You can’t help but notice that the image of Christopher Jeffries currently adorning most of the print media is, obviously intentionally, less than flattering.
Since his arrest he has been labelled variously as “creepy”, “weird”, “strange” and various other less than complimentary names.
The fact remains that this man is innocent until proved guilty no matter what individuals (for the greater part unnamed and unidentifiable) may say of him. It is disgraceful that the mainstream media are quite clearly seeking to demonize, try and convict Mr Jeffries simply because he fits the profile of your average eccentric uncle.
Allow the police and, where appropriate, the courts to do their job. It is not the job of the media to determine guilt – even less so when based on preconceived prejudices and stereotyping.
