*Note that “suspect” and “criminal” are two far different terms. The former is used when the person has yet to be proven guilty and can therefore be cleared of all charges. The FORUM is well aware of and takes good care in using these terms. To the public, let’s not judge people, OK? Please be knowledgeable enough in understanding these basic concepts*
