Is there a protocol for putting someone’s photo in the news paper for a drug bust?
I have noted for even under 100 gram of Cannabis, the person’s photo is in the news paper but for large drug bust not even the names are revealed.
I am just curious
so so true. wonder if is someone in high places
see bull… man get held with half ounce of powder cocaine, 70 pieces of crack , and 20 bags of weed, along with some currency – HE , HE MUMMA HE SISSA HE BROTHER, ebrybady face name and age in the paper… WHY ARE THERE NO NAMES AND FACES AND AGES FOR THIS SITUATION ????
BC a politician and police cocaine !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Does the police and politicians control wat the media writes about a particular news item. Retarded!!!!
The information usually comes to the media via a press release from the police. So, I assume people are querying why the names were not sent in that usual manner. Not that it is the media choosing to withhold it, but rather the assumption is that the media was never given that information to begin with.
They actually do they have there or PRO that conveys information especially if it’s and ongoing investigation as in there maybe other person warreting arest news media releasing certain information without proper protocol can hamper investigation. Especially with this large quantity there is reason to believe the one person arrested may have accomplices
Whyyyyyyy….is the name withheld????
Where is the picture ????WHY is it withheld also
Is ONLY THE POOR N DOWNTRODDEN UGLY FACES ARE PLASTERED OVER THE MEDIA…….

Dnice … you have NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE SAYING … the ONDCP is far far far more reputable and placed under stiff accountability measures than police … get your facts straight and don’t just dribble lies because you have a mouth and can talk/type.
That’s because the police need him as bait for the bigger fish in the drug business.
And its “Eleven Million Eight Hundred Seven Thousand Six Hundred Forty Thousand”($11,807,640.00 XCD). Please leave out the (and)
