Maureen, I read the police logs almost daily, as well as the comments. People who come here legally don't get a license handed to them with citizenship, yet the names remain very foreign sounding, so it's not fair to assume they are all illegal based on the fact that they have a foreign name and no license. I wish that when the illegal people get arrested, regardless of what for, that the law was enforced for being illegal, but we'd have to actually have a law for that. So, until then, I focus on the issue and what we have to work with. Accept the things you can not change, change the things you can. jim, Before you even say it, posting borderline racist comments on a local blog isn't changing things. It's just annoying the townies.

@Shannon.....You said about me. Before you even say it, posting borderline racist comments on a local blog isn't changing things. It's just annoying the townies" My comments about illegals is in line with the Govt.s stand and all logical people who see it's wrong. This has nothing to do with racism. never did, never will, how about tossing that erroneous viewpoint away.. Racism is a hate for people because who they are, not what they do. So I can hate anyone I want who break the law, and be justified. Laws are made to punish the actions NOT the people. I personally have never met a true blown racist, but I've met plenty of people who hate lawbreakers. Jim@ccfiile.com

Shannon, Based on your posting below I would like to respectfully clarify my posting above. I do not assume someone is here legally or illegally based on their name. Milford does not have public transportation and for most people living here driving is a necessity. So it would seem that anyone who was eligible for a drivers license would likely obtain one. Citizenship is not required for a license, however you do have to be in the country legally. So even if someones name is Smith or O'Brien, if they are driving without a license I am going to wonder why they do not have a license and wonder if they are here legally. For me it has nothing to do with the name, or race and everything to do the fact that they are driving without a license. And regardless of whether they never got a license, could not get a license or had it suspended... they should not be driving. It is a frightening fact that we have so many unlicensed drivers on the roads in Milford on a daily basis.

"An officer arrested Anthony Bernard Benson,17, on charges of operating under the influence of liquor, leaving the scene of property damage, leaving the scene of personal injury, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and furnishing false name and or social security number"...yup lets get him he must be illegal since he is old enough to have a license.
