  1. Dan did you seriously just ‘out’ one of the witnesses.. As a journalist (never give up your source) I thought you’d be a little smarter then that, guess not.

    Good luck Lincoln.. stay safe, just sayin’.

    Strange daze indeed..

    • I appreciate the concern, when I say witnesses I mean people in the area, residents, passers by, other who contact me.

      If I wanted to “out” someone which as a journalist I never would do, I would use a name and say “so and so” told me this was going on.

      I have rules, ethics and common sense enough to never burn a source as it’s never a good way to go about my job.

      In hindsight using local residents etc. in this case may have been a better choice of words.

      Thanks for the feedback.
