I don't think murderer is an emotive word, it's a word used to describe one
person who kills another deliberately without justification. I don't quite
see how using the word 'murderer' to describe a person who murders someone
is one step away from bear baiting.
 
And without wishing to play devil's advocate too much, if a convicted
criminal of any type escapes from any type of prison, I don't see how the
Data Protection Act or Human Rights Act would prevent a police force from
issuing a wanted poster. I think that idea is ridiculous. Using wanted
posters for unconvicted suspects has to be done with care, but
post-conviction, I don't see a problem with using images to help catch
criminals on the run.

It has always struck me that "public interest" and "public curiosity" can
merge in these circumstances.  The emotive word "murderer" seems to justify
all sorts of things.  We'll have bear baiting back next.
 
It is, of course, hugely newsworthy to agitate for the release of the
pictures, but, if they are what one might term "docile, specific victim"
murderers it seems to me to be in no-one's interest, least of all the
public's.

Lord Falconer has criticised the police force for their reluctance to
disclose the images, and as I was listening to the news on the way back to
work 20 minutes ago, BBC News announced that the photos would now be
disclosed. Funny how suddenly they feel able to do this.

I have just read an article about two escaped murderers from Sudbury prison
and Derbyshire POlice are refusing to release photographs of them as it is
not in the public interest, their human rights could be breached and the
Data Protection Act.  Apparently ACPO have stated that photographs should
only be released in exceptional circumstances where officers believe that
the suspects may be a danger to the public.
 
Am I missing something here?
