I know. These comments boards are a depressing look into the angry underbelly of our state. The anonymity of them permits very alientated people to express their darkest/vilest thoughts.

Wow what a bunch of losers you commentators are. It is not about believing it's racist. Why don't we concentrate on educating the public about letting in these losers - who want your belongings and money. NEVER NEVER open your doors. Always check out of a window to see who is there, and if you didnot order anything / through delivery, why would you open the door? With so many people laid off ( because of our stupid economy) you will have more and more of such incidents. BE AWARE AT ALL TIMES. GOOD LUCK. Hope it doesn't happen to you.

Don't open your door if someone out there is wearing a mask unless it is Oct. 31.

Actually I grew up in Newington and this didn't happen. It isn't racist to notice that a lot of pureto ricans are moving into town. What do you wanna bet that this crime was committed by pureto ricans on parole, who live in New Britain?
Why does it matter what race moves in? Why does everything have to be "white"??? White people are on parole too and criminals, child molesters, rapist etc.

There is obviously something more to this. This is not a random home invasion. Someone ripped someone off. This sounds like drug dealers looking for their drugs or money owed to them.

I am a SWF and I live alone with my daughter in a poor black area. I moved here to finish school as my exes family lives in the area and helped babysit. I am now a professional but I haven't left the area yet. I live on the second floor of a duplex. No cars were in my driveway when a well dressed white or light Latin man rang my doorbell on 2/27 friday night at 7pm saying he could offer me lower electricity rates(anyone going in my trash would know i am having trouble keeping up with paying it)The man insisted he see a bill of mine.I chose to speak to him through a top glass paned but deadbolted front door. I instead just gave him a verbal rough estimate-he said most everyone qualifies but he just needed to see a bill. I asked him for a business card or ID of which he had none and when I asked if there was someone i could call later he said no. I then said I wasn't interested. He then replied," your not interested in saving money?" I said no as i was closing the second dead bolted solid door. I quickly ran upstairs to grab a pen and got the license plate number-it was not connecticut plates..but it was a smaller newer than 5 years old red model sedan.plate was EJU 1090-the police have this info now as they came by after I called them. The man was not alone in his car and there was a group of young people who happened to be walking by the car so i felt safe in pursuing getting the plate number..but when the man saw me with my paper he drove very fast to get away..was he really trying to offer lower electric rates?? I am glad I didn't open the door or leave the locked glass paned front door unattended to grab an old bill as my 8 year old daughter and I were alone in the entire house-Has anyone heard of this type of offer or scam?

You were very smart in the way you handled this. Never open your door to a stranger.

Entering a home illegally happens all the time in Newington, CT.

Targets of stalking experience this continuously. Vile neighbors look the other way. They are just as accountable and accessories to this crime.
