Letter: Print crime names

It was heartening to read that the Post Independent’s new publisher, Jerry Raehal, is “a passionate advocate of the First Amendment and the public’s right to know.” May I suggest, if that be the case, that he change the policy of omitting names on the crime page. The public is better served when the miscreants are public knowledge.
