amen CELTS79. It is hard to chase a criminal down if you can not tie your own shoes. I say that being way over weight but I am not applying for the job either. I think police officers should be fiit for the job. I also strongly think that we need a police department. Fairfax could be self sufficient and a wonderful place to live if we keep up with the times. I love it here but for those very same reasons I can see it changing very quickly. When drugs and crimes are on the rise, we should also be on the rise. As far as the opinion of the previous selectboard member, it is what it is. It is beyond a choice or option now. It is now a fact. We need help and serious help. I notice more and more "different cars and people" coming into town and not just driving through. I do not know everyone but after living here for awhile you recognize. They do not look like the typical "new in town" folks. If we all took pride in fairfax we could do wonders. This is not just a place to live but a large part of our lives. After all, we do pay for it so why not take good care of it. Especially if we want to spend the rest of our olives here. The investment is worth it.

I wonder how many people demanding more and local police coverage are doing so to alleviate themselves from getting involved (taking steps to help protect themselves, watching out for neighbors homes when they are gone, picking up the phone to report suspisious activities, etc.).  THAT my friends is the FIRST line of defense and keeping our neighborhood safe.
More cops MIGHT help deter some crime, but, they have rules to obey which limit what they are able to do with respect to preventing crime, and catching people after the fact.

No witnesses + no evidence = nobody held accountable

FAHC confirms he is in Intensive Care Unit, but only family can get specifics.

I'd also like to add that neither the Franklin County Sheriff's Department
nor the Vermont State Police are responsible for this horrific incident.

Those responsible are unknown to us, at this time.

Sorry, Drew, my friend, maybe it was your twice commenting on their cell phone use.
or maybe it was this statement from another poster:
"What you have patrolling the streets here (and the Town pays through the nose for it) is a bunch of over weight, under educated, poorly trained, under paid Sheriffs who could care less about the Town and it's residents, simply because (but not the only reason)  they don't reside here."

Take Care & God Bless,

Also remember that said patrols would have to generate revenue. they are not just going to be there looking for drug dealers. thats going to mean more speeding tickets, more failure to stops, more tailgating etc. etc. they will be looking for ways to make money.

I like the WAY Special Ed thinks.  I vote for Special Ed for anything he is running for.

Oh, about the Town Police ....  Where shall we build the jail that we are going to need in order to house all these criminals?  Next to the Rec Path or the School?  So now we have a staff of at least 6-fulltime police at a salary of $50,000/person ($300,000); at least 2-police cars ($60,000) one has to be a 4x4; Police Station $250,000; plus health insurance, education, vacation time, workers comp, and maintenance on the cars and building that is just $800,000.00 to START that the Town would need to begin with having a Police Department.

Westford doesn't have a Police Department nor does Cambridge or Jeffersonville.  There are other options here like requesting the Selectboard to require a different expectation from our current Police coverage.  We need to develop Watch Groups and most importantly we need to break the cycle of being a BEDROOM Community!

I have not read word for word all of the posts here but I do know that the victim will know who these thugs were when he comes around. I also know that the Police that used him as an informant are working the case. They just are not letting on.

I also know that I like Ed's idea.

An armed society is a polite society.
Pack em if you got em.

Sad thought, but a fact of life.

The police cannot be everywhere all of the time.

Andy is out of ICU, and is doing well.  His 8hour surgery went well.  Rebecca had to change her number so it is no longer in service.  Just wanted everyone to know that Andys surgery went well and he is out of ICU and is doing well.  Thank you for all of you that were concerned about him, he greatly appreciates all the prayers and thoughts.
