    I think the APD and the Herald made a mistake publishing the name of the woman who witnessed the fire. Someone who is unstable enough to light a shopping cart on fire is certainly capable of engaging in violence against someone who snitched on him. Considering that the suspect is unknown, you could be jeopardizing someone’s life. This sends a terrible message to the citizens of Antioch that if you witness a crime and report it, the police may out you. Considering our problems with organized gangs, I would think the city and Herald would have been more sensitive.
