Today's cover of the Daily News boasts the exclamatory word "Rage!" and an ensuing story about the reason a New York jury only convicted Michael Pena, the NYPD cop who attacked a school teacher on her way to work, of predatory sexual assault instead of rape, which would have carried a possible life in prison sentence instead of the 10 years that Pena now faces. Why would the jury stop just short of levelling the harshest possible verdict on Pena? Because, according to the News story, the victim could not remember the color of a car parked across the street where she was forced to her knees.
