Joe, I agree, I don't think anyone's name should be released in regards to an arrest until they are convicted. People (the general public) love to read names in the paper or media and until that changes it will continue.

@Patricia, you're right, it's the police who release names or not, though I'm faced with two different standards between our two departments (SH and TT) and thus some seeming inconsistency.

Both Departments practice double standards and selective enforcement Depending on who's on duty, depends on how helpful they will be. Call either one of these Departments and most of the time you get the feeling you are bothering them, like they have so MUCH to do!

@Aintthatascam, yeah if you have ever had to go into either police station, you will get the same cheerful hospitality. They totally act like you're bothering them by being there!

@krista, the issue I have with all of this is why would a police officer tell someone that he would make sure that the arrestee's name would not be released, and then turn around and release his name anyway? What motivation would the officer have to do that? I'd be willing to bet that this isn't the first time something like this has happened. It's things like this that make people loose trust and respect for the police.
