Maplewood City Council Policy & Politics


You Talkin' to Me?

At Monday's council meeting, city council candidate Dave Hafner declared, "I called the police on him twice," in reference to Mr. Downs, the neighbor who had previously brought issues to the council about Hafner's behavior.

After the meeting, Mr. Downs provided me with a copy of the police report from one of those calls. On 9/19/09, Hafner called the police to report what he regarded as harassment. As recorded by the responding police officer, the "harassment" consisted of Hafner's neighbor "staring at me from his steps" and making "a comment which was inaudible, however I think it was directed at me."

I've uploaded two pages of the report (redacting some information in the interests of privacy) so you can read the whole narrative for yourself.
