Burlington, VT – Mayor Weinberger today released the following statement regarding the incident on Saturday, September 30 in which Jason Breault cut a Burlington Police Department officer with a knife. “It is unacceptable that someone who has been arrested 20 times in ten months, sometimes for violent crimes, and has repeatedly violated his conditions of release, was in a position to threaten the public and harm a police officer this past Saturday. I welcome that Judge Fenster chose to hold Mr. Breault without bail. The City will continue to work toward a system where there are appropriate consequences for violent crimes, and where people with mental health disorders all get the right treatment at the right place at the right time.”
