Michael,
When you call this guy a “bad man”, you are using the same demonizing tactics so often decried by the SO community when used against registrants. A man with a bunch of drug offenses sounds like a man with a drug problem. People with drug problems and drug-related convictions deserve the same respect from us that we demand from the media. I understand your point, that the reporter landed on the SO label as proof that he’s a scary guy. No need for us to do the same thing just differently.
