Ariel Castro was sentenced to life in jail plus 1000 years for his crimes on August 1, 2013. His victims have requested that the press honor their privacy. To respect their wishes, I have removed references to the victims names from my article on this topic. Will you?

I removed the perpetrators name also, and now call him the Cleveland Child Rapist. All the victims were taken while young.
Agreed, the names of the victims are already in the media. You cannot unring that bell - unfortunately.
Removing the victims names is also an attempt to protect the child involved. Politicianscount on us to forget so that they can get votes in the future. Can we not use this to try to protect a child? Victim names will be forgotten if unpublished.
