And what exactly does James M. Harrigan look like? Why report on this story if all you can provide is a name and no photo or even physical description? Race, height, weight, hair, tatoos, etc would be helpful information to know otherwise the public cannot be on the lookout and won't be on guard / cautious in case they actually do spot him!

Great question Richard, everyone already knows the answer but few have the courage of their convictions to actually speak up, well done.

I echo the comment that there should have been a photo included from dmv in the story. Logic and safety???
