whats the point of putting this on here, it makes no sense, ,,
thats like me saying i have a cure for the common cold and not telling anyone. or is it to protect the victim . if thats the case then don't bother with this non sense
SM-G 2/23/2014 7:27:54 PM Report

It is to protect the victim (as well as any children involved in the situation). However, it is important to publish these stories, even without the names of the accused, as it brings public awareness to how often these “incidents” occur in this city.
mr.jack 2/23/2014 7:59:05 PM Report

sm-g, , sorry not good enough reason. its ok to put names of DUI or break n enter or the best when they arrested the guys for picking up prostitutes, , is that ok? no its not you can sell drugs and get caught and have your name listed so everyone can see yet someone's daughter got choked and yet your worried about the victim,,, then leave the victim out of this and list the jackass that did this
I'm In 2/23/2014 10:28:36 PM Report

I agree with mr.jack not SM-G, the charged offender and victim names should be published, I don't care how many times it happens in this city cause it happens everywhere else and names are published.
campfiregirl 2/23/2014 10:36:55 PM Report

I understand where others are coming from with their responses to this article but think of the victim?? Does she really want everybody to know what has happened to her? Probably not.
Especially since depending on the circumstances she will no doubt be blamed for what happened, if not by the guy then his family and friends.
toodles 2/24/2014 2:49:41 AM Report

Perhaps this isn't the first time this has happened to the victim, but this time she had had enough of it. With names being published, friends and family will know and be able to offer her help and a safe place to go or someone to call if it should happen again. Seriously, how many women and MEN get abused but are ashamed or embarrassed about it and go on living in silence at the hands of their partner and end up being severely abused or even killed and none of their friends or family knew they were being abused in the first place, because they were always *happy*? At least this way, with people knowing, the victim has a better chance of not being a victim again. I could say more, but that would only be about vigilante justice being taken out on the abuser.

Mr. Jack so you want the name of the victims released to appease you. So the victim appears on sootoday so the usual suspects can comment. The victim is usually ashamed of the fact that her spouse assaulted her so now the whole world has a right to know that she is a victim.Also if there are kids involved they have to go to school and listen to children harass them about their parent being a monster. How about rape victims do you want their names released as well. Get a life will you.

Being a victim myself of this sort of behaviour I would love to have seen and think it's important for the community to see the names of these men or woman to help prevent others from becoming involved with these charming individuals.
mr.jack 2/24/2014 1:18:05 PM Report

to sinikka
thank you for the nice words, but i did't say anything about the victim did i ,,i said for the guy that got charged, and yes i do have a life unlike you thinks this story should have no meaning ,i feel bad for the victim or any victim , but to post only some names and not others is wrong. maybe i work with this guy or my wife. people need to know for own saftey what kind of people are around us..if your stupid enough to do something that gets you on the police beat ,then you should also feel the shame
Bad Dawg 2/24/2014 4:42:44 PM Report

if we all knew who these losers were none of our daughters would be in that situation. seems more like protecting the abusers than the victim.
sinikka 2/24/2014 5:21:14 PM Report

Mr. Jack posting the name of the abuser in a domestic violence case identifies the abused. And it also identifies their children . If for instance mr. jack is charged with domestic violence then mrs. jack would automatically be identified as the victim. And Mr. Jack's children have to go to school to face the barrage of jokes about their father.If you do not see the correlation well then so be it.
ren-35 2/24/2014 8:13:10 PM Report

Since when should the victim or his or her children feel the shame and the humiliation?? This current practice we are using furthermore isolates the victim. Domestic violence seems to be the specialty these days. If we want it to stop then I think the least we can do is to exploit the abusers name. That just might stop one man or woman from using violence as a solution to their anger.
mr.jack 2/24/2014 8:41:09 PM Report

well there sinikka here is the thing, , this guy got or is getting charged, know one knows who this is. so say this guy has a histroy of this kind of attack. now go read bad dawg 's response .. then lets see how you feel about your response
mr.jack 2/24/2014 8:50:25 PM Report

another response to to sinikka... my girl is 13yrs old when she meets new friends how do we know if these new friends or there friends friends good people. we need to know who are kids are dating and hanging out with, so i do feel bad for the victims but i don't also wanna be one either, and if you have
kids lets hope none of them bring home one of these people who you want to protect, ,,think about it
sinikka 2/25/2014 9:34:55 AM Report

mr. jack i am not protecting the victim , the law is. Ask the majority of victims and they will tell you that they do not want it made public especially not on this thread. As a matter of fact if the victim wants to release the name of the accused there is nothing that stops them. So go on sootoday and let the world know that your spouse is a abuser. I do not want to protect the abuser, far from it. But if names are made public you can bet that many victims will not go to the police to report incidents of domestic violence. It's a fact.
