I didn't think you posted names of juveniles in police reports...

For the Darien Lake press releases, I decided last year that this year, I would change that policy.

Last year, I started removing the names of people who got citations upon request if the request came 90 days or more after publication. I decided, if I was going to do that, there's no reason not to publish the names.

The only reason we've not published names is because our stories stay online forever and are forever available to a Google search.

If somebody decides down the road that publication of their name for a minor offense is causing a problem, I'll remove the name.

If they don't request it, I figure it doesn't bother them.

I hope the Chief from Doyel #2 saw one of the many reports with this person's outstanding "alleged" actions

Brian, based on what I heard on the scanner that night, the proper department was notified.
