On April 15, 2013 there was a tragic bombing at the Boston Marathon. Almost instantly pictures and videos of "suspects" started to appear on the web. Was this a good thing? Do you have concerns?

My Fear

By releasing the images of suspects (not criminals as judged by peers, but suspected of committing a crime), is this not the government encouraging people to go and seek these people. With people globally concerned about a lack of harsh sentencing, I fear that with suspects in serious crimes, the government is bypassing the judicial system and inciting violence in denizens of towns affected by crime.
