Why does the Truth hold back the names of some of the people listed in this article?

Seems like we read or had heard somewhere in the past that an individual who has been arrested can request that their name not be released to the public, but we cannot verify that for sure.

The resident know-it-all of the opinion forum (Jack'nov) will probably be on here to clarify it.

I can't tell you. It irritates me also. Isn't that a matter of public record? Maybe it's the politically correct thing to do now adays, so that we aren't insensitive to people who commit crimes.

I'm surprised. Usually the Truth names folks, just not the ones busted for driving without a license/never having a license. (Illegals who CAN"T get one).

Hi @FreeAmerican, 

My name is Anne Christnovich and I'm a digital producer at The Elkhart Truth. Part of my job is to steer our social media pages and answer questions when possible. I saw your question about why we don't run all of the names under the arrests report and wanted to tell you that we only publish the names of people arrested for drug-related charges, operating a vehicle while intoxicated and all felonies. 

If you have other questions or comments, don't hesitate to email me at achristnovich@elkharttruth.com.

Thanks for your comments!

Thank you for the information.  Just out of curiosity why don't you list everyone's name no matter what they infraction is?  Isn't it a matter of public record?  I wonder why the Truth decided to choose the areas that they did. 
Thank you for answering the questions posted.
