I would like to know how publishing the name of a student in the security report does the U of R community any good. While I am well aware that it is your 1st Amendment right to print his name, it is not necessary by any means. In the past when I have read the security report students names are rarely if ever mentioned. Furthermore, there are two incidents in the security report of this issue with other individuals which do not include names (The student with the swords and the intoxicated student). What journalistic purpose does it serve to publish his name? While I will grant that his actions were extremely stupid, he does not need the Campus Times to embarrass him further. He already has to deal with the legal ramifications of his actions. You are not only embarrassing him in front of the undergraduate student body, but also in front of all of the various alumni, graduate students, faculty members, and other members of the Rochester community who read the Campus Times. Hopefully you will stop to think about what you are printing next time before you submit it for publication.
