Letters: Protect sheriff's deputies

August 12, 2012

Re "Official possibly hindered probe of jails," Aug. 5

Your article took the unusual tack of protecting the identity of an inmate while revealing the name of three deputy sheriffs. The Times should not have released the names of the deputies.

Protecting an inmate's identity may be appropriate. Printing the names of the deputies is dangerously irresponsible.

Lee Baca
