    The reporter seemed to be reporting facts until he wrote, "Thomas appeared to be "paranoid" about having his property taken, investigators said."

    Maybe that is a "fact", but would it be allowed in Court? Were the investigators qualified to speak to Thomas's mental condition at the time of his arrest? Should a newspaper allow a reporter to "report" something that would typically be thrown out of court?

    Maybe a quick review of the old "Dragnet" or "Perry Mason" TV shows would help. Thomas deserves the respect due any citizen.
