I filed a complaint Saturday morning against all three of the officers who detained me.
An interesting thing happened when I approached the desk/dispatch officer (James Shake Jr.) to make the complaint. He tried to ID me.
I found this incredibly odd and I told him so. He replied he needed to get my driver's license and 'run it' before he could call a supervisor in to take my complaint. It was 'policy' of course.
Naturally, I said no, I would not be IDed just to file a complaint. That is just ridiculous. They still gave me the forms which I filled out and submitted to Master Sergeant Robbert van der Horst.
Luckily I recorded the whole event. I will post it as soon as I truncate the rest of the day's adventures.
What is going on with Old Saybrook PD?
