Female ecstasy trafficker is glorified in the media

So, here's a story about a woman who has since pleaded guilty to trafficking ecstasy, who managed to escape police custody.

The interesting thing is that we never got what we get if it were a male on the run: a running news bulletin about an escaped criminal who is on the loose.  Even now the media is holder her up as a "what an amazing person who managed to escape police", even though they were preoccupied with trying to save the woman's dogs from getting hit by traffic!

No, the headline is all about "bikini model evades police", not "ecstasy trafficker escapes police custody".

Imagine the headline if they'd just left her dogs to get hit by cars.
