    CT - FBI arrests 4 officers in troubled New Haven suburb

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read...org%3E&ps=1011

    EAST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) Four police officers, including the president of the local police union, were arrested Tuesday by the FBI on charges that they assaulted illegal immigrants and covered up abuses in a New Haven suburb where a federal investigation found life was made miserable for Hispanics.

    The East Haven officers assaulted individuals while they were handcuffed, unlawfully searched Latino businesses, and harassed and intimidated individuals, including advocates, witnesses and other officers who tried to investigate or report misconduct or abuse the officers committed, according to the federal indictment.

    Federal authorities began investigating police in 2009 in East Haven, where the federal probe last month documented a pattern of abuse.

    It is shameful that things like this are still going on in our society. As an American, it embarrasses me. People need to get along and stop trying to find someone to pick on. I am completely disgusted.

    It's getting bigger....

    FBI Targets More Suspects in Conn. Police Scandal

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/f...andal-15467566

    The arrests of four police officers accused of tyrannizing Latinos could mark the start of a bigger scandal in this working-class suburb, where the FBI is targeting additional suspects. The state is preparing for the possibility of widespread arrests that could cripple the town's police department.

    Federal prosecutors have urged witnesses to come forward with details of abuses in East Haven, which was rocked by last week's arrests of the officers. The FBI described them as a "cancerous cadre" that subjected Hispanics to beatings and false arrests.
    ------

    The Connecticut governor's liaison on criminal justice policy, Mike Lawlor, said the state is prepared to step in and bolster the East Haven police department if necessary.

    "State police are continuing to monitor the possibility that a significant number of police officers will be indicted," he said. "It seems like that is going to happen."

    The police chief, Leonard Gallo, is apparently referred to by the federal grand jury as an unnamed co-conspirator, accused of blocking efforts by the police commission to investigate misconduct. His attorney has denied the allegations and criticized prosecutors for including the reference to him when he is not charged.
