonable doubt, the crime(s) for which is charged.

      Mr. Dameron, while you are entitled to your beliefs, the public is entitled to the information that Mr. Chuppa was arrested and charged. The information contained in the article was provided in a media release by the arresting entity and is a matter of public record. The Royal Examiner stands by its reporting of the facts. Once Mr. Chuppa’s case is adjudicated, that will be reported as well.
