9. Anonymous doesn't usually provide much court-grade information.

For example, much of what they posted during the Steubenville imbroglio was either inflammatory, or at least tendentious.

What they do well is to elevate visibility, increasing pressure on law enforcement to do their jobs.

And having seen the Local Yokel on TV saying that the victim and her family needed "to get over it", I'd say there is no reason to assume that they did their jobs properly. Thus external pressure. Thus outside media and anonymous.
