Only in Print: Selectmen sue former police officer over training

BRENTWOOD – Danville selectmen want one of their former police officers to pay roughly $5,500 to cover his police training, after the officer allegedly broke a three-year employment contract to go work for another police department, according to a lawsuit.

The statement are true. It is to recoup the monies the Town of Danville invested into the officer who has not fulfilled his signed contract obligation to the Town.

I can't imagine why he wouldn't want to work for our efficiently run town.

Are you saying you agree with this person breaking his contract? Granted I don't know all the details, but on the surface if a contract was broken there are consequences for doing so.

That is half the reason this country is in such a bind and we ended up with bank bailouts. I'm referring to mortgage bailouts. When an adult enters into a signed contract he/she needs to live up to the agreement they made.

There you are again putting words in my mouth. Well as long as you didn't stray from the topic and go off on some tangent about how the Country is in shambles and the terrible bailouts, and how terrible people are for loosing their jobs in a terrible economy and defaulting on their mortgage payments... oh wait, oops.

Well it's a good thing you didn't use it as an opportunity to comment on how you feel that the town is inappropriately spending money....oh wait, oops. :roll:

Actually, I had not mentioned anything of the sort in this thread, clearly you have an issue with paying attention to detail. " :roll: "

Do you even read your own posts? I think it's safe to infer the dig against town spending in your comment that is clearly dripping with sarcasm.

I do read my posts and admire them often. I have a mastery of the English language and my sentence are nearly as handsome as I am. You would do well not to infer my tones and assume hidden meaning behind my gorgeous text. After all, "you know what happens when you assume."

Is your arm getting tired from patting yourself on the back?

Who do you think your kidding? Please tell us all exactly what you meant by you post. Prove me wrong.

Not yet, I've been working on my endurance.

I can't think of a simpler way for me to convey that sentence to you that doesn't involve me holding your hand and sounding out the words.

If nobody objects, I'll return to the topic at hand. :-)

Will the town also recover its legal fees if it prevails? Any idea how much?
