Farmington Hills police hide identities
Why, I wonder, would Farmington Hills reverse policy and not offer the names of deceased members of the community?
They have released names before, including of minors and of domestic violence victims.
Of course, in this case, it appears that officers waited outside for 3 hours after the shots were fired. I wonder if a life could have been saved.
Well, I wondered enough to check, and according to medical examiner's staff, nothing could have saved the child once he was shot in the chest. A tragedy, such a shame.
But don't minimize the death by protecting the name of the father and hoping the story goes away.
Law enforcement is supposed to provide detached professionalism, so please just share the information with your community and don't try to act as public censor.
