          1. Lots of logic, reason – and editorial judgments, as journalists always have. I’ve posted this many times. I doubt it’ll make a difference to you, because our editorial judgments clearly are vastly different than what you’d make them (writing on every sex-crime arrest, etc.) But perhaps others will see differently:
            In general, it’s a revised policy that has to do in large part with the permanent, searchable nature of the internet and a responsibility to minimize harm. We do name some suspects arrested in major crimes, but no longer automatically list or use the booking photos on all names released by law enforcement, as in the past.
            That can change when formal charges are filed- which are quite often different than for the initial arrest.)
            There are some people who think we should even post all victims’ names – every bit of public info. At the other extreme, there are those who think no suspect should be publicly named until a conviction. In the middle are 1,000s of judgment calls – what charge is serious enough to warrant more info (impact on public safety, etc.)
            Similar judgments are made in terms of rescues. 
            I hope that helps a bit.

            Yes, we “pick and choose” what to cover and how. Like every media organization on the planet.”

            …and there you have it folks, media organization, not news organization. please change your name to media channel 21.
            central oregon’s news leader? no, not anymore.

            ktvz “policy” of no names is only a policy when they want it to be.

            people come here for news and when criminals break the law the public should know the names of said criminals. this softball reporting approach is a watered down story, it’s no longer news, it’s just a story.

            i’m glad there are now other news organizations available for those that want the complete news story

            1. ALLEGEDLY break the law. I presume you believe in the court system.
              You hate us, yet you’re on our site day and night, changing no one’s minds or views, surely not the practices of this news organization.
              But do go on. I know you will.

              1. you went straight to hate? really? when did I say that?
                nice moderation, btw. i realize you might be under some stress, but now you are accusing me of hate.

                Here is the wiki definition of moderation:

                Moderation is the process of eliminating or lessening extremes. It is used to ensure normality throughout the medium on which it is being conducted. Common uses of moderation include:

                Ensuring consistency and accuracy in the marking of student assessments.
                A moderator may remove unsuitable contributions from the website, forum or chat room they represent in accordance with their moderation system.
                A more proactive nuance is found in the Methodist church’s use of the term for the heads of its conferences.
                A neutron moderator is used to slow down neutrons in a nuclear reactor.
                A way of life emphasizing perfect amounts of everything, not indulging in too much of one thing, hence moderation.

                have a good day “moderator”

                1. Blah, blash, blah……… ZZZZ-ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ…………. SOOOOOO much whining!!!!!!!!!

        1. Honestly? I apologize. I get to read 1,000s of comments a week and get confused once in a while. I get gunshy about unsubstantiated criminal allegations, and there was another story with no police mention of drug use where I didn’t allow a comment that raised the possibility.

  1. How is that the Statr of Oregon has decriminalized meth and heroin and essentially made it legal, but they continue to arrest those that sell it? Stupid

    1. Read the law. 2.7 ounces would be over 76 grams, well beyond the possession under 2 grams decriminalized in measure 110. I don’t agree with the law, but misrepresenting what it says is, to use your word, stupid.
