Section K: Violations, penalties, and appeals.
In order to effectively enforce all Community Rules, a penalty system for violations has been established. Violations of the rules will result in restrictions being imposed on Community Access producers who are responsible for the actions of their talent and crew members. Comcast will issue warnings and/or suspensions for either major or minor violations, and will do so verbally and/or in writing stating the nature of the violation and the penalty imposed.
1. Major violations of the rules governing Community Access will result in an immediate 90-day suspension of use of the Community Access facilities.
Since Tom Bennett has repeated violated the rules and guidelines of Comcast, the only remedy for this situation is to immediately terminate the contracts of Carol and Tom Bennett, cancel the BigT's Talk & Variety show, and ban all individuals associated with the show from the studios.
After you watch the footage, please add you name to the petition list and help place pressure on Comcast to do their job, enforce their own rules, put an end to people who place indecent, profane, racist language (as well as the promotion of unlawful conduct) on the public airwaves.
Local access is the PUBLIC'S channel so let Comcast know that the public has had enough of BigT's nonsense.

04.25.22 (RADIO): WSHU Latino group call on Connecticut lawmakers to open a Danbury charter school
06.03.22 (OP-ED): KUSHNER: "Career Academy ‘a great deal for Danbury"
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.
