Public service announcement

Cyndee Royle tries out her gun?

Cyndee Royle tries out her gun?

Reader Greenitch sends along this story: Publisher and junior editor of Journal News have both introduced weapons into their neighborhoods: parents beware.

The Rockland County Times confirms that guards were hired and remain posted in front of the homes of Journal News President Janet Hasson and Journal News Executive Editor Cynthia Lambert, alias CynDee Royle.

I find it amusing that cops and most security guards consider guarding these two nitwit “scab duty” and are refusing to do it. Let the bold crusaders buy their own guns, rather than hire others who own their own. And there’s this:

In the driveway of Lambert/Royle’s home in a middle class White Plains neighborhood a man was sitting guard in a vehicle registered to Nikola Dukel of 134 Lake View Avenue in West Harrison. The Rockland County Times was able to run the plates on his 2002 Toyota Camry and confirm this information.

Dukel is listed as a licensed pistol permit holder. He is in fact listed on the Journal News gun-map registry, albeit as Nikola Vukal.

Dukel did not confirm he was working for “private security.” He told the newspaper pointedly, “I’m just here.” Nikola is not listed as a licensed  NYS armed guard or NYS security guard.

I wonder if Cyndee thoroughly vetted her protector or just grabbed the first strong man with a gun and begged him for protection? Sure hope those neighborhood kids are safe from Mr. Dukel’s inherent capacity to go on an insane shooting rampage.

    Aren’t there two types of pistol permits, one to own, the second, more difficult to obtain, to carry? Do these security guards have legal carry permits?

    Appears may have been one of your other valued readers … as that was not posted by me … none the less interesting though

  3. This will make your day! NYT idiots try to defend the JN. Read the whole article.

    Excerpt:

    .WHITE PLAINS — Local newspapers across the country look for stories that will bring them national attention, but The Journal News, a daily nestled in a wooded office park in a suburb north of New York, may have gotten more than it bargained for.
    ************************************************************
    “As journalists, we are prepared for criticism,” Ms. Hasson said, as she sat in her meticulously tended office and described the ways her 225 employees have been harassed since the article was published. “But in the U.S., journalists should not be threatened.” She has paid for staff members who do not feel safe in their homes to stay at hotels, offered guards to walk employees to their cars, encouraged employees to change their home telephone numbers and has been coordinating with the local police.
    *********************************************************

    Read the rest. Their timeline for publishing the article is discussed. It’s a hoot.
