I notice that with every police activity report the OC police issue a reminder about dogs not being allowed on the Boardwalk at any time or on the beach in the summer, and the police are rightfully very diligent about speeders. The OC law that's probably broken more often than any other, particularly in the summer, is drinking on the beach. However, I've never seen an arrest, a ticket, or even a warning for beach drinking. There's never even a reminder that it's illegal. Therefore, it must be condoned.

I am writing to make an appeal to The Patch to stop printing the names of those arrested by the police. Also all fair minded citizens to demand an end to this practice.. It is a selective process as to whose name is protected by the police and whose name can be sacrificed to public voyeurism. The naming of names in the police blotter is a public humiliation of people arrested but not convicted of a crime. The police use coercion to have arrested people cooperate in their efforts to increase their arrest stats by outing those that refuse to betray their friends and protecting those people from publishing their names if they "cooperate". If a politician's relative or someone that is a well connected "insider" is arrested no need to "work" with the police and betray friends. The police give these insiders kids a "pass". from the public humiliation of naming them. When an arrested person refuses to play the game their name is publicly 'outed'. At least that was the policy in the past. Happily that is no longer the case. The Sentinel and the Press of AC don't publish names now. The Gazette stopped the practice but, regrettably, has restarted it. This practice is pandering to the voyeuristic interests serving no public good. Steve Fenichel, MD

Keep the names coming. I'd like the juveniles as well. Getting arrested ought to be a shameful thing.
Duffer March 18, 2012 at 07:53 PM
I've seen tickets issued for it both here and in Brigantine.
Sam Samstie March 18, 2012 at 08:27 PM
Duffer is right! If you are arrested you deserve humiliation because either you are guilty of the offense or you are guilty of being stupid enough to be arrested for no good reason. This is America and the cops have the authority to do whatever they deem to be in the best interest of the community, their superiors' jobs, and their current mood. Also, think how much better off we'd be if the police and fire departments were privatized! People like me would never get arrested and our house fires would be the first to be put out.
