Reporting what we know

An online reader today takes us to task for what he or she thinks is an incomplete police report.

You often see this online, where readers want more of the story. But in most cases there isn't more of a story to report, until a hearing or trial is held.

Putting the information that we know out there informs the public. Not printing it until it's complete, as this online expert wants, will keep a lot of information away from the public.

Just something to think about when you wonder about missing information.
