    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?

    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 crime.

    Here again the public needs to know who he is for public safety for doing such a crime.
