New York Times reporter Julie Bosman endangered the life of Darren Wilson and his pregnant wife, when she publicized the name of the street where the couple lives. Protesters were already targeting the white police officer, after his on-duty shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown on August 9.

Now, Bosman, as well as another involved colleague, Campbell Robertson, have both received an epic dose the karma. The pair have had their own addresses exposed. GotNews reported:
New York Times reporters Julie Bosman and Campbell Robertson published the address of Darren Wilson in the New York Times so here are their addresses.
GotNews.com strenuously objects to publishing the addresses of individuals who are being targeted with death threats.
GotNews.com published the address of Ebola patient Nina Pham so that people could avoid going to her Dallas apartment.
But it would also be wrong to publish the addresses of journalists without their consent.
It would be wrong, for example, to publish Bosman’s address at
5620 N WAYNE AVE APT 2
CHICAGO, IL 60660-4204
It would be similarly wrong to publish the address of Robertson, too.
1113 N DUPRE ST
NEW ORLEANS, LA 70119-3203
So why do journalists think they are beyond examination?
How does it advance the story to know where Darren Wilson and his newly wed live?
In response, Bosman complained that her safety was being threatened and requested top-tier protection from the Chicago police. “She came in thinking she was Steven Spielberg or something shooting a movie,” one police department source was quoted as saying. “The police laughed at her,” the source concluded.
