Oh yeah! Joey Chalifoux. This is the same kid who broke into a cops home at 16, stole the cops gun, filed off the serial number then put it to the head of another kid in Lowell who he was mad at. Sounds like a quality person to me!!

I know this guy. Use to be good friends with him....until I realized he sues people for a living. I love how the paper quoted him as working in the sales industry - what a crock of $%&!! He sued his old employer (from 3 years ago) for wrongful termination, just to name 1 and has not worked a day since (well unless if you call selling illegal steroids a job). there are many many more. get online people and do your research if you dont believe me. this is all public knowledge. This guy should get a JOB like the rest of us and catch up on ALL the child support he owes - How do you spell LOSER?? JOE CHALIFOUX

Hate on the cops all you want fellas, but to echo a few other people who actually know Joe... He is a complete scumbag. The person above is 100% right, he has 2 jobs: selling steroids and frivolous lawsuits. He sues EVERYBODY!!! So hate all the cops all you want, but know that you're dead wrong on this one. Joe Chalifoux is a disgusting human being, ask anyone from Dracut.

Just for the record, I know this "victim" and he is a total fraud! He is involved in many court cases right now and has been arrested MANY times for assault and domestic assault (even on his own mother). He is very good at doing what he does but everything he does is fradulant. Also the "salesperson" thing is pretty funny seeing as he has been unemployed for longer than I know and is upwards towards $40k in child support debt. Hopefully this case is thrown out of court!!!

Probably shortly after they met a cop who lied about so many things it became impossible to even tell if we knew his real name.

To all the ladies out there - I dated this scumbag a few years ago and lets just say I wish I knew then what I know now and someone had taken the time to warn me about him. Fortunately, I got out of the relationship and have no attachments to him what so ever. He takes steriods and becomes extremely vicious. I was too afraid to file a restraining order on him, but found out recently that other girls were not. Dont be a victim and date this loser. tell all your friends!! BTW, he hasnt lived in Pelham, NH in years.....not sure why the LS is saying he lives there.

Neither I nor my people have any knowledge of this situation. But, the Lowell Police acted stupidly. In an attempt to rectify this situation, I would like to sit down with Proffessor Chalifoux and Officer Panek to have a beer and see if we can work this out. Oh, Chalifoux isn't a professor? He didn't go to Harvard with me? That doesn't matter. I'd like to say that he was. So, he was. Once I come back from my vacation - Not this one, but the next one, I would like to have this sit down.

Make no mistake, my people and I have been working tirelessly on this and I have visited all 57 states and have 2 more to go. I don't think that my people will let me go to Alaska and Hawaii though. We have been working toward an unprecedented resolution for this and although the resolution isn't complete and none of us have read it, we will pass it anyway. Because, it's better to have something than it is to have nothing.

If it wasn't for the previous administration, this would be a non-issue. We have inherited this issue for which I have no information. But, bear with me My people, when this issue gets resolved, it's all me. But, until then, it's Bush's fault.
Thank you and Goodnight.

The problem with sights like this is that CHARLES PANEK can go onto it, log in as multiple users and leave nasty comments making it look like there are numerous people who think this guy is a bad guy. Thats unfortunate. But the one fortunate thing is that the IP addresses of everyone who posts a comment is logged by Topix and Topix is cooperative under federal law to any subpoenas, say the kind of subpoenas to find out who is posting slanderous things against others or making multiple posts under different names.

I've done some research on this guy as I am also from Dracut, albeit a few years older. Held a gun to his friends head? Assaulted his mother? Sells steroids?$40 k in child support owed? It's simply not true. Complete fabrications. It makes one think that Charlie here may be trying to wage a personal war. Another guy posted "how is it he sprayed himself in the face when your finger can only be inserted one way"? Well then why are there witnesses that say that he did? C'mon people, don't hide behind your anonymity! Say who you are!

The one thing I did find is that yes, this guy has a restraining order on him. But I also went on to find that the case was dismissed and the order vacated against him and then the girl who had filed it was subsequently arrested for felony stalking against him. So is that girl who says "watch out ladies" still mad at him because he didn't want to date her anymore and made her look like a fool in court?

Truth is, this cop is a bad cop. He screwed up and then tried to cover it up. Did anyone get the police report? Does anyone see where he says he was "contaminated with oc spray in the struggle"? To call spraying himself in the face being "contaminated in the struggle" is laughable. This cop is a liar. According to the suit, witnesses say he sprayed himself and then even the crowd. So all you defenders, you think a host of witnesses are lying and its all a conspiracy? You believe the booking tapes were "accidentally deleted" and the LPD didn't try to cover up their denial of medical care? Or because this cop is a "war vet" that he has some free pass to assault people and hide behind his badge? Its cops like this that give good cops a bad name. Nice work Colombo! Maybe next time you should listen to the witnesses and not assault and arrest the guy that all the witnesses tell you was the victim and was trying to help!

Chief William Hart, Londonderry NH Police Department

Recently we were made aware the Chief of Police in Londonderry was violating state law relative to the issuance of pistol licenses.

He was requiring photo documentation of who you are, in direct violation of the law, which states: "No photograph...shall be required".

He also stated licenses would be issued or denied in 14 "business days" not the 14 calendar days allowed by statute.

To get your license, the Chief was also requiring an additional form be signed, also not permitted under state law.

The NH Firearms Coalition took action to stop his abuse of power. JR Hoell, Board Member and Secretary of NHFC, scheduled a meeting with the Selectmen and informed the town of the violations of the law.

NHFC then worked with the Police Chief to draft a new policy for issuing licenses.

Tammy, you clearly have never watched Bugs Bunny. He used to say "what a maroon!" all the time.

I feel much stupider now for having even corrected someone on this on a meaningless website.
