I’d like to add my voice to those in opposition to the Monitor’s publishing of police arrests — along with photos of those arrested — on the front page of the paper. My opposition is not to printing the information. That’s an entirely different discussion. My opposition is to printing the information with photos on the front page.
Why the change? Some might argue that it acts as an incentive to change the ways of those accused by increasing the chances of those arrested feeling humiliated. Public humiliation is a powerful emotional motivator.
Of course, this form of punishment doesn’t weigh in the possibility of innocence nor does it consider the additional burdens placed upon the family and friends of the accused. More importantly, it doesn’t consider
the potential disastrous effects that can easily arise from using this form of punishment.
