    So how does this work? Lock the dude up – he’s a menace and a habitual law breaker – ????
    3/4/17 at 2:52 pm, 28 year old Emmanuel Rader was contacted by police at a residence on Garrow Dr. during a trespassing complaint. Dispatch advised Rader had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. He was arrested without incident and sent to County Jail.
    Then again on 3/7:
    3/7/17 at 3:32 am, officers were dispatched to a vacant building that is utilized to store miscellaneous items in the 1600 block of A St. for a report of a burglary in progress. Upon officers’ arrival, they found the building was unlocked and a local transient, 28 year old Emmanuel Rader, was sitting in the building due to the cold weather. Rader was released with a citation for trespassing.

    I would like the Herald to rethink their policy of publishing these police reports when they contain the names of witnesses to crimes or citizens who haven’t been charged with a crime.

    A few months back, you published the name and address of a homeless woman who witnessed a fire, now you’ve made it so that Mr Morales and Ms. Tourville will forever show up to potential employers on Google, for simply being at a residence that had a stolen gun. This doesn’t mean that they may not have been involved, but without even being arrested, they will now fall under a cloud of suspicion because the APD decided to release the info and your paper decided to publish it.

    If someone is arrested or convicted of a crime, it seems fair to name them. If the police dont have enough evidence to even charge, let alone convict, then why are we ruining their reputations and lives for simply being at the wrong place at the wrong time. I expect this kind of unprofessionalism from the APD, I do not expect it from the Herald and would humbly request that you at least consider developing a policy that can protect Antioch residents from unsubstantiated insinuations that they have been involved in a crime.

      Skip,
      You make a good point and that’s a fair approach. While we don’t highlight the names of the people involved in the police calls for service in bold, just the crimes, their names are included in our report of the public record provided by the police chief through the city manager.
      I will check with an advisor with many more years of experience in journalism and make the decision and let you know how we will proceed in the future.
