So how is someone who incarcerated a threat to the public such that you need to
know thier name? Rosco Is correct this young man has been accused not convicted
of a crime.
I must have missed something--was someone convicted of a crime?
this pervert belongs in jail...try him as an adult!
One part of the article notes that the arrest was of a fifteen-year old boy;
later it suggests that the suspect was thought to be a "man in his
twenties." This inconsistency is troubling and as more facts are released
it may make prosecution of the boy more difficult.
Once again, society protects the criminal at the expense of the public. There
are times and reasons for not giving names of juveniles in many crimes. This is
not one of those. This guy needs to be identified for the protection of society
more than for the protection of the perpetrator. This response to serious
crimes committed by those under 18 needs to be reexamined. This is
not the same world we lived in half a century ago. I would think a protection
of names of juveniles age 14 and under would be appropriate these days. With
the deterioration of societal norms, we should address this issue. Teenagers
now often engage in very serious crimes that were quite rarely committed by them
in the middle of the last century. Times have changed and the laws need to
change as well.
"Here again the public needs to know who he is for public safety for doing
such a crime."I disagree. We have a law that protects minors.
The assumption is that a teenage brain is not as developed as an adult brain and
that the connection between actions and consequences are not as strong as in an
adult.Put him into a youth detention center (actually space is
limited so we probably have to prioritize on what someone did), take what he did
seriously so he understands that what he did was wrong.If we knew
his name, then what action could we take on behalf of public safety?
Lets see.....old enough and big enough to attack, subdue and sexually assault a
woman in her 40's.......the term "Boy" seems to be inappropriate
and prejudicial when describing the teen who was arrested for this horrific
Here again the public needs to know who he is for public safety for doing such a
