Two New York Times Reporters Posted Darren Wilson’s Home Address. Look Here To See THEIR Home Addresses.
Since the Grand Jury verdict in Ferguson, there have been riots, looting, assaults, guns fired and cars and businesses burned to the ground. Meanwhile, all the criminals and thugs doing this are baying for policeman Darren Wilson’s blood because they don’t like the fact he had his day in court and evidence wasn’t strong enough to bring the case to trial. So, in this violent environment, when the life of Darren Wilson and his new wife are in danger, the New York Times is attempting to impose the death penalty on him via newspaper by publishing his home address.
It was a disgusting, despicable, immoral act and the two reporters responsible, Julie Bosman and Campbell Robertson, deserve to lose their careers over what they did. Of course, this is the New York Times, so they’re unlikely to pay any sort of penalty. Still, I thought they deserved to pay a price.

New York Times reporters Julie Bosman and Campbell Robertson published the address of Darren Wilson in the New York Times so here are their addresses.
…It would be wrong, for example, to publish Bosman’s address at
5620 N WAYNE AVE APT 2
CHICAGO, IL 60660-4204
It would be similarly wrong to publish the address of Robertson, too.
1113 N DUPRE ST
NEW ORLEANS, LA 70119-3203
So why do journalists think they are beyond examination?
How does it advance the story to know where Darren Wilson and his newly wed live?
If these New York Times reporters are willing to put Darren Wilson’s address out there when it will unquestionably endanger his life, then they should have no complaints about the whole world knowing where they live. Like they say, what’s good for the goose, is good for the dirtbag New York Times reporters.
Update: The lefties over at the rumor debunking website Snopes have addressed this issue. Snopes is a decent website when it comes to non-political issues, but they habitually lean to the Left on politics. Their treatment of this issue is great example.
They do acknowledge that the New York Times wrote that, “Officer Wilson and Officer Spradling own a home together on Manda Lane in Crestwood, Mo., a St. Louis suburb about a half-hour drive from Ferguson. However, they say this doesn’t matter because Wilson isn’t there very often and because other papers published the information months ago.
That doesn’t change the fact that on the eve of riots, the New York Times published the street where Wilson lived. Was he there that night? Was his wife? Hopefully, they were far away, but we don’t know and neither does Snopes. Furthermore, just using the information the New York Times provided, it took me all of about 2 minutes to find his house with that information — in fact I could SHOW IT TO YOU with Google Street View if I wanted. Did they break it out as clearly as Gotnews did with the New York Times reporters? Nope, but they may as well have and for Snopes to try to spin that just because there are other liberals involved will only further undercut their already waning credibility on political issues.
