The addresses

My sincerest apologies to Stockton Fire Chief Ron Hittle for publishing his home address in the letter sent to him indicating the city’s intent to remove him from city service. Immediately after receiving feedback here, we took it down and replaced that letter with one with his address whited out. That information was online for less than three hours this morning.

As in our coverage of City Manager Bob Deis and the controversy involving his wife and house, we’ve done all we can to protect their privacy by not publishing the address. The same should go here, as several people have pointed out.

As for redacting other names in the document, that’s not the same. The city has made accusations, which have been included in public court records. That is fair game. Those names will not be redacted.
