If it was the decision of the editor to omit the names of the young people involved in these incidents, I commend you on that choice.

I disagree. They are 18+ and as such, adults. Publish their names as it's public record anyway and easily found regardless.

Yes, it is public record, but easily found is a bit of a stretch. More importantly, what purpose does it serve to publish the names? Do we want these very young adults to have a better shot at recovering from a stupid mistake, or do we want to punish them forever by having these incidents come up in every Google search of their names?
