Was this the same swat team that FAILED to check the second floor of a house where a Newington cop was murdered by another rabid cop and instead cleared out an entire neighborhood for four hours looking for a killer that had taken his life on the second floor of the house that they NEVER SEARCHED?PATHETIC KEYSTONES

You should really check your facts... that is not how it happened nor was SWAT involved in the search of the home.

I wouldn't trust the police either. I'm not surprised he thought they would attack him.

I was hoping this report would follow-up regarding how he purchased so many illegal guns in a year period. Especially since he had a prior felony conviction and is not allowed to purchase any weapons.

You are right. Especially there are laws against this. Oh yah, that's right, criminals don't follow laws.

full auto firearms are not illegal in ct nor are suppressors so long as they are registered with the atf and tax stamps are paid for each item these are considered class 3 nfa items which anyone with a valid gun permit can own unless your a felon do the research also check our states assault weapons laws do not make nor possess illegal machine guns or suppressors its a big nono and dont believe everything the media prints

want the true story? Kari was disabled at the time as a result of an injury during his empyoyment with uconn health ctr..dept of surgery. he had no felony record....,fact! he was under the care of a workers comp doc. snipers in surrounding homes had the green light to shoot him and his wife. all his firearms were were legal. only when he and his wife filed a complaint with paul melanson did they respond. He and his wife were abused and robbed by whpd.he dedicated his life to saving lives since 1984. they called police abuse.com for help and was used for propaganda. what a shame! dont buy it...try foia if you can get a response. dirty cops...corruption at the highest level. any news worthy station...3 would not cooperate...he called them to ensure his wifes saftey. no expiration date on karma!!!!!!!!
