Hartford Homeowner Kills Burglary Suspect

KUDOS TO THE HOMEOWNER!!!!!!!! As a retired police officer, I investigated a case similar to this years ago. A business owner responded to his business when the nurglar alarm went off. He responded before the police, and was confronted by the burglar who had a bumper jack in his possession. The business man then produced his hanfgun, which he was licensed to carry, and ordered the burglar to drop the items he stole and the bumper. Now the burglar, who was a "fine upstanding" (wink wink) citizen refused, and weilding the bumper jack above his head, ordered the businessman to drop his gun. He then charged at the owner, on the premises by the way, and the owner shot him several times. I arrived, and found the suspect about 50 yards away bleeding and covered with mud. Anyways, the owner was taken to the detective bureau and gave a statement. Later in the day, he was given his gun and permit back and lauded as a hero, and obviously not charged. The suspect died 12 hours later at the hospital. The homeowner in this case, obviously was in the same predicament, and in fear for his life, and according to CGS was allowed to use dealy force to defened himself and his property. If he is charged, and I seriously doubt that he will be, something is seriously wrong with our justice system. My hat goes off to you, brave homeowner. Hartford needs more braave souls like yourself.  (Jun 8, 2007 | post #36)

Conviction Overturned For Man Accused Of Starting Car Whi...

I am going out on a limb here.....I am going to guess that you are a "minority " living in the north end of the city, have been arrested for various offenses. Also that you are probably edumacated from the wonderful hartford school system, and basically are illiterate. So go back on the corner and continue whatever it is that you do.  (Jun 7, 2007 | post #6)

Conviction Overturned For Man Accused Of Starting Car Whi...

First off, one can not operate a motor vehicle that has been started by remote without inserting the keys into the ignition and turning the ignition to the "on" position. Read what his lawyer said. I have a remote starter, and know damn well that if you depress the brake pedal to put the vehicle in gear, without the keys inserted and the ignition turned to the "on" position, the car automatically shuts off. Had the keys been in the ignition, turned to the "on" position, then he would've been convicted of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs (CGS 14-224), as he would've been technically operating said vehicle. People like you, and most liberals (I'm guessing that you are a Democrat) criticize the police if they do their job or fail to do their job. Remember, if the police chase a robbery suspect...let's rephrase that...If a robbery suspect leads the police on a high speed chase and crashes into another vehicle, killing one or more occupants (innocent motorists), you say the police shouldn't've chased him. If the same suspect sees a police car, and gets nervous and flees without the police in pursuit-with the cops knowing who he is-and he crashes into another car and kills the innocent motorist, you would cry "Why didn't they try to stop him?!!" Police officers are damned if they do, damned if they don't. As a retired police officer, I have seen people criticize about just the same thing. Whether it's false arrest or the lack of an arrest. Don't be quick to crucify the police or the prosecutors about this incident, because the police made the arrest based on the interpretation of the law as it was written into the statutes. I am pleased that the conviction was overturned, and Mr Cyr was set free of a criminal charge. I am sure that his ruling will find its way into the next legislature session to rewrite the technicalities that legally state when a person is accused-not convicted-of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Then again, I respect your right to voice your opinion; however I am just trying to educate you and the general public about the laws and how they are supposed to be enforced. To answer your other question, technically the cops can't arrest you for carrying a can of gasoline and a book of matches. And yes, they would have to wait for you to start the commission of the crime before arresting you. Then again, I don't think that there is a criminal out there stupid enough to try it either. But then again, I have seen some pretty stupid criminals in my 20 years on the job.  (Jun 7, 2007 | post #5)

Waterbury Fires Officer Accused Of Sexual Assault

notice how the businessman was held on bond, and this pig, in every sense of the word, was released on bond? they should've locked his butt up and let him get justice inside, afterall, they don't like cops and they don't like child molestors in prison. initially, he should've been suspended without pay, considering he was charged with several felonies. luckily, he won't be able to apply for his pension, but unfortunately, he'll get whatever is in it.  (May 30, 2007 | post #6)

Bid To Move Psychiatric Inmate Criticized

what the heck has this crap got to do with anything?? Why don't you take your liberal minded stupidity to whiting and get yourself examined. The topic is not about racism, as you wrote, but about allowing some loonatic out of max security in a nut house and moving him to less restrictive environment. That said, he ambushed 3 state troopers, nearly killing them. Nothing about racism, stupid. This piece of garbage should be in 4 point restraints for the next 90 years.  (May 19, 2007 | post #15)

Enfield Officer Suspended

Hey Jack ....what's wrong with a couple having a domestic dispute?? Have you ever had a fight w/your old lady? Maybe because a person wears a badge, doesn't mean that they are to stop being humans...Maybe you need to get some po-po justice, and spend a night in the lockup...Ain't no fun...Most cops DO think that they are above the law, then again, a cop can't arrest one of their own (same dept) without a supervisor doing so. Yes, under Connecticut General Statutes on domestic violence, as throughout most of the USA, arrests are mandatory in domestic violence cases if there are signs of physical violence or the propensity for violence. Either one or both parties go to jail. I personally know of a couple in Hartford that were arrested more than 90 times, yes 90 times, for domestic violence. They go to court and tell the judge/prosecutor that they really don't want to pursue the charges, and that's that. As far as knocking the cops, give it a rest, for someday you'll be the victim of a crime, and who are you going to cry to? The POLICE.  (May 9, 2007 | post #13)

Bridgeport's Mayor Won't Run Again

He should've been removed from office or arrested for stealing city time to get high....Just another dirtbag cokehead....Maybe he and Perez can get together and do a couple of lines together and talk about how to ruin cops' careers. Have another snort, John.  (May 8, 2007 | post #4)

Kicking Plastic Bag Habit

I think the surcharge on buying electronics is a crock of **** ...it's bad enough that the gov't is proposing a $100 per bulb fine (story appeared in the wonderful Courant sometime ago) after the phase out of incandescant bulbs goes into effect. Like Disgusted Taxpayer said, about taking our money..just like the bottle bill. Take a look around the highways and roadways and everywhere else, and look at all the empty bottles. It seems that political correctness is getting way out of hand, and scientists and gov't leaders are doing the best they can to brainwash the country.  (May 6, 2007 | post #12)

On Wet Road, `Officer Down'

This is why these things are called "A-C-C-I-D-E- N-T-S. Unfortunately, a very well respected police officer lost his life. My condolences to the family. I believe that the prosecutors and police did their very best in investigating this tragedy, and getting to their findings. If you were the operator of the vehicle that struck and killed a police officer, or any citizen, and you were not charged, would you argue that you should be held liable or something? It was a freaking accident. Sure, fault will be found with the opertion of the construction site, but that's a different thing. He did not intentionally cause serious physical injury or death....that constitutes manslaughter!!!!  (Apr 25, 2007 | post #19)
