    • It’s a fairness issue because too many of those arrested are not prosecuted. We do not have the staff to folo up on these arrests, as you can see from the volume. So the consequence is if these names are published they live forever on the Internet and reputations are unfairly tarnished. Other than domestic violence incidents, names of folks who are arrested and suspected of felony offenses are still published.
