Disowning Suspects Before Trial

I didn't really notice until thethirdvoice pointed it out to me, but it seems weird the way the BBC keeps refering to the 18 arrested this morning as "British born" rather than "British".

It's as if we've disowned them before they've even been put on trial or anything. So much for innocent until proven guilty, certainly never true where the media is involved.

Isn't this to emphasise that they are 'British bred and born' rather than a naturalised citizen? The aim being to accentuate the schism in society.

Isn't this to emphasise that they are British born and not naturalised citizens? It also accentuates the schism in society.
