'He Should Return With His Head Held High'

The day's most interesting comments from Patch users in your town and neighboring communities.

DARIEN: "While I am not a supporter of the OWS movement, it is not because I do not believe in what they stand for — it is because the movement fails to maintain a form of steady leadership (or trustworthy leadership at that), and has proven to be more of a burden than a benefit. It’s not even organized chaos at this point — just raw and disgusting chaos." This is one Darien Patch reader's response to a profile on ", who said that local police were brutal to her during an unrelated incident.
