as an aside, I have a suspicion that the mother was involved and has some shared responsibility, like she was supposed to drop the kid at daycare, so the father never thought to look for the kid. Just sayin' View Comment
Parents are punished enough by the outcome...he killed his child. That is a life sentence already, that he will carry. I do not see a need for society to take it upon themselves to punish him for his actions, why so he won't do it again? View Comment
Best story ever, except the police got it wrong. The 21 yr old aggressor should have been charged. Just because the outcome was not expected, should not get him off. He was wrong, wrong, wrong. He caused problems and he caused the fight. He and his buddy are the only ones wrong and they were not charged but should have been. View Comment
Racial profiling should be a useful tool to solve crimes, instead the group that commits the most crimes now has an effect tool to undermine police work.
If a certain trait correlates with a certain behavior, that should be a helpful guide. That does NOT mean it is the only basis, but it should be helpful.
If 6' white women committed the most shoplifting, then it makes sense to keep a closer eye one them. Only an idiot would not, and only an idiot would not look at others as well. It is a tool, an input, it is not the sole basis. View Comment
And as usual police in no hurry to open lanes for public. They should bulldoze that p.o.s. to the side and get things moving, not creat a huge buffer zone for themselves. Ans PLEASE do not start with that officer safety crap. View Comment
1. Title is misleading. Darien residents are for the tower, a vocal minority, primarily abutters, are the few that are opposed to the tower.
2. The selectman should NOT write any such letter. When acting as the selectman Ms. Stevenson should represent the town of Darien and not a few friend. View Comment
