Connecticut Police State legislation:

Sounds good on the surface, but there has been public corruption, scandals, lack of public trust, and gross police, prosecutorial, official, and judicial misconduct in Connecticut. Police in Connecticut can't operate an internal affairs department that safeguards the public and curtails police brutality, misconduct, thefts, rapes, and assaults committed by Connecticut Police officers and members of the judiciary complicit in covering up misconduct and in helping retaliate against whistle blowers.
