This Makes Perfect Sense
- A Texas newspaper announced its plans Saturday to publish the names and addresses of every San Antonio police officer following a deadly officer-involved shooting last week.
Stephanie Zarriello, publisher of the weekly tabloid San Antonio Observer, said Antronie Scott had been “unjustly murdered,” Fox San Antonio reported. She described Scott as being in “a position of surrender” when he was shot and killed on Feb. 4 by Officer John Lee, a 10-year veteran of the police force.
[...] "Just as the names and addresses of sex offenders are publicized in order to protect the public from their wicked behavior, we feel that our community has the right to the exact same level of protection," said Zarriello.
That didn't work out too well for New York Times reporter Julie Bosman who published Darren Wilson's address following his fully justified shooting of a felonious assailant in Ferguson. She demanded and was denied CPD protection, though we assume she would be more than welcome to qualify for a Concealed Carry license and buy her own gun (pending a criminal background check). We would certainly support and defend the San Antonio Police if they undertook a similar such effort.
