WHERE: STETSON LIBRARY, 202 DIXWELL AVENUE
TIME: 3-5 PM
TOPIC: POLICE AND COMMUNITY RELATIONS
Please join us to discuss concerns for public safety in New Haven. With the recent incident in which a 15 year old handcuffed girl was slammed to the ground by a police officer leaving her with a fractured shoulder and abrasions to her face it’s cause for concern. When that officer has a brutality lawsuit pending in Milford there is cause for concern. The fact that he was expeditiously exonerated after a record breaking Internal Affairs investigation and now free to patrol our community again there is cause for concern. The chief’s explanation for what many in the community feel was excessive force “When the officer saw a knife on the girl during the arrest he got scared” is cause for concern. The lack of transparency in the investigation is cause for concern. Was justice served? Join us in making that determination.
