I think I can tell you why; it's probably the same reason the descriptions of perps is being left out. Perhaps they are afraid we'll draw conclusions regarding who is doing what...

Dan Haley, could you please tell me why the names and addresses are INTENTIONALLY omitted in the crime reports. I also read the Oak Leaves and the Forest Leaves and that information is ALWAYS reported, so I know that the information is being disseminated by the police. I would just like a TRUTHFUL answer. Censorship is not becoming of a true newspaper. Thank You
