Let's start putting some names and mugshots to these "unnamed individuals." Stop hiding the identities of these criminals.

Or maybe they can get a fair trial first.

Agree Chris! How about this Matthew - Stop breaking into homes and cars, selling drugs in school zones and on our streets, mugging innocent residents and they won't have to worry about their names being in the papers!! Right? Public shame verses fair trial are two separate issues. Many other towns and cities post names - why not BPD or The Patch? TheBostonChannel.com even has mug shots!

*sigh* Yeah, cool. Sounds great. Let the shaming begin, I guess, "innocent unless proven guilty" be damned.
Joseph February 06, 2013 at 03:47 PM
Matthew - are you a defense attorney? Once someone is arrested, that police report is public record, is it not? I'm confused by your stance? Innocent until proven guilty is a flawed argument for this situation.

They used to post names occasionally , I think they should go back to the old way I am sure Becca is trying however, i think the patch was more informative in every aspect . it's just not the same.
Townie Girl February 21, 2013 at 01:30 PM
The police know her, they identified her, not a first time offense i am sure if the police id her. I think her pic should have been in the patch, I think we should start shaming these people.
