Texas Newspaper Will Publish Names and Addresses of Police Officers

This is an unfortunate bit of news I’m sure you were not hoping to hear on the national holiday that is Super Bowl Sunday.

From FoxNews via WZ:

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.

“Like Ku Klux Klansman with hoods, [officers] do everything they can in order to protect their identities for fear of being brought to justice,” Zarriello said during a press conference the paper held on behalf of the Scott family, according to KENS 5.

“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.

How about that?

This newspaper is going out of its way to make sure that police officers are even bigger targets when they’re at home then when they’re on the streets protecting our communities.

Hopefully a lawmaker in Texas will put a halt to this ridiculous action immediately, and force an apology from the paper.
