Check this comment out from the News-Times article
"Sex offender letter ready for Danbury parents"

They should also insert a side note warning how the city can't keep the spics out. These animals care about following laws about as much as sex offenders.
Offended by the comment, this reader post the following complaint.

You seriously need to somehow block this boughton58, or boughton85 from ever posting again. I'm amazed of how much hatred gets displayed on this website. It's borderline scary. Please i'm asking you delete this idiot.
Boughton58 isn't the first jackass to post this type of hate-speech crap on the site and probably won't be the last as the News-Times website is a favorite among the xenophobes who cruise anti-immigration forums across the Internet.

This is also par-for-the-course when it comes to the language used against the immigrant community in Danbury by those who should be considered the bottom of the food-chain (trust me, I'm not as surprised as many who are not from the area who are reading this garbage for the first time).

As the major newspaper is Danbury, the News-Times has an obligation to filter this type of crap from their site and terminate xenophobes like Boughton58 or just get rid of the comment section all together and go back to the old format where the keyboarding brigade who make up for 90 percent of the posts in the comment section are forced to take their rants back to the forums.

Hopefully, Elizabeth Putman will put the axe to Boughton58 and the other jerks who post hate-speech and give Danbury a bad name.

UPDATEBoughton58 takes his hate to a new level.

Don't change the subject ALC. Danbury is infested with mongoloid half-niggers.

Contact The Danbury News-Times and ask them why condone/allow hate-speech on their site.

UPDATE: 10:15 A.M The News-Times got the message and the offensive remarks were finally deleted. The underlying problem is that unfortunately, Boughton58 is symbolic of most bigots in the area who express their true feelings behind closed doors (or under the cloak of a screenname). Hopefully, the newspaper will take the necessary steps to filter out offensive language and terminate accounts like Boughton58. If not, then the comments section should be scraped all together and the paper should return to the old "forums" format like other papers in the state.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
