Then And Now


Then And Now

CREATED Oct 25, 2011



Gun advocate Jesus Gonzalez went on trial yesterday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court.  Gonzalez is accused of first-degree intentional homicide in connection with the shooting of two men last year.  Gonzalez maintains that he acted in self-defense.

It's not uncommon for a defendants to "clean themselves up" before trial.  It is however unusual for media reports to point this out.  Yet, this is precisely what today's story in the local newspaper did!

Above are "before" and "after" photographs of the defendant.

Later today, we'll discuss whether the change in the appearance of  Mr. Gonzalez is newsworthy and relevant?
