Delta County arrests/bookings from Thursday thru Sunday, March 26, 2018 – Delta County is now protecting domestic violence suspects by hiding the charges – They are thin skinned and did not like one of our editorials that said they were soft on DV – so we are now forced to show all arrests

(Escanaba, MI) – U.P. Breaking News is now forced to show all arrests in Delta County – since the Delta County Sheriff and Prosecutor just began hiding charges again domestic violence and other assault suspects.
They did this a day or so after we criticized them for being weak on DV suspect – who had attacked two people in his short life – and put one in a coma.
We do not know – and neither does the public – what these people were charged with – and officials in Delta County like it that way.
U.P. Breaking News believes strongly in exposing domestic violence that is rampant across northern Michigan. It is sad that 14 of the 15 U.P. counties (exception is Marquette County) hide domestic violence and other felony arrests from the public.
They like the power and control of information – and like to decide what you know. This is unacceptable in a free society – especially in an area where a women are violently attacked daily by other men and women. Sometimes the victims are men – but most are beaten by cowardly men (the prosecutors, sheriffs are men).
Domestic violence must be brought out of the shadows even if the U.P. local Boss Hoggs want to protect the offenders. Women have the right to know what men and other women are violent.
Apparently they want you to guess the charges.
