I'm definitely not defending the guy, but I'm a little bit surprised a news organization would print the name and photo of a minor who is arrested. Found guilty, maybe, but arrested? Editors: is that normal Patch policy? Just curious.

Good that our Police Department is making so may arrests. It speaks to the quality of the U City police. Better yet, if we could offer well paying jobs to the young people living in our community there would be fewer petty burglaries and our police force can focus on other matters.

Bravo to Chief Adams and the UCity police force and citizens who are providing key information to the police to get the shooters and burglars arrested.
