Innocent until proven guilty on GIS?

Google Image Search comes up empty on Darryl Littlejohn Is Google Image Search censoring all hits for Person Of Interest Darryl Littlejohn? Or is it possible that GIS has found zero image files with those keywords on the whole Internet? As of the time of this posting, GIS only returns 10 hits for Darryl Littlejohn, and none of them have any connection to the bouncer. I admit those two words ('Darryl' and 'Littlejohn') are rare, but since the bouncer is possibly connected to the Imette St. Guillen murder, I would imagine GIS would come up with something? I find it odd there aren't even any "false positives" for 'Darryl Littlejohn': files with those keywords which are not photos of the man. New York's favorite parole violator is conspicuous in his absence.

A link about who Darryl Littlejohn IS would have been nice.

He's some guy whose name evidently returns only 10 hits on GIS.

Lord Kinbote, the spider that feeds GIS takes some time to index everything. Mr. Littlejohn has only been newsworthy for a few days - the pages that have his pic probably just haven't been indexed yet.

This story has been all over the New York tabloids (cute young middle class white girl brutally raped and murdered, and the suspect in question -- a black male recidivist ex-con -- is being tried in the press, helpfully enabled by a steady stream of info supplied by the cops and DA). I don't know whether this kind of thing is worth discussing in the Blue at all... But seriously, what the fuck kind of FPP is this?

Finally! An FPP about something not being on the internet!

Metafilter: the best of not on the web.

Okay, people, the lame FPP alarm has been sounded. You know the drill -- everyone file calmly and quietly to your designated area in the grey. Be sure to check in with the drill marshal so that he knows everyone made it out safely. Remain where you are and await further instructions.

6 months to get images up, according to Sergei (and much to his embarrassment, so the story goes). See many previous metafilter threads (the lack of Abu Ghraib photos on Google created quite a tizzy for a while). In the meantime, check other image search providers that are faster than Google, but still take time.

an utter crap one? that's my guess.
