It's not about the majority though, it's about pure human courtesy and morals. If that were me, I would not want the humiliation of that printed publicly. There are things I don't like my neighbors to know.
Some argue that it's a violation of the publics right to know, but that would be like saying, "It’s a violation of the public’s right to know when you bath and at what times, how often you change underwear, and when you clip your toenails." I wouldn't be comfortable telling that to strangers I don't even know.
Of course it's common sense to release the rapists' name. Luckily most reporters agree with me, and even though it's not against the law in most states, still don't release rape victim’s names.
Police said the suspect fled on foot. No arrests have been made and an investigation is underway." It also stated "The victim was shot in the stomach just before 5 a.m." According to the Us Criminal justice chart the shooter is only at the second block, since no arrests have been made and the person is only a suspect.
The second article I read was written about 3 days ago and was about a dog who was shot. It it a bit longer and goes a little more in depth since it wasn't breaking news. It's title is, "Tavern owners offer reward in dog killing"
It reads, "Animal Services is investigating Ruby's death as animal cruelty and have asked the sheriff's office for help tracking down her killer, who also could be charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm, according to Stosuy." On the Us Criminal Justice chart, The killer is unkown, there aren't any suspects so this crime is only at the first block, and obeserved crime. the results of the crime may be different from the chart, however, because this is involving an animal, but i'm not sure.
most of the sources were 'officials'; "...according to California Highway Patrol spokesman Todd Thibodeau."
and; "...CHP Officer Mike Davis said."
