Much like my ban on the posting of Facebook links of suspects in the comments I’m ordering another ban on the site.
If law enforcement or the media have not released the name of a suspect it will not be allowed to be posted anywhere on this site. This could not only interfere with any ongoing investigations but it could also interfere with prosecutions. We may be just one little blog in the scope of things but posting information like that can have a lasting harmful impact.
However once a suspect’s name has been made public I will be more than happy to allow it even if the media or law enforcement stop releasing the name again. As they say you can’t unring the bell. But I will not allow this site to be used as some kind of vigilante tactic.
That is all.
