    Uh NO! EVERY other sex offender has his/ her name released RELEASE HIS NAME and stop covering up for him!!! EVERY person in the form of “power or control” such as police, politicians, etc NEED to be automatically kicked out of office, and black listed with any office of those fields! So now we have cops on paid leave running around sexually assaulting people yet no one gets to know his name? AND WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT BECOMES A CHILD NEXT? LOCK HIS ASS UP!!!!! This needs to come to a stop of sweeping shit under the rug and be dealt with accordingly!
