Diane Dimond makes her case for victims of property crime having responsibility for criminals’ actions in the Northern Virginia Daily:
Any cop on the beat will tell you there’s a class of crooks who break into homes specifically looking for guns to steal. Please, don’t make it easy for them. Guns need to be stored in sturdy locked safes or bolted-down lockboxes, preferably unloaded and with ammunition kept in a separate location. Keep these safeguards in your bedroom if you are worried about nighttime intruders.
What other crime victims does Diane Dimond blame? Does she do that to rape victims? Do pretty young women have some responsibility not to dress up in skirts that are too short or clothes that are too attractive?
Do child sex abuse victims, like Michael Jackson’s, somehow bear some of the blame? Diane might know about that as part of her claim to fame involved covering Michael Jackson.
I don’t look to washed up, has-been hosts of Entertainment Tonight or Hardcopy for tips on personal safety any more than I ask my mechanic for prostate surgery options. Diane Dimond should stay in her lane regarding topics about which she doesn’t know jack. And she needs to quit playing “blame the victim,” too.
