Burglars Go Straight to Gun Safe in Home Highlighted by the Journal-News' List of Gun-Owners

Police are investigating whether or not there was any connection between the map and the burglary.

Given that the robbers went straight for the gun-safe, it may seem as if the map informed them of the presence of guns in the house. Then again, that map would not have, of course, specified precisely where in the house the guns were, and yet the thieves went straight to them.

That bit suggests inside information, or opportunity to view the gun safe previously. In which case the map wouldn't be needed.

At the moment we don't know whether the Journal-News' map abetted this crime. Though it remains inarguable that the map could abet crime, and may abet future crime.

We also don't know about the more likely possibility -- that the map is being used to target homes without guns. It seems unlikely we'll ever know about that, as proving that would require the criminals to state "We picked the house because we knew it had no guns." I don't see any legal reason a prosecutor would ask about that, and as it's no legal defense (of course), I don't know why a criminal would offer that up. That is, the statement is important as regards a political/media controversy but isn't very important to the prosecutor trying to lock the guy up or to the criminal's legal defense, so I don't know how that would enter the record, or wind up being publicized.

In ten years, who knows, there might be a statistical analysis of crime in Westchester county which shows that the map did in fact inform criminals of their best targets. But that's a lot of years and a lot of data away.

One thing we do know, however: This anchorwoman really fills out a fuzzy sweater. Update: Emmy-worthy.

Huzzawhanow?
