    I just have to wonder if people read the blotter sometimes and if they have any common sense. I can’t count how many times I’ve seen someone have things stolen from them when they’ve left their doors unlocked or the keys in the ignition. I’m not blaming the victim; I blame the thief. But, you just have to protect your stuff better, people.

      Technically you SHOULD be able to walk down the street in a bad neighborhood counting a fist full of hundred dollar bills without being robbed, but is that what you would expect to happen? Nope!

    I guess the people listed in the blotter do not have common sense. To Carrie Watson – Common sense is not a gift, it’s a punishment. Because you have to deal with everyone who doesn’t have it.

      Common sense is not so common.

      • Joe Smith

        So I guess it should be called uncommon sense. HA!

    I thought the dj got attacked on a Tuesday night not on a Wednesday.also,thought it was with a man not a woman that physically attacked. i have no idea if CT misprint..again or is the victim,holding back more of the truth&going after an innocent man? in the long run..’this is what happens when you work in a bar’ now i can throw those words right back at the same person who told me those words,at one time,when i was put in my situations,in the past.
