I'm curious why Emily Stearns, Spencer Knight and James Hacker are all listed with felony charges awaiting pleas (neither Knight nor Hacker have posted bail, so they are still in a cell) on the CT.GOV web site but there is no record of Emily Taylor having any charges against her. Anyone why not?

Everything in the article is TRUE. But they also left a lot more out. Believe me, they all deserve what is coming to them. The Monroe cops did a great service to the community by throwing the book at them, especially self proclaimed tough guy SK. I hope SK is enjoying his new friends in jail.
well monroe PD, this hole story is true really? thats funny ill tell everything in this stroy thats not true "accused of hiring a homeless man and two local teenagers to assault" one homless man and one teen was hired, taylor from the beggin wasnt even sopossed to be there she was never going to do any harm at all, she wasnt even close to the fight at all. so there is the first lie. now your second lie "The victim, a 21-year-old man police said was beaten with baseball bats Wednesday" BATS??? thats funny cause there was only one baseball bat. lie number 3 "James Hacker, 19, of Redding; and Emily Taylor, 19, of Redding,"...james hacker is from easton and taylor is only 17.
"Police said Stearns told the others she wanted the man "especially hurt and humiliated." never said that she just wanted her stuff back that was taken. so how many lies are we at now 4 lies? yup 4...off to the 5th one "While Stearns watched, police said, the others began" taylor never began anything she was also watchin the hole time. " the others began beating the man until he fell to the ground" he got hit only once, but he still did fall to the ground. now to the last lie "Officers arrived on the scene while the beating was going on" they didnt arrive on the scene, they where under cover cops and they watched the whole thing go down. so mr. monroe PD no lies im pretty sure thats 7 lies right there. i still have more to say though about monroe PD, the undercover cops set the hole thing up this was a sting so they could get a drug dealer. they also saw knight and hacker walk behind the last drop with the bat, and then they saw knight and hacker walk up behind the man holding a baseball bat. they knew what was going to happen but chose to wait untill there "snitch" was hit......the man who was hit no one should really feel bad for. he was a meth head who was snitching people out to get less jail time. so now we have a meth head running the streets free while hacker and knight are facing jail time because they were standing up for a girl who got jumped by a meth head...im sorry but if you jump a girl your a little bitch end of story....to everyone standing up for the four of us thankyou but it is not needed, people can say what ever they want on the internet but i garntee not one of these people will ever say one bad thing to our face...and to Monroe PD, good cop work you have a meth head running the streets, while you have two girls who have never been arested and where about to go to college to better themselfs looking at jail time..the two boys also are lookin at jail time and have a clean record before this, so lets all hear it for monroe PD really good job guys keep up the good work. but really there no reason for me to be getting this mad about this and writing all of this because the truth is, its just funny because lets face the facts, your a cop......you dont get paid shit! my step father makes 5 times what they do in a year........you just got to live and learn in life. i hope the two girl do end up going to school and this didnt mess up there lifes.

Hey James, your grammer and sentence structure is perfect. If your stepfather makes 5 times what a cop makes in a year,(lets see Monroe cop average salary is about 50,000 with OT prob pushing 60 or 70) so he is making around 300,000 to 350K a year. With that type of money he should have gotten you a better education. He also should have warned you that you shouldn't hang out with methheads or people who set up hits, cause cleary that's what this was. All your "lies" that you said were made up, are in fact truths.

He only got beat once, not multiple times. One time is still assault you moron.

The number of bats used. It doesn't matter. One bat or ten bats. They were used to assault someone.

Ages? Really, you're upset that the CTPost and the Monroe PD made a mistake about ages. Get out of here.

Point blank, bats were used to attack someone, whether it be a meth head or someone who has never even seen a drug before.

Did the crime, now do the time. For real...stop trying to be a tough guy. And no one gives how much money your stepfather makes either, with all that money you think you would have some dignity...

Hey James, Do you think your moneybags step father would be happy to read your posts here? I bet the lawyer he's paying won't be happy with your rants. You should spend more time thinking about your court appearance and less time on this blog. You will be judged by the company you keep and SK has been in trouble with the law at least two times before. Create distance between yourself and these questionable friends of yours if you expect the judge to look favorably on you.

Not thugs or gangbangers? Of course not, you're from Easton not East Bridgeport.

But you and your friends did use poor judgement. And you blame the Monroe Police Department for ruining you and your friends lives. Please, the Monroe PD was doing there job. An assault occured, you were apart of it. There is no excuses. A bat was used to attack someone, a hit was set up.

Don't but the blame on a kid that may or may not be a drug addict. Sure he may be an addict, but he didn't do anything wrong here. If he was working for the police like you claim, it's because he is willing to risk himself and his family in order to save himself for doing hard time. That's what happens, its apart of the game that you and your friends tried to play. You got caught.

I think everyone knows "what you are". Spoiled, arrogant, stupid etc. for starters. Stop whining, take your punishment and make an attempt to conform to civilized societies rules.

i dont remember saying i couldn't do the time, you guys arnt even worth my time. like take some time and post something with some tought in it ok thanks.

laughing at monroe my point here is more, the police in these towns are not doing a good job. our tax doller should not be spent on under cover police officers, trying to bust teens in highschool for using marijuana. while at the same time there are schools that are holding town meetings begging for more money.

James --
You would be best to spend your time on something productive, like reading more and studing grammer and spelling. The tax dollars that have been spent on your education, seem to have been a waste. You graduated from high school? I thought that Joel Barlow did a better job than the one you're displaying.

Not only is your spelling and grammer subpar, your ability to make good decisions is seriously lacking. You were trying to help a girl who was taken advantage of? If you were really interested in helping this girl, you would counsel her to not engage in illegal behavior -- buying marajuana is ILLEGAL James. You're not helping someone if you're assisting them in an illegal act.

Get yourself on the right track. You will be judged by the friends you keep.

homless, you really have something agesnt me dont you, every post attacking me. why any reason really? you say i need to educate my self, thats about the only thing i agree with, and i graduated from barlow and i am going to enroll at ncc. english is really not my best class, o well i can admit my flaws, i suck at spelling and sometimes i tend to do stupid things, but one of my falws is not picking my friends. spencer knight is a great friend and has allways been there for me, that will never change. our dession making will though.
but let me make sure i understand you. you would rather spend your tax dollers on under cover offices offesting highschool student over marijuana, rather than spend it in schools or many other usefull things. if these offices do there job idealy then they will catch everyone who smokes pot. according to my heath teacher thatis about 40% of highschool students.
i really wonder why you keep atacking me? i dont even know who you are but you have something agesnt me obiously. why not just say what it is? stop hiding behind a name. and whats up with your name, spencer knight is not homless? yea hes not anymore he found a place to live, and im happy for him, but the time this took place he was moving house to house staying with friends, and that may be why he chose to do what he did, he was stuck between a rock and a hard place.
