A Case For Full Disclosure (Just My Opinion)

I think that the new breed of JD demands a new approach by newspapers and newsbloggers. Name names! By informing the public, a future crime could be prevented by smashing the vulnerability resulting from the lack of (1) knowing exactly WHO the perps are (2) being able to google them and identify them by photos (most of these characters post photos and brag about their exploits on social media) - and more importantly, determine WHERE THEY LIVE - just like sexual offenders, there should be a law juvies must be reported on a state registry and neighbors be notified when an offender moves in!


She was charged with Criminal Possession of Stolen Property 5th.

The girl, whose name is not being released due to her age, has had numerous contacts with the Albany Police since 2009, mostly in reference to stealing from cars. Her first contact was at the age 9 after she stole a cell phone from a bus driver.

Officers responded to the park after receiving a call that the two teens were breaking into a car. Officers caught up with the teens moments later and located stolen property, burglary tools, and a pellet gun.

The one teen, who is 15 years of age, was in possession of a GPS Unit that was later determined to be stolen from a car parked inside of Washington Park. He was also in possession of a metal wrench that he was using to break car windows in order to gain entry.He was charged with Criminal Mischief 4th, Petit Larceny, and Possession of Burglar Tools.

undefinedIn other countries they might be called "street urchins" and the locals know they're bad news! These youngsters represent the same cut of "kids" who one day may get their hands on a gun and shoot a guy like BAILEY. The public needs to know WHO they are!

Also, like Joe Sullivan says: NO FREE BUS RIDES for those who previously had run-ins with the law, especially burglaries! Let's not TEMPT them!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
