Hi Christian,

I am the managing editor of the Vermont Cynic, and I, too, was
concerned about UVM's lack of explanation as to why it did not send
out an updated press release to students. Would you be willing to
speak to me on the record about your concerns when an incident like
this happens, and what you see as being particularly dangerous for
students involved? I have put in calls to Police Services asking what
their usual protocol is in this instance, and why they would not alert
students that the man pictured is not a sexual assault assailant given
that this information is false and potentially damaging. Please give
me a call today at (401) 867-0848 or if you email me back and I can
shoot you an email with specific questions if it is more convenient
for you to email me your statements.
