    This is the picture that you should have posted in the Daily Star Journal’s Wednesday addition. Not one of a smiling prosecutor. I am not sure how her picture related to the story other than you interviewed her. Seems like the paper made it more about the upcoming election by using that picture rather than about the story of a young victim who finally reported what was happening to her. I am not saying that the prosecutor won’t be apart of the end result when her office is working with this disgusting human beings attorney, myself and others are all wondering what the DSJ motives were behind the picture.
