I think this is much more interesting as an example of the complete degeneration of the news media into a tool of the police state. Even the headlines are now devolving into their most basic form.
It's so obvious now, too. They can't even wait an entire week between the time when someone does something questionable, and when some politician rides in to save the day.
Soon it will just be one story directly after another, "Bad Man Do Bad Thing" followed immediately by "Politics-Guy Angry at Bad Man," probably in big bold red lettering with a frowny-face next to it just to make sure they reach their core constituency of vindictive, attention-deficit-addled morons.
