    Hey Familiar Face, it's quite clear that you would not be the star witness for facial image recognization! Check out the link I copied below. These perps look nothing alike, but hey look at the bright side.......The RNC would likely STILL hire you if you have a degree.

    It seems a little silly to me that the police did a forensic sketch because a man was acting suspiciously and want to talk to him...

    How does one act suspiciously ? What is suspicious to a paranoid person is normal to someone else.

    Will he be charged for acting suspiciously ? This is like being a person of interest, which basically criminalizes an individual the same way as being called a suspect. Regardless, this describes about 200,000 people on the Avalon Peninsula.

    Hey George, I agree with where you are going with this. The person who called police to report a person acting suspiciously is probably paranoid. Perhaps the police should do a background check on the complainant.

    Familiar Face from NL, I was just comparing both sketches, and the police descriptions for both sketches, which are practically the same. I think you're right... this is the same creep involved in the assult at Quidi Vidi!!

    Does anyone else find that this sketch looks awfully similar to the person they were looking for in regards to the assult in Quidi Vidi over the summer???
