WOW. Ackeem Riley was not found to have a gun. No witnesses. Actually a drive by and he was found guilty. Yet, the police found this man with the murder weapon, and because he is White there seems to be a problem convicting him, but there was no such problem convicting Ackeem Riley. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE. CONNECTICUT SHOULD BE ASHAMED AT THE JUSTICE SYSTEM THERE.

Does anyone else find it interesting that we have all these murders and shootings in Hartford and every time the police make an arrest there are dozens of people including the guy who got arrested who come out and say the cops got it wrong, the wrong guy got arrested, the shooter was framed, he was just a troubled youth, he just needs a program and this would have never happened, and all kinds of other stuff? I mean doesn't that trouble anyone? Hartford residents often ask why they are looked upon so poorly - well in the last five years you have had major advances in DNA and Gun Shot Residue. Face the facts Hartford - Maybe ten years ago you might have been able to claim crappy police or scientific work, but today the only way to win a new trial is to Claim ineffective council!!!

Hartford has lots of good people living in it. When are they going to stand up and be heard and put these thugs, murderers, and rapist in their place - JAIL.

You want change - You have to be heard - you can't just call foul or try and spend your way out if it. Hartford's decent residents need to stand up and make a difference. Or shut the F********** up.
