Don’t bother looking for the name of the person they arrested after a 9 hour standoff and a giant expense and inconvenience to all, let alone the potential terrorist event that seems to have been likely. Itisn’t there. The names of lots of witnesses are clearly spelled out though. I hope they all have lots of insurance. The police really only want to protect the perp in every way clearly.
Someone needs to find the name of the guy with the “suspicious device” and broadcast it. ASAP.
