"Town officials declined to release full copies or details of the complaints, commendations and training certificates in McKay's file, saying those are part of McKay's confidential personnel file. Six of the eight complaints were filed in 1997; the other two were filed in 1999 and 2000."
I don't swear anymore on this blawg, but that would be a bald-faced lie. First there was Troy Watts's 2005 complaint about not only the use of OC Spray, but then McKay lying in Court.
Now I am reading a pdf copy of another 2005 complaint sent to the town about McKay's use of OC Spray at Profile School involving two minors on or about 16 May 2005.
"Contact the Franconia Selectboard to confirm the many complaints of Officer Mackays [sic] inappropriate actions in the community.
Anyone should be afraid to have him represent Franconia's legal team. He is a loaded cannon waiting to go off and he is going to hurt someone worse than he did to these two young men.
If you were to be sprayed and have it burn your eyes so bad I'm sure I would become aggressive also and fight back.
I will upload the entire document later today or tomorrow but this is truly pathetic. To have a town run under by a bully like Bruce McKay is one thing. But not to own up to it after the fact and admit it is yet another. Meanwhile, even people on the Franconia Reconciliation and Recovery Committee are stewing over this, generational community residents are upset and college students are writing KingCast for information on senior thesis projects.
