I'll be the first to admit I have always had serious problems with the inclusion of all crimes by all McLean residents in the weekly police blotter. First offense marijuana possession and first offense DWIs are not news unless they involve public figures. That being said when there is a violent felony, you list the crimes straight from the Fairfax County Police press release, but don't go any farther. Between you, me, and everyone who looks at the comments section, the crimes Mr. Bowen and Ms. Mariotti are alleged to have committed seem like serious breaches of the law that require more information than what is printed here from the police blotter. For instance, was Ms. Mariotti employing the child (and if so, where, because I and many others might not want to patronize a business that endangers the lives of its child employees) or was the child in her custody as a babysitter or parent? Indeed the obstruction of justice charge sounds like it ought to be explored as well. As for Mr. Bowen, just by looking at the blotter it seems his arrest was something that would make the producers of COPS proud to put on their air. So the fact that it allegedly happened to someone who lives in McLean (not exactly a bad part of town) begs the question of what happened. If you're only going to provide half the story, you either need to provide the full story or stop printing the police blotter.
