Catch me if you can

Ha ha, hilarious. American police have created a MySpace profile for a bank robber to see if anyone can identify him. (He’s got 915 friends as of this blogdate.)

I wonder what the legal implications are here? Is this similar to putting up Wanted posters, or does it infringe more basic liberties, such as personal identity and misrepresentation? Either way, I doubt the guy’s coming to come forward and correct it.
