Last time I went to the ROOST I had my 82 year old father-in-law with me and there was no handicapped parking available and when I questioned this I was told by management "We are grandfather claused on the handicapped law" and when I replied thats not true I was laughed at and dismissed. I've never been back. Farmington selectmen let us down on this one. The stairs are a help but making the ROOST comply with state & federal handicap laws would have been money better spent.
While I am not in favor of big conglomerates over local "Mom & Pop" stores..I have to agree with Mark Elliott who below brought up the fact that the maggots would not have survived being cooked. Kudos to the reporter for doing the rare thing these days which is "Good Investigative Reporting", its nice to read a real unbiased investigated story for a change.
Farmington is not as big as you might think and as much as I do not particularly care for the PD I will call a spade a spade on this one and say that being as small a area as Farmington is 99 & 9/10% of the "outlaw" element knows where this said secure building is and ANYONE with a sack or lack of brains could of easily broken in and grabbed them. That being said.... KUDOS to the grabbers...there's one less case that should go to court seeing as how chain of custody and most of the evidence is now missing from the original victimless crime.
