Great job for the person that chased the thief down the street.
Is there a reason why the names of people that get arrested aren’t published? Maybe they should be (East Boston’s local new letter does) listed and they maybe, just maybe they’d think twice before doing something illegal.
>> Is there a reason why the names of people that get arrested aren’t published? << Publishing names for crimes is an often debated issue. Arrests are not convictions so there is the presumption of "Innocent Until Proven Guilty". BPD A-1 downtown does not release names on its reported incident logs, but usually will when there is a longer report on a serious crime. There is something to be said for second chances, esp. for younger folks that might lose a future job if their employer easily found their name on such a post via Google for something that may have been later dismissed. Thanks for your comment.
Thanks Matt for the clarifacation! Now I get it! Much appreciated.
Put their names in the paper and let the chips fall why they may ! Then maybe the entitlement Generation may learn something the hard way !
