“The Affiliated Police Association of Westchester County Inc. is putting The Journal News on notice that we will hold [them] accountable for any incident where any of our over 25,000 members are involved with an incident where a criminal or ex-con presents themselves at the residence of one of our members as a result of their name being made public by [their] newspaper,” said Buckley.
looks like they just poked a stick into a real hornet's nest
let the lawsuits begin
Why only "their" members? Doesn't the rest of the law abiding public matter?
I guess you didn't read any of my other posts
I think this is as irresponsible as posting the names of medical marijuana users, or people who have legal permission to take morphine as a result of diagnosed pain
it is a map of what to steal
however, the police union have the clout to make this paper stop and in addition, pull their irresponsible map
if that's what it takes, then everyone benefits
I just found this on the site of the retired police officer's site:
[link to www.wcragroup.com
Many retired law enforcement officer reside in Putnam County and when they retire they must apply for a gun permit like everyone else in order to carry a weapon. Should these law enforcement officers have their personal information and home addresses placed online readily available for criminals or ex-cons to view?
What happens when one of these individuals find the address of retired law enforcement officers who they may have had an interaction with?
Do they now target them and their family?
The posting of this vitally private information online is dangerous and could cost someone their life because of the information being made public.
The Journal News should be more responsible and cease any further action to have the names of law abiding citizens who happen to have a legal permit to own a gun placed online and in their newspaper.
What purpose does it serve to post this information online and make public, what point is the Journal News trying to make?
