The paper hires armed security guards for its offices. I’ve retired from this story but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the irony. Someone should ask the paper whether it is also providing armed guards for the abused women who were hidden from their tormentors until the Journal disclosed their addresses.
I’m guessing not.
UPDATE: It occurs to me that those private security guards must by law all have pistol permits. Those of them who reside in Westchester, Dutchess and Putnam counties are the very people Journal News publisher Janet Hasson “outed” as social misfits and dangerous people, too dangerous (or perhaps unworthy?) to be trusted to defend their own lives or those of their neighbors. But they’re entirely suitable to protect Janet and her staff – how is that? She’d better hope that her evaluation of them was wrong because if they’re really as crazy as she claims they are, she’s probably in trouble, right now.
