Great Job again,by the East Haven Police.
What's up with the New Haven Police?

Are they afraid to use thier weapons to protect those at the scene?
It was in New Haven, right?

Wow! Are cops going to be punished for doing their jobs here? Isn't that what CT does now? Protect the home invaders,rapists and child predators while persecuting Cops when they step up to defend us? Thank God for these Officers who weren't hurt and did their jobs. I am sick of hearing about innocent victims in our communities preyed upon by the violent recidivist offenders set free again and again to brutalize and butcher us due to CTs unsaid catch and release plicy on violet offenders. This is an excellent example of true Justice served and one of the few times I've heard of recently where an offender will never be free to terrorize CT. God Bless these Officers and those who protect the blissfully ignorant from the animals who walk among us.

East Haven Police are bad. The arrested my 17 year old son, he did commit a crime and deserved to be punished. The court should decide the punishment not EHPD. SGT. Montagna and his team refused to give him a phone call and verbally abused him for hours, they told him he going to Whalley Ave jail with adults where he will get "fucked in the ass". A female office finally stepped in, crying and let my son use the phone. I also heard one of the officers say he was going to beat my son. My son used to love police and always wanted to be a cop. Luckily he doent dislike all police and understands this is a local police problem and not all police are like this, but he, like many people has no respect for EHPD.

Great job with our children EHPD!!!!!!!!!!

If you cant get on as a state policeman, New Haven or Hartford they come to East Haven. East Haven gets officers who cant get a job anywhere else. There are a few exceptions. EH does have a few good officers.

Hey jerk, this woman was referring to someone who was killed by East Haven Police in a very sad incident and you reply to her like that. Some people go beyond ignorance to truly hateful.
Grow up.

Carmen, I remember that incident very well, and I am very sorry for your loss.

Wow, Mike. That is awful. I am not familar with Sgt. Montagna, but I do know some of the EHPD and many of them are very good with kids when they first get arrested and try to give them advice and help them out. I am shocked that officers would say those things to a 17 year old kid. Did you inform the Chief of Police? I certainly would. That is uncalled for. They do however take discretion with the phone call and unlike in the shows we see they do not have to offer it right away, but the language they used was disgraceful. I am sure they were trying to scare him from getting into trouble again, but they went about it all wrong.

Malik and this other nut were both criminals who played the game and both paid with their lives. They did teach 2 very valuable lessons
1) Try and hit a cop with your car, get shot
2) point a gun at a cop, get shot.

As far as the 17year old, I know Sgt Montagna, and I find what your accusing him off so far out of his character its unbelievable.

Your kid wouldn't happen to be one of these disrespectful little pricks that runs around like a bad ass then cries to mommy and daddy when he gets talked to badly cux his lil feelings got hurt is he.
