Was this a case of the police harassing a citizen who finally decided not to take it anymore?..There are so many unreported cases of brutality in Beacon, so depending on the officer, would not be surprised at a heightened response.

Afew years ago my than boyfriend and I were at a main street resturant with a out of town relative when 2 beacon police officers approached us and had us stand against the wall when he said my boyfriend and I looked like the people who got off the local loop bus and throw rocks at it and didnt want to pay the fair. He search my than boyfriend to find nothing on him told me to shout up after I asked him why he was frisking my boyfriend in a rude manner and that we had just arrived there to get food. > Beacons force was just horrible and yet there are still some officers still on the fiorce that just shouldnt be there.

I hear you Beacon Citizen, they pretty much go out of their way to harass citizens, with impunity. Joe's comment is just silly and trying to get attention.
