Seabrook's message: No one above the law here
In November of 2009, officers Mark Richardson and Adam Laurent were escorting Michael Bergeron, then 19, to a cell when Richardson suddenly slammed Bergeron so hard against a wall that Bergeron’s head snapped back and his body went limp. The officers filed a report stating that Bergeron was aggressive and uncooperative.
We were impressed both with the disciplinary actions and the release of the report. So often in cases like these, town officials hide information by claiming they cannot discuss personnel matters. Other New Hampshire municipalities now have an example to follow when dealing with similar cases.
