- Living Free In The 603
What a douche.
A Reading selectman member is apologizing for an anti-police comment he made during Tuesday evening’s board meeting.
I'd like to know exactly what other towns he can drive around where the cops don't have guns ???“As an elected select board member, I’m feeling pretty intimated by the police officers in this crowd,” Andrew Friedmann said during a discussion on the hiring of a new police chief.
That led to laughter from those attending the meeting, which included around two dozen police officers.
“You laugh at that, you think this is funny, but I have to live in this town and all of you drive around town with guns,” Friedmann replied.
An audible gasp from the crowd was heard before all of the police officers walked out of the room.
