Moral Standard

20Sep11

The editorial of the London Evening Standard today highlights the newspaper’s support for the Metropolitan Police in bringing rioters and looters to justice. The editor writes: “it is to help the police bring them to account that this paper publishes these pictures [of still-unidentified rioters]”. The comment continues, “bringing these offenders to justice and reinforcing the principle that crime does not pay is what matters”.

Presumably the Russian police will not need the newspaper’s assistance to identify the culprit.
