While I am no fan of thievery,, I am finding myself more and more taken aback by your incessant disturbing trend of posting the name's and addresses of people whose only crime was simple shoplifting/petty theft...How many of us have been leisurely grocery shopping and " taste test" a few grapes while shopping and not paying for it..Would that be featured here also? Yes arrest records are public and available if someone goes looking for it (employers etc) ... But would you want the local online newspapers not only featuring your arrest but violating your privacy by providing your name and HOME ADDRESS as well? I find this practice irresponsible,needlessly humiliating to the accused, and dangerous... I recall last year when you posted the name face and home address of a man suspected of attempting to entice a child for sexual purposes .. then had to RECANT a full 5 days later when the police later found out this man was unjustly accused and it was an error.. Meanwhile how do you take back the fact that this man's private information eg HOME address is out there posted here for all the world to see? Are desperate people of lower socio- economic rungs just fair game ?r My question is where are the names and residential addresses of the wall street execs who scammed people out of millions?
