The security surrounding these events are vigilantes. So are the Foxboro police. My girl friend was nabbed for barely stumbling in the ticket line, breathalyzed, handcuffed and detained for nothing more than having a good time. I was told to move on or join her. I joined her. For the next 6 hours I received inhumane treatment that the Foxboro police all to enjoyed. Law suit coming. The only motivation I can see from this vigilante behavior by security and police is an attempt to justify their overtime salaries. They have to round up enough individuals to justify the overstaffed event. Protective custody is a joke. I was detained in a cell with a man who had spent one year in jail for attempted murder for stabbing someone 8 times. There were plenty of other innocent people like me in this lockup. tdttn@yahoo.com
