There is a father grieving over the loss of his ENTRE family. The last thing he needs is for his neighbors and residents jumping to conclusions about the motives behind the tragedy because of the media is grasping at anything to report on since the city only released a brief statement as opposed to holding a press conference.
As someone who was ON THE SCENE yesterday and was in CONSTANT contact with the police department while awaiting a statement, there is NO evidence that his matter had ANYTHING to do with the tragedy...none.
Out of respect for the grieving family members, the media should do the right thing and inform readers that THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT THE DAY CARE OPERATION IS CONNECTED TO THE INCIDENT.

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.
