How about Madison CT Police of 5 years ago? But Malik Johnson was not a choir boy when the E.Haven Police shot him like the liberal media made out. He was a career criminal at 19.

How about CT has had 0% job growth in 20 years yet we have population growth? The doll is on the rise only one can argue?

25% of Willamantic is on Food Stamps and Medicaid?

These are not positive signs or a great reputation for CT!

Looks like the chief is going to "retire" before he gets his ass fired.

East Haven chief stepping down - NewsTimes


LOL. Maturo is still keeping his foot planted in his mouth:
"If there's a certain type of Latino that I should have picked, well then let somebody write it down on paper," Maturo told the Register. "`I want a 5-foot-2, I want a certain sex.' You tell me what you guys want. You want me to order it?"
When a reporter pointed out Puerto Ricans are American citizens who can freely come and go from the island without having to file immigration paperwork, Maturo lashed out.
"I mean, if I had to pick an Italian, do I pick a northern Italian?," he asked. "A southern Italian? We're Italians. I picked a Latino. Did it have to come from a certain section of the country? You know what? I think that's a foolish statement to make. And I feel bad that you made it. ... I wouldn't make a statement like that. I brought in a Latino. Is he not dark enough for you? Light enough for you?"

What an idiot. The guy just can't keep his mouth shut.

The chief is making a wise move financially. He'll walk away with his pension intact. He has more to worry about than being fired. Evidently he is un indicted co-conspirator # 1 as noted on the federal case. I suspect he'll be arrested fairly soon. Leaving now he gets out before the you know what hits the fan and has a chance of adversely impacting his pension, accrued sick time etc.

Whether we approve or not at least he knows how to act in his own self interest. Maturo should take lessons from him. Little East Haven is fast becoming a laughing stock of the country. Even CNN has picked up the story.

Don't worry about people finding out if CNN picked it up. Don't they have the lowest ratings, like no one watches them. Even MSNBC has higher ratings.

I'm not Hispanic so I personally don't care, but how dumb do you have to be to say this publicly.
