    WHAT IS HIS NAME? Come on, Jolt, don't defend these criminals. How in the world are we supposed to know how to be aware of what's going on when you protect the identity of the criminals who are doing these crimes?

    If he's charged, and in jail, we need to know this. So taht when he gets a hand slap and is released on bail, we can at least know he's loose.
