More Connecticut Police Misconduct?

Cop Shoots Fellow Officer With Taser
2:32 PM EDT, May 10, 2006 By MONICA POLANCO, The Hartford Courant

EAST WINDSOR -- An officer who struck another officer with a Taser Monday has been suspended pending the outcome of criminal and internal investigations into the matter.

The officers, whose names have been withheld, were in a roll call room at the police department on Monday when the officer who is under investigation discharged a Taser at about 4:15 p.m., said Chief Edward DeMarco. Two darts designed to deliver an electrical impulse shot out of the Taser. One of the darts struck the other officer in the mouth and lodged in his gums, DeMarco said. The other dart struck a cord in his neck area.

Another officer summoned paramedics stationed in the same building and the injured officer was taken to Hartford Hospital, where he was treated and released. The injured officer, who has worked for the department for about 4 years, has not yet returned to work due to his injuries.

The officer who DeMarco said discharged the Taser has been relieved of his police duties pending the results of the investigations, which are being handled separately and are expected to conclude this week, DeMarco said. That officer has worked for the department for 18 years.

DeMarco declined to release any details about the officers' tenure at his department, citing the ongoing investigation, but said Monday's incident was unusual

"This is an isolated incident that should not speak about the other police officers in this building that operate daily in a very safe and professional manner, providing public safety services to the entire town," DeMarco said.

This is just the tip of the ice berg regarding BAD cops in Connecticut. Here in East Hampton the PUNK cops are out of control with a record to prove it. A couple in particular lie, exaggerate and do whatever it takes to make phony arrest on a regular basis.Some day they will do it to the wrong person and I cannot wait. A real Barney Fife mentality except it is not funny to us, the citizens and victims of their misconduct. They are nothing more than Bus drivers with badges here. A real disgrace !

Then you have a Newspaper like the Middletown Press who on their web site solicit comments about their stories but will NOT publish them if there is any criticism of Agencies like the The out of control shiftless, unprofessional,dispicable scum like the East Hampton Police Department. If the prosecutors were doing their jobs correctly they would question some of the phony arrest warrent applications that these punks make up and not just sign off on them. Civil Rights as well as Constitutional Rights are being violated here and the day will come when these bastards are investigated by Federal Authorities with some semblence of honesty and integrity.
