I think they absolutely should. Maybe a group class A suit. It's voilation of privacy and reckless endangerment of people and their families. Sue them for every last dime and put the paper administration on the street. Where they'll need a gun.That is REALLY bad...people are completely unbelievable...This is the same type of garbage that Google and Paypal do with taking sides and crap talking firearms and gun rights...It's completely unprofessional, bad business, and just wrong. Freedom of Information Act or not, that newspaper had NO right to exploit these good citizens.
If I were one of these people, I would most certainly take HARSH legal action against them. While the Freedom of Information Act gave that reporter/publisher the right to ask and know, it does NOT give them the legal ability to make it publically known. When they published the information, they violated these people's privacy. What they did is illegal. It amazes me how many people in this world are completely incompetent.
Don't be shy, Verteidiger. Tell us how you really feel! :grin:Just another reason to stay away from New York. That state is an utterly miserable place to live -- concrete jungles, overcrowded, filthy, over-priced, crappy weather 75% of the year, etc.
A bunch of latte-sipping fashion-conscious apartment-dwelling scooter-riding cubicle-occupying subway-jockey metrosexuals (or worse) are not going to tell me how I should live my life.
Nor are any suburbs-hiding fake-pearl-wearing mini-van-driving cocktail-party-planning soccer mommies going to either, and that goes double for their girly-man domesticated-male husbands.
