  1. Thank you for having the professionalism to refrain from naming names of the accused. Although I certainly do not condone the activity of the accused, I certainly think it was altogether unnecessary and very inconsiderate of other local news media to print actual names…names of people who first and foremost, by the very nature of our constitution, are not guilty until convicted in a court of law, and secondly, and equally important…people who have family in this community, who have careers and reputations, who do not deserve the inevitable speculation that will befall them as their names are tagged by careless news media. And shame to the police for feeling that releasing this information to a news source was even remotely acceptable at this juncture of the investigation. I underline that I am not defending the actions of the accused..but adding salt to a wound is shoddy journalism. Thank you Voice, for refraining from this practice.
