A Real Newspaper Rises From The Ashes In Bristol, CT


March 10, 2009

To the Bristol Police Department:

Under the state Freedom of Information law, I hereby request the opportunity to review the following records:

A record of all police calls to 132 George St. since March 5, 2009.

911 calls between 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 6, 2009.

Any accident reports connected to the death of 14-year-old Henry Waye, Jr. on March 6, 2009 on George St.

Any records concerning the transportation of anyone from George Street to Bristol Hospital on March 6, 2009.

Any portions of the PR-1 report from the START team that are complete.

Beyond that, I ask for any and all public records about the accident that took the life of Henry Waye, Jr that are in your possession or control, regardless of where they are stored, whether they are in the police department or an office, home or other computer. These would include any documents that mention Henry Waye, Jr of Hull Street, Logan Costante of George Street, or Robert Park of 132 George St.

I request as well that you act promptly to fill this request. There is no need to wait until everything is complete. I am more than happy to review it as the material is made available.

In addition, because this information is crucial to the public interest and of widespread interest to the community, I hereby request a waiver of any and all fees. Keep in mind, too, that I am asking to review them, not necessarily to obtain copies.

I want you to know that the newspaper will vigorously argue against any attempt to charge for this information. This is a case that clearly meets the criteria for having fees waived.

I appreciate the work that will go into getting this together. I look forward to seeing it soon.
