@Innocent Bystander, maybe you should be arrested for making accusations to Mrs. Wells state of mind or if she was on something, those accusations could find you with a lawsuit! Do you know Mrs. Wells that you know for a fact the cops have been there? How do you know she uses her hands? Just because you use a name like "Innocent Bystander" little research can make it very easy to know who you really are!

Mike-I believe this person is somehow linked to FBPD. They are either a paper pusher, who sees bits and pieces, and/or maybe accesses privaledge information that shouldn't be. Maybe someone I went to school with, who is a hater, or a spouse of one of the officers. I am amazed at how people are so quick to bite on someone for a crime they don't even know how took place. Once this happens, they forget ALL the years of good you have done for the community. Did they mention how I have volunteered at the hospital for a couple of years? Reading books to the terminally ill, or elderly that may not be capable. I have also spent time playing bingo at two of the bigger nursing homes in Freehold, which I actually still do, on occasions. Do they talk about a very personal stay that I had with my daughter at Children's hospital of Philadelphia, and got involved during and after, spending fun time with the children that are so ill? I have NEVER been convicted of ANY crime, and actually,recently helped the PD with some community clean up. In any event, I think this person is miserable and bored with themselves, that they feel comfort in hashing out at someone else's defect. How would "innocent bystander" know who called the cops from my resident? How would "innocent bystander" know I "use my hands"? How would "innocent bystander" know anything about my personal life? I think it is pathetic and sad this person doesn't find something more constructive to do.

Michelle, I agree with you 100%. I certainly don't know the facts of what happened on the date above in the article. There are only a few people that know all the facts, they are all the parties involved. With all due respect to you, if you did do any of the above listed in the article then you should face the punishment that comes with it. I am a HUGE believer in innocent until proven guilty. I was unhappy with the article because, in my opinion, it painted a picture of guilt without telling both sides, which is the medias responsibility. That is the biggest problem in America, people are TOLD by the media what to believe and we lose or own sense of making a judgement for ourselves. We become sheep to what they want us to believe. As far as your story goes, I hope the truth comes out, regardless of what party is telling it. There are good and bad in all people, that doesn't mean cops, judges or anyone is exempt from that fact. If you were wrongly accused or mistreated, that is not ok and should be handled accordingly. Too me, innocent bystander seems like a jealous person who is hiding behind a name to attack a person as if he/she doesn't have any skeletons in his/her closet. Like i said, I don't know who is right or wrong in your situation but I can tell you innocent bystander is 100% wrong in my book. A simple click on his name, shows he has never commented on anything but your topic???? makes you think, doesn't it?

Innocent Bystander, I think you are very close to slander or libel (not sure of the difference but you get my point). Your post is not cool at all. My post was more out of frustration because I did something similar years ago to a cop and paid for it and I hate to see someone like Michelle who does seem like a nice and smart young woman have to go through the same stuff I did. I put my post harshly and that's another fault of mine sometimes. But your post Innocent Bystander is really uncalled for. Nobodys perfect and everyone makes more than one misatke in life.
