With riots still going on in Ferguson, the New York Times publishes Darren Wilson's address

From Howard Kurtz over at Fox News:
The New York Times, whether consciously or not, has just endangered Darren Wilson’s life. 
With tensions running high in Ferguson over the lack of an indictment for Wilson’s killing of Michael Brown, the paper has published the officer’s approximate address -- the street and town where he lives with his new wife, who also is named. 
Given the racial animosity unleashed by Brown’s death, given the rioting and the looting and the stores that were set afire, how can a news organization make it easier for some crazy zealot to track down Wilson? 
But there it is in the paper: 
“Officer Wilson and [blank] own a home together on [blank] Lane in [blank], Mo., a St. Louis suburb about a half-hour drive from Ferguson.” 
I mean, why not add a locator map?  . . . .
