If we put the poor victim and the STAMFORD person who did this together in a line and did not say who was who I bet anything I could point out the Criminal. I hope the poor lad who got attacked is OK. What was the Stamford teen doing here anyhow??? GLEN

Are people from Stamford banned from being in New Canaan?

Mr. Dunbar, but this is too easy for you. One person was punched and, we assume, the other did the punching. We must assume that both were not punching because the police did not arrest both. The police must have seen some damage to the victim, otherwise how could they tell who did what to whom? Maybe you have some other secret method. Please tell us if you do. There has been much work determining criminality by the bumps on criminals' heads. Was the perpetrator lumpy in the head? Also, sometimes criminals wear eye masks and have hats pulled down over their eyes to conceal their identities. Would that be your secret? You would look for special clothing? Now that Zira is out of commission, this job is trickier. Maybe Zira would bark more times at the puncher. One bark equals hello to victim and two barks is goodbye to the puncher. I have it. The puncher would be laughing and the punchee would not. Is that so? Please tell us your secret.

Emily good work following up on this story. Too many times after the initial story we never hear of an outcome. Anyone word on the Darien Suburban 9?
Emily Constance (Editor) July 24, 2012 at 03:19 AM
Thank you, Lisa. As of this morning, there was still no new information from police.

I guess I should have been clearer. Forgetting the scratches on the poor lads face. I was just pointing out that if both people were clean as a whistle I could still point out the bad buy vs the poor victim. Why are is is that some of you take the side of the criminal where as I feel sorry to the victim. Makes no sense at all politely speaking. Also, NO Stamford people are welcome here. I just meant trouble makers. You can ususally spot them out a mile away. GLEN

Glen, your comment makes me sick. It's people like you that give our town a bad name. There is no need to assume that just because this child is from Stamford that you would be able to "spot them out a mile away". You sir, are ignorant and probably racist if you think that these Stamford kids look any different & do you really believe that they attacked this kid unprovoked? "why are is is that some of you take the side of the criminal". it are is is because otherwise they are faced with the blind ignorance outlined in your ludicrous comments. I mean come on, am i the only one who sees how truly messed up it is that you believe that being from New Canaan guarantees that this kid is a poor distraught victim in this situation? I, for one, feel sorry for you Glen.

Mr. Aaronson, Glen sometimes punctuates in ways which obscure his meanings, which are themselves sometimes difficult to understand. For example if you put a comma after NO, the meaning changes entirely. He might have meant to say that no, it's OK for Stamford people to come here but not if they are troublemakers. In any event, he can explain this later if he wants.
Glen K Dunbar July 28, 2012 at 04:35 PM
I did forget the comma or semi colon. Sorry. It did read wrong. But, I still say that we not want troublemakers here. Moreover, how do we know the New Canaan Kid proved it. I would like him to post his side of the story here
Glen K Dunbar July 28, 2012 at 04:41 PM
I should also clarify. I said nothing about race. YOU did Mr. Jared. I only mean I can spot a trouble maker a mile away. Glen

you did not see what happened so how can you possibly spot who caused the trouble unless you have esp. Stop judging others less yee be judged. Take a long look befor pointing your finger.

I have been Judged in this miserable town ALL my life and made an example of. I have been forced to do what NO other has to do. I have been DENIED what NO other has been. I am the POOREST of the lot. The State is trying to cheat me out of my Husky-A for wife and daughter. So, I do not about being Judged. All I want is what is owed me. Glen
NC resident August 12, 2012 at 10:17 AM
than don't take your pain and sorrow out on others
Glen K Dunbar August 12, 2012 at 11:47 AM
I will continue my path till -A. My wife (who is diabetic) and daughter (who is a CHILD) are give back their FREE Husky-A HealthCare that this horrid State is hanging me out to dry on. -B I get 100% total freedom and away from my Mother who has/is ruin my life and is mostly the cause of why I write what I write. -C This town stops telling the child not to smoke while they smoke in front of the child and this is ALL directed at GLEN. -D This town stops trying to keep Glen away from the opera by not giving the help that is so needed and making Glen swim on his own when He CAN"T !!
