Not very good guys thank you for explaining that to me not -- already out -- up -- did this it I mean it doesn't seem to.
In any way that there is an advantage to releasing these pictures to me I know nothing about psychology but it seems to me that it can only do -- Well yes I would have to agree with he like he said.
For everybody -- and I think the country has become so involved.
Not just the people in new town like everybody everywhere has become so involved and releasing pictures like that would just increase the trauma.

We've heard that it's -- that children were mutilated ends and although we do is just exacerbate instead and everybody's so so there's.
