Now that the Westchester County elitist newspaper has created an interactive map of gun license registerees, the real world is again coming after these "smarter than though" clowns at Gannett News with unforeseen consequences. Prisoners are now threatening guards in Westchester and Rockland counties now that they can find out where they live. Gannett News is not only facing boycotts, but the expense of hiring lawyers. But even a lawyer can't convincingly spin much in terms of death threats - and people willing to carry them out.
Here's an excerpt from the Fox News story mentioned by Pamela Geller's Atlas Shrugs website:
Inmates using newspaper's gun owner map to threaten guards, sheriff says
Published January 04, 2013
Law enforcement officials from a New York region where a local paper published a map identifying gun owners say prisoners are using the information to intimidate guards.
Rockland County Sheriff Louis Falco, who spoke at a news conference flanked by other county officials, said the Journal News' decision to post an online map of names and addresses of handgun owners Dec. 23 has put law enforcement officers in danger.
"They have inmates coming up to them and telling them exactly where they live. That's not acceptable to me," Falco said, according to Newsday. (Newsday is a Long Island and New York City newspaper).
Robert Riley, an officer with the White Plains Police Department and president of its Patrolman’s Benevolent Association, agreed.
"You have guys who work in New York City who live up here. Now their names and addresses are out there, too," he said adding that there are 8,000 active and retired NYPD officers currently living in Rockland County.
