Strange...you don't see too many black cops in that town, though many residents r black!?!
Does sound like discrimination to me also.
Why couldn't police chief fire Officer Tinsley who physically abused a disabled 12 year old boy in his own home instead??

Why doesn't the crazy white cop who attacked the 12 yr. old disabled boy in boy's house get 15
yrs. in jail?!? He deserve that a lot more than the black cop who was arrested!

To tell you the truth there's a ton of crazy, creepy white people now living in East Hartford.
I think the white trash has actually taken over that town now.
All the nice, decent folks are moving OUT of that town, because their safety's being put at risk by crazy white cops there.
I think they'd be better off hiring Black cops if those cops are decent law enforcement officers.
The town's been sued multiple times due to Police corruption & abuse.
No wonder taxes are so high in that town.
Gosh, don't vote for Mayor LeClerc if she insists on keeping a creepy abusive white cop on
the force!
She's not doing the taxpayers a bit of good.
She could have seen to it, that Officer Tinsley whom attacked the disabled boy, would have been fired, if she wanted to.
What on earth is so "safe" about a town which allows cops to abuse disabled kids in their own home?????
