Bloomberg Suddenly Not Into Perp Walks, Rushing to Judgment

That Mike Bloomberg, you can never accuse him of having knee-jerk judgment, right?
Now that the case against former IMF honcho Dominique Strauss-Kahn has fallen apart, Mayor Bloomberg objects to handcuffed "perp walks" of crime suspects.

"I've always thought that the perp walks were outrageous," Bloomberg said Tuesday. "They're not guilty until they're convicted, and yet we vilify them for the benefit of theater, for the circus. ... They did it in Roman times, too."
Actually, they also did it just last year.

“If I had to guess, twenty five cents, this would be exactly that,” Bloomberg said. “Homegrown maybe a mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything.”
