My reasoning is that this is seldom a public matter and often enough doesn't involve serious harm. In this case, no medical treatment was wanted and the charge was disorderly conduct. If this took place in public or if the matter seemed to be more dangerous, I'd reconsider. The name is out there. Basically, I'm putting a finger in a dyke that's already been breached elsewhere. So be it. I won't be a part of making it public.

Darien Patch also doesn't name children who are arrested (and police don't give out those names). Kids who are 18 and over shouldn't be kids any more.

This is ridiculous. Being arrested is NOT the same thing as being convicted. That's why you go to court and have a judge hear your case. He's a criminal? We don't really even know what he did. If he is convicted, maybe they will tell us his name. But in this country, you are innocent until proven guilty-not guilty until proven innocent like in other countries. Proud to be an American....

I'm not discussing this case, but just in general, when it comes to domestic abuse cases, I think we and the courts overlook the obvious. Why did one partner feel the need to physically hit the other? Do we think a husband came home from work and just decided to hit his wife? Or does the wife sometimes throw fuel on the fire? I've seen wives beliitle their husbands. I've seen wives verbally torment their husbands. I've seen wives intentionally try to embarrass their husbands in front of others. Why? Maybe it's because the wife is feeling older and unpretty. Maybe the wife is jealous her friend bought a new BMW and she puts down her husband for not making more money. Maybe the wife is bored sitting around all day having lunch with the other ladies, so she intentionally tries to stir up trouble. I don't know the answer. Maybe it's all of the above. But I feel this needs to be said and remembered and considered when passing judgment on only the husbands.

Are you really this oblivious and blindly patriotic to think that in this country we are innocent until proven guilty.... Seriously? How many hundreds, if not thousands of people, have been issued a summons, charged with a crime, had the crime itself dismissed and the facts of the case expunged so that there is no evidence of the incident even happening... And yet articles stay up on blogs and on Internet sites of newspapers forever basically incriminating that person and making them guilty in the eyes of the public.... They end up having to wear a Scarlett Letter, much like a guilty person would do if convicted of a crime... Innocent until proven guilty... I wish that were the case.
