shameful that Stoughton gets press like this.

David Cohen and his antics have adversely affected property values in this town. When he is released I hope he moves, far, far away.

Oh please! The real estate has been going down for the last year or so. Why should he have to move? If anything, you should move and anyone else who's so miserable. This is crazy! Now people are going to start blaming David for their failures in life. I hope David never moves and I hope he gets his job back and most of all his life back. I'm praying for you David that justice will prevail.

David will never get his job back as a police officer.

He has cost the town millions in lawsuits and joint with slectmen. He and these antics have raised Stoughtons insurance rate by 85% and have cost the town $250,000 yearly seeing as they are on paid leave, 3 years and counting.

David deserves nothing dirty cops like him should get much harsher sentences then even the average civillian.
