I pretty much share your dim view of our local daily but I'm giving them a pass on this one.
It's customary for the police not to release the name of the driver in cases like this unless and until he's charged. I think that's a good idea, at least while the investigation, because the nut jobs around love to rush in long before the facts are known. Remember that poor guy who accidentally ran over a goose at Tod's (or maybe Bruce Park, who remembers)? It was an accident, for Crissake, but his name was released and he later reported receiving hate mail, vicious phone calls, death threats, etc. from the PETA folks. That's unfair, I think.
So its your blog and you are of course free to go after whomever you want but I won't nail them for this in mine. Give me a crummy editorial, however, and I'm there.
I Will Defer To You If You Say That This 20 Year Old Mystery Drivers Name Should Not Be Released. You Are An Attorney And I Am Not.
