    Crime & Punishment: Police Apprehend Interstate Tractor Thief
    Gregory Beck, a town-employed emergency dispatcher, has been asked by his own party to give up his seat on the Brookfield Board of Education because of a Facebook comment about the Sandy Hook massacre that no one liked. The Newtown Patch website profiled a Newtown native's "26 Days of Kindness," a simple initiative encouraging people to do one nice thing a day in the 26 days leading up to the first anniversary of the tragedy.

Both town Republicans (who endorsed him) and Democrats have asked Beck to give up his seat. Beck apologized and called his comments "completely indefensible" but told the Danbury News-Times he won't resign.
