Cant be as bad as 3 officers working day and night for 4 months to stand in the road while a construction crew of 20+ stand around a 5 foot hole while one or two guys connect a pipeline. Must be a massive budget there.

tjc, those cops you refer to are not paid from Milford's budget. Rather, it's overtime paid for by the contractors who are digging in the street.

I know that, either way something stinks, most likely someones is getting a kickback, there is no way they needed all that coverage, anyone that drove by there everyday can tell you that.

The Internet is quite a powerful tool which has provided humankind with two things. 1: Becoming a medium in sharing information globally. 2: The unfortunate discovery of an unevolved human beings who are incapable of rational thought or communication skills, but who are surprisingly capable of estabiishing online user accounts .

Oh my, this happened to me as well. My fiance and I were involved in an argument. He pushed me. I grabbed hold of his shirt to avoid loosing my balance. Two hours later (yes, two hours) he decides to call the police and to my shock and surprise the female officer arrested me for "assault on a family member". Apparently my nail had scratched his chest. I was locked up, confused as to HOW this was possible. The officer never read me my rights. I am a mother of two, never in any legal difficulties until now. I face up to 12 months in jail, and fine up to $2,500. Police never saw the so called injury, it literally was a scratch so tiny and superficial. This is a nightmare!
