Officer Jason Anderson, Milford Police Department, Milford, Connecticut. Up in New England, Jason Anderson, a cop formerly working for the Milford city government’s police department, served and protected the public by tearing down a city street at 94 miles per hour, with no lights or sirens on, sideswiping a car and killing two 19 year olds named David Servin and Ashlie Krakowski. Officer Jason Anderson was not responding to an emergency call at the time; he just felt like getting wherever he was going at 94 miles per hour. Since then, the Milford city government’s police department discovered dash cam videos of another government cop, Officer James Kiely, driving over 100 miles per hour on city streets at least 3 different times. Officer James Kiely was given a five (5) day vacation from his government job; I’m sure that if you or I were caught on tape driving 113 mph three different times, the Milford city government would be equally forgiving. Meanwhile, R. Bartley Halloran, the lawyer for David Servin’s family, filed a Freedom Of Information request for video records of city police cruisers going back to 2006, in order to determine whether or not there was a pattern of reckless driving by the Milford city government’s police. He got a handful of videos, dating from before the accident, which show Milford cops repeatedly driving over 85 miles per hour on city streets. The videos are public records, but Halloran never got most of the tapes that he had a right to review, because they’d been
unintentionally deleted by Lieutenant Dan Bothwell. Oops! The Milford Police Department takes this kind of thing seriously, of course, so they gave Lt. Dan Bothwell a one (1) day vacation from his job.
